Booster Tracks are placeable furniture-type blocks that can be placed next to Minecart Tracks to automatically boost the speed of a Minecart that rides over it. The direction of the boost is indicated by the animated red arrow it displays, which can be toggled using a Hammer or wire. Each Booster Track increases speed by 20 mph, regardless of the Minecart variant used. The Booster Track can be purchased from the Mechanic for 50 SC.


  • If a Minecart rolls over a Booster Track while traveling in the direction opposite that of the Booster Track's setting, the Booster Track acts as a braking mechanism and slows the Minecart's movement, possibly reversing direction.
  • When a Booster Track is not connected to Minecart Tracks on both sides, its direction cannot be changed.
  • Three boosters in a row will accelerate to the top speed for the (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) default minecart, at 51 mph. Three boosters and a short press of the movement button is sufficient for the Minecart at 66 mph, and five boosters (with one tap of a movement key) for any Minecart boosted by the Minecart Upgrade Kit at 102 mph.
