App description: AirCoaster is still the ONLY realistic 3D roller coaster simulator for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. If you love roller coasters and thrill rides, this is the app for you!

AirCoaster made iLounge's Top 100 Essential iPhone Apps list in 2009 and 2010.

The New York Times GadgetWise blog calls AirCoaster "particularly fun to play with."

Engadget.com says AirCoaster is "filled with fun ways to interact with the iPad." Take your own roller coasters for "a dizzying first-person ride."

AirCoaster has also been featured on touchArcade.com, the San Francisco Examiner, 148apps.com and more!

AirCoaster brings awesome 3D fun to your iPhone/iPod touch/iPad.

Create your own roller coaster tracks with our powerful yet easy to use multitouch 3D track editor. Use 1 finger to rotate, 2 to zoom and pan around, as you nudge and tweak each track segment to create the perfect ride. Once you are done, buckle up and ride your very own roller coaster!

AirCoaster's advanced simulation engine lets you create both regular and suspension/inverted roller coasters. Your roller coaster starts and stops at a station, just like in real life. You can even place up to 6 trains on the track at once for the maximum thrill level.

Don't want to create your own tracks? Go to the Community tab and download any of over tens of thousands of tracks. Interact with your favorite track creators, write on their walls, follow them, and more!

ziconic's comments:
Got my iPad today and ran AirCoaster XL on it for the first time. It's aaaawesome. After weeks of coding using an iPad simulator, it's a relief to see that it truly works well on the actual device.



With the iPad I was finally able to create a multitouch roller coaster track editor that is truly usable. Trying to create a roller coaster on a tiny iPhone screen never really felt right.

In AirCoaster XL you can navigate around your track using 1 finger to rotate, 2 to zoom and 3 to pan. Tweak and adjust any segment in the track by tapping on the segment to select it and then dragging the manipulator tools (the colored 3D arrows) to get it to look the way you want.

Check out the screenshots. Gotta love the 1024x768 screen resolution.
