A linear induction motor launch coaster, Backlot Stunt Coaster is themed after the chase scene at the end of the film Italian Job.  The train consists of three cars, each seating four riders, two across, that look like exactly that – cars.   From the station the train is launched in 3 seconds from 0 to 40 mph and enters a right upward helix before dropping, veering right and going through several mainly left-banked turns.  While this is happening, it passes police cars and highway signs.  It comes to a stop and there is a second launch into a tunnel.  In total darkness the train twists around several times before emerging into daylight, banking left and heading back to the station.   As originally designed by Premier Rides, the coaster featured numerous special effects but most of these have been removed.  I actually rode this coaster by accident, thinking that I had entered the queue for a completely different coaster, but found the ride to be highly entertaining.  Backlot Stunt Coaster gets 3 out of 5 stars.  Photo courtesy of Canada’s Wonderland.
