Many already know that RollerCoaster Tycoon is a series of simulation video games that lets players build and manage an amusement park. Each game challenges players with open-ended amusement park management, development, and construction. Marcel Vos has created “12 Years of Suffering” a ride that that doesn’t end for 12 straight years in real-world time. Simply put, it’s two separate coasters that have been joined together, with one taking up almost all of the park with single carts that go around 20 times and another on a smaller track that features 30 carts.

“The catch is that the cars on the small coaster are loaded with passengers from the big coaster, and can only move forward one section once the big coaster finishes a single ride, which using the upper limit of what’s allowed in the game is 20 laps. It’s similar to a small gear turning a big gear, expect in this instance it’s the smaller coaster that ends up taking the longest amount of time to complete—12 years and a couple hundred days if you calculate everything out.,” according to Kotaku.
