A linear induction motor (LIM) is a form of electro-magnetic propulsion containing no moving parts. They may replace a traditional lift hill and brakes. Typically LIM systems launch the roller coaster train from the station extremely quickly. They have since been superseded by linear synchronous motor technology.
