The Flying Coaster

One of the most unique things about this roller coaster is the lifting system.  Cars are propelled around this spiral by the large beams shown in the center.  This structure in the middle continuously rotates.  When the train leaves the station, it is literally pushed up the lift by the rotating beams.
