I have percieved that all LIM Shuttle coasters (Premeir Rides) in which are produced and constructed by Six Flags Theme Parks Inc. have a theme of condensation of molecules (or in Laymen's terms Coldness). Has anybody else preformed this observation.

In your attempt to use a lot of big words and sound intelligent you've managed to lose all sight of grammar. What the heck are you asking?

What do you mean by attempt Jeff? :)
I'm trying to say that I've noticed that all of the Premire Rides that are LIM shuttles have a cold theme.

I think the theming has more to do with the purchaser than the manufacturer. Rides can be themed just about any way the buyer wants them to be.The way the coaster is launched has little if anything to do with this.

Well, Superman: Ultimate Escape is a LIM shuttle coaster, even though it is not built by Premier, and Superman: The Escape is also a magnetically launched shuttle coaster, again not built by Premier and also an LSM coaster.
The two Mr. Freeze coasters and Batman and Robin: The Chiller are the only Premier LIM shuttles(I think), and they were all built around the time of the movie Batman and Robin, of which the major villain was(big surprise): Mr. Freeze. At that time, Six Flags seemed to be REALLY intent on superhero rides(even moreso than today), so it is more of a timing thing.
So, to sum up....
The Premier technology was at a high point in its novelty at the same time that "Batman and Robin" came out, which was at the same time that Six Flags was looking to pour some $$$$ into coasters at some established parks.
