Saturday, December 14, 2002 2:09 PM

My friend asked me why the the SFMW V2 is diffrent than the one at SFGAm.And I couldnt answer cause I dont know the answer. Why is one Spike vertical and one is at like 45 degree angle? It is really annoing me. So if you know the answer please tell me.

It was originally the same as the other V2, but a height restriction caused it to be changed. Hope I helped.

It was built to 185' (as S:UE and GRAm. are) but was only zoned for 150' Last summer they tilted the front spike and dropped the back by one section.

Is V2 at MW better than the regular impulses?

I think it has been castrated. V2 was never a popular ride at Marine World. And it has even less ridership now. It feels slower, which is understandable since the back spkie is shortened. The launch up the incline is not too thrilling either.

I personally loved the new V2 and enjoyed it much more than the original. The new version is really intense as to where I thought the original wasn't that amazing.

I agree... I love the slow, creepy crawl to the end on the front "spike." It really feels as though you will drop over the end... Very cool, and the ride isn't slower, regardless of the height. They just don't fire the LIMs as long.

So, with the new angle on it, would it technically have an inversion? Since it appears the riders do a complete inversion. But, [url="http://www.rcdb.com/" target="_blank">RCDB has it listed as 0 inversions.

But either way the shaking of the Vertical Spike makes many riders turn away

Funny that the shaking is what attracts riders to the one at SFGAm.
