[[File:Maverick (Cedar Point) 2009 LSM lift hill.jpg|thumb|An LSM-powered lift hill on [[Maverick]] at [[Cedar Point]]]] A '''linear synchronous motor''' ('''LSM''') is a form of electro-magnetic propulsion containing no moving parts. The launch system is used to launch a [[roller coaster]] [[train]] to a high speed quickly. They are a relatively new launch technology and are now favored over the older [[linear induction motor]] technology. The first use of linear synchronous motors for launching a train was in 1997 with the opening of [[Superman: Escape From Krypton]] at [[Six Flags Magic Mountain]] and [[Tower of Terror II]] at [[Dreamworld]].
