There are sixteen seats on this vehicle. Each of the two circles of riders is free-rotating, so the uneven loading of passengers causes the seats to spin around!

Linear synchronous motors use electricity to generate tremendous magnetic forces not only to propel the train in each direction, but also to slow the train at the end of the ride.
