Back Lot Stunt Coaster

3… 2… 1… Action!,┬áBacklot Stunt Coaster

On The Backlot Stunt Coaster, riders quickly become stunt car drivers as their cars races out onto the track. As the custom stunt cars peel out, everyone is transported into the stunt chase sequence. Drivers twist through a parking garage, dodge near-collisions, race down stairs, chase through tunnels and narrowly escape massive explosions triggered by gunfire from a menacing helicopter. Tires skid out one last time as the stunt cars crash through a billboard and splash down into an L.A. aqueduct concluding the chase sequence and their screen test trial as a stunt driver.

WHAT IT IS:The Backlot Stunt Coaster is a high-speed stunt car adventure that combines Hollywood special effects with high tech coaster thrills. Guests board their very own tricked out stunt car for a multi-sensory adventure they will want to take again and again.

THE HOLLYWOOD CONNECTION:The Backlot Stunt Coaster takes families on a high-speed stunt car adventure through movie sets and scenes inspired by movie chase sequences.

Lights, camera, action – the ride experience recreates six scenes:

  • Scene One – Race through parking garage
  • Scene Two – Fly down subway stairs
  • Scene Three – Dodge police cars
  • Scene Four – Screech to a halt and narrowly avoid gunfire from a helicopter
  • Scene Five – Chase through sewer tunnel
  • Scene Six – Plunge through a billboard and into an LA aqueduct

STUNT CARS:Each stunt car features a power slide effect, which creates a fishtailing sensation. Hang on for some intense curves and driving sequences. From the cool coloring, to the vanity license plates, these cars are as detailed as the ones found at the dealer. And – to make sure they provide the right level of thrill, even the cars’ wheels were specifically selected for the rapid acceleration of the train. 1,000 stunt drivers per hour will ride their cars through the coolest coaster in the MidAtlantic!

STUNT TRACK:1,960 feet of rail track making up a two minute experience – the coolest ride in a stunt car ever. The cars climb to a height of 45.2 feet and the total stunt track elevation climbs higher to 53.3 feet of thrills. Beware of the 31.2 feet drop that takes place when you least expect it!

RAPID SPEED:The ride catapults guests using linear induction motors at rapid speeds up to 40 mph. With the three peels out, and an 88 degree banked turn, these cars will earn guests a speeding ticket if they are not careful.

THE COASTER:The Backlot Stunt Coaster is a multiple LIM (linear induction motor) launch circuit coaster. Trains are propelled in the station with drive tires and in the launch and boost zones by linear induction motors. Linear induction motors are propulsion units that are used where either high thrust or high speed propulsion is needed. Propulsion is achieved when currents are produced by the interaction of an electromagnetic field generated by the LIM and an aluminum reaction plate on the cars. The currents produced by this interaction create a magnetic field that opposes the original magnetic field, thereby producing a force vector between the LIM and the fin. This force vector provides thrust to move the train. Drive tires are propulsion units that are used when train movement and braking or holding is needed in low speed. All drive tires are capable of forward and reversing motion.
