Can anyone tell me how powered rails on dark rides work?
I recently rode Fantastic Journey at Wonderland Amusement Park in Texas, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me how the powered rails on that ride or similar rides work? Diagrams or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
Magnetically propelled cars have electromagnets on the floor along the car's path. The electromagnets are energized in sequence to attract steel plates attached to the undersides of the cars and achieve the desired speed. There may also be the aforementioned metal strips to provide electricity to the cars to operate lights.
* "Hot" and "neutral" respectively for alternating current.
