Adventure Drive

This is the location of the coaster's second launch.  The car is brought to a halt here.  As the lighted ring below the "Danger" sign changes colors, riders are instructed to yell "Power" to increase the launch's speed.  A cable pulls the car forward for the launch, but the car doesn't travel quickly.  I would estimate that the launch only gets up to about 35 kilometers per hour, or just a little above 20 miles per hour.  I observed empty trains as well as full trains that shouted "Power," but I could not discern any difference in the launches.  Sorry to be a spoiler, but if the shouting really makes a difference, it is pretty subtle.
