    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Sets out requirements and guidance specific to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of roller coasters. It is intended for use in conjunction with AS3533.1, AS3533.2 and AS3533.3.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements and guidance for the design, construction, operation and maintenance of roller coasters.NOTE: This Standard refers to roller coasters whose main characteristic is that the motion of the vehicle is produced mainly by an exchange between potential and kinetic energy, and where an initial store of potential energy is provided by an elevating, launch or self-driven system. Coasters falling into this category may employ trains of interconnected vehicles, an individual vehicle or a number of individual vehicles, and may incorporate features in their track design which cause inversions (loops) and high accelerations. They may travel in both forward and reverse directions.
