"Catapult Launch"

This is when coaster train is launched to give it speed rather than using a lift hill and gravity. It's connected to the train and accelerates it by using either a flywheel or weight drop. As of recently, compressed-air (Thrust Air), Linear Synchronous Motors (LSM's) and Linear Induction Motors (LIM's) are other methods.
