LSM Launch Coaster[1] (formerly known as Blitz Coaster) is a range of roller coasters designed by Intamin which use LSM technology to launch the train. It has superseded Intamin's hydraulically launched Accelerator Coaster product as it requires less maintenance. Unlike the Accelerator Coaster, an LSM Launch Coaster can incorporate multiple LSM launches or lift hills.
