Adventure Drive

The park's description of this coaster stated that the louder riders shouted, the faster Adventure Drive's launches would be.  A voice-activated coaster is a great gag and a good way to get people excited about the ride.  However, I must admit that I don't think that the volume of screams did anything to the velocity of the launches.  As you can tell from these pictures, it was raining pretty heavily when I visited Suzuka Circuit, so I got to see empty cars dispatched as well as lots of ride vehicles with only one or two passengers.  As far as I could tell, the empty cars and the ones with quiet passengers all left the loading platform with the same speed and acceleration as the cars with screaming passengers.
