V2: Vertical Velocity

The simple things in life are often the most satisfying. At first glance, you’ll think you have the minimalist masterpiece V2 all figured out. A clean, strong, U-shaped steel track spikes up in two impossibly high directions, one in an ultra-twisted inline curve, and the other - you guessed it - straight up. Sounds pretty simple right? Well strap into this completely original suspended swinging roller coaster with your feet hanging in the air and see what surprises this brute has in store.

Do you like your excitement served fast? You will bolt out of the station and get to 70 miles per hour in less than four seconds. Quick, count to four, and that’s how fast you’ll accelerate to top speed.

First you will blast forward onto the twisted tower spike. Then you’ll race backwards, back through the station on your way to the 150-foot-tall vertical tower. When you are barreling through the center at top speed and coming up that vertical, you’re moving so fast you basically feel like you are simply about to blast off into outer space. Take a half-breath before you plummet back down that 15 story drop. It’s like throwing a totally vertical free fall into the middle of a roller coaster.

How does V2: Vertical Velocity get you moving so fast from a total standstill? An unbelievably cutting edge, advanced electromagnet propulsion system does the trick. They call this a spiraling impulse coaster, and it’s the very first of its kind on the west coast. You’ll be appreciating this as you are sent barreling through the course again. How about three times?
