Moto Coaster

A large spinning flywheel is used to accelerate the train from a stop to up to 38 miles per hour in just three seconds.  A clutch transfers the momentum from the spinning wheel to the large drum attached to a cable system.  The launching machinery sits behind these two chain-link fences.
