A box track is a track type that uses a box-shaped spine. All roller coasters built by Bolliger & Mabillard have a box track.
Old Intamin AG roller coasters, such as Flashback at Six Flags Magic Mountain and stand-up coaster Cobra at La Ronde also use box-track. This is because the founders of Bolliger & Mabillard used to work for Intamin.
Single Rail Track
A single rail track uses one exterior guide rail to carry along a car versus the traditional two-rail configuration
A skeleton track typically uses a square-shaped or triangle-shaped skeletal framework as the track spine.This kind of track is typically found on Intamin coasters and Gerstlauer Eurofighters.
