Track Takeover
Roller Coaster Tech Challenge

Kickoff on December 3rd, 2022

Register your teams by December 17th!

What is the Ride Engineering Competition?

The Ride Engineering Competition offers students a chance to demonstrate real-world engineering practices within the industry focus of ride engineering and design. Student teams will design, plan, and manufacture an attraction for small riders based on a prompt that includes a plot of land and desired rider experience.

What is different this year?
  1. The Ride Engineering Competition is now a non-profit! We are run by a team of volunteer students and young professionals with a goal to bring stability to the competition and ensure its success for many years to come!

  2. Roller Coasters! In previous years, roller coasters were not allowed due to their size and complexity. This year, the REC team has developed a program to allow every team to make roller coaster technology within a reasonable footprint.
