The train leaving the station on the Runaway Mine Train

Stations are sections of track where riders load into and out of the cars. Stations use brakes to stop the train, and sometimes use friction wheels, LIMs, or are slightly inclined to move the train out of the station.

Duel Station

A Duel Station is a type of station used on certain rides that is simply two stations side-by-side. The track splits in two before entering the station, and after leaving. This means a train can load riders while another train unloads. An example of this is Air at Alton Towers and Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure.

Fly-through Station

A feature on some rides (mainly Boomerang models) is a Fly-Through Station. This involves the train entering the station at a high speed and passing through. An example of this is Boomerang at Knott's Berry Farm.
