Strap in and get ready to fly! V-2, Vertical Velocity is a suspended spiraling impulse coaster. Launched by an advance-design electromagnetic propulsion system. Riders rocket out of the station at 70 mph in less than 4 seconds. You get shot up a spiraling track only to let you fall back down and be reshot up a straight line of track backwards for a total of 3 forward sprials and 2 backward straights.
I like the Twisted Impulse coasters, and Vertical Velocity actually ended up being the first standard model I've tried. While I didn't enjoy it as much as Wicked Twister, it was still a very fun ride. Like others of this type, the ride is extremely short but is more intense than you'd expect by looking at it.
It was decent.
v2 is a very fun, faced paced coaster that is always busy becasue it can only run one train. If you could choose a ride that is just plain fun, Vertical Velocity would be it.
V2 is a great ride. Fun any row you ride it in. Ride in the back to go futher up the back spike. Ride in the front to have a clear view and go up the highest on the other spike. One bad thing about this ride is that it has a slow loading capacity. Whereas on Raging Bull a station wait would probabaly be a <5 minute wait with V2 you could me looking at a 15-20 minute wait
