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.

It was decent. - Andrew Dougherty

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. - Joey Till

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 - Bob Miller

We LOVE V2! The super-fast launch is incredible! The lines do get long quickly (limited loading capacity) so ride it early if you can. - Trisha Levine

I say perfection, but of course all of the coasters could be taller, at any park. But no ride is the same! - James Charmelo
