After leaving the station, the trains slowly descend while making a turn to the left and then a turn to the right.   The trains then encounter this track leading into the show building.  Linear Synchronous Motors (LSMs) accelerate the trains forward as they climb this track.

The LSMs require a lot of electricity.  Some of the electrical cables, and the fans required to cool the LSMs, are visible below this track.
