Other Information[edit]

  • Unlike any other roller coasters with Powered Launch, LIM is only one which can operate Powered Launch with Block Sectioned while the others must use OpenRCT2 or 8 Cars per Trainer to operate that mode by editing further runs.
  • LIM Powered Launch is similar to Corkscrew Roller Coaster which Powered Launch Mode doesn't pass the station.
  • In rare cases, Break failures can cause the train to pass through the station instead of stopping at the end of the station. Prevent by build the reverse section or making the ride as a circuit run.

In Real Life[edit]

The LIM (Linear Induction Motor) Coaster is manufactured in real life by Premier Rides. No LIM coasters were in RCT2's Six Flags parks, even though they are present in the real-life versions of these parks (two in Six Flags Great Adventure, one in Six Flags Over Texas). Great Adventure's named its LIM coaster Batman and Robin: The Chiller, Over Texas named its LIM coaster Mr. Freeze Blast Coaster (now Mr. Freeze: Reverse Blast). Great Adventure removed their two coasters in 2007 after a variety of issues forced them to close the rides indefinitely. They were located just south of where Nitro is in the park. The LIM coaster was infamous for having a rough ride and the fact that the magnets used to launch and stop the train required frequent maintenance and often didn't even work (sometimes causing the trains to valley, especially with Great Adventure's coasters). The trains on the LIM coasters featured over-the-shoulder restraints, which were quickly replaced by simple lap bars and ankle braces in 2001-2002 due to comfort issues.

A detailed history of the two LIM coasters in Great Adventure can be found here.
