Intamin's newest launch system features the 5th generation of Linear Synchronous Motors, LSM. These LSMs utilize the principle of electromagnetic fields to launch the train from the station at high speeds in a short amount of time. Not only do LSMs reduce the cost of maintenance compared to other launch systems, but the system can also be reversed to act as magnetic brakes.
LSM Launch Coasters have proven to be the incredibly popular around the world. The vehicles are designed so that guests are comfortable and securely positioned for the high accelerations. Layouts can include all the usual combinations of figures and elements, such as traditional loops, rolls, corkscrews, airtime, etc. The very popular, open design of the trains enhances the overall thrill, and the variety of elements allows free range for parks to develop unique, immersive layouts.
