My guess would be that it's a phenomenon called "coil whine". Read more at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coil_noise
But it's basically the LSM units themselves that vibrates due to the magnetic load they are experiences as the train goes by.

It's very similar to many electronic things today (computers, screens, chargers, etc) which can emit a high pitch noise when in use.

Official Helix POV!!
Embedded the video from above:


A couple of things that are noteworthy on that POV.

The perspective makes will make the ride look very different in reality, the camera is mounted at the level where you have your feet.
And it's running slow in that video, I reckon that it will have to speed up about 10 seconds on the coasting bit to live up to the calculations done for Helix.

So it will get even better :)

^What is interesting is that while most companies' LSMs make that noise, intamin's makes a completely different one. I wonder why that is.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

Different time of LSM units, the shape and thickens is very different so it will vibrate on a different frequency, hence the difference in sound.

Holy crap! Some of the transitions must be really intense! Looks like a top 10 material.

No way -- that looks insanely fast! And it looks like there's also a buttload of airtime in there, as well as some awesome positive Gs. Also love what looks like a slightly gliding feeling through the launches. Incredible. This looks like one absolutely fantastic coaster!
HA, I DON'T HAVE A SIG-wait, what?

^Great. It's always good when parks take time to shoot some testing POVs.
