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 MINI Cooper S for a multi-sensory stunt car adventure, and as the custom stunt car MINIs 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.

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. There are three separate launch zones on the Backlot Stunt Coaster.
