V2: Vertical Velocity

V2: Vertical Velocity

Unreal Acceleration from 0-60 Delivers an Assault on Your Senses.

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?

Deep beneath V2: Vertical Velocity is a secret laboratory. In this secret laboratory, mad scientists create new roller coasters and other attractions using toothpick models and thousands of timid white mice. Until recently these mice have enjoyed their role in growing theme park technology — most of the advancements that have taken place over the last 20 years are due to their effort. However, things changed just last week after an experiment involving some sponge cake and a frialator went horribly, horribly wrong. One by one mice disappeared from their cages. The locks on the cages appeared to have been gnawed through from the outside. Tiny little teeth marks. It’s as if these useful, but simple, creatures have joined together to free each other. Now growing bands of rodents crawl through the vents, emerging at night below the tracks of SUF. They roam the queuing areas in search of unsuspecting individuals…seeking to satiate their unquenchable taste for human flesh. Once their prey is cornered, defense is hopeless, they flow over the victim’s body and begin to feed. Screams don’t deter them–it just makes them angrier. Blood only increases their ferocity. Bones are picked clean and, in an instant, keen, high-pitched rat cries pierce the night’s cover. No V2: Vertical Velocity ride vehicle is safe. Red cars are especially vulnerable. Noise and smell attract these former scientific “sacrifices” to their potential prey. Speed, height, and constant movement are the only methods of avoidance. If one rat is spotted, the other thousand are sure to be right behind. Minimum height: 55″; maximum 75″
