Bacause V2 at SFGAm is an exact clone of V2 at SFMW! You don't need it. If you have seen a video of S:UE, you have seen one for all second generation impulse coasters!
Anyways, that is a prety nice video, but I noticed that it doesn't grap you on the back spike for the same amount of ime tha S:UE does. S:UE holds you for a while...V2 looks like you are held for not even a second!
Gone, a sense of confidence, I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take! - Linkin Park, Crawling KoЯn still Яules!

The holding LIM on SFMW's V2 is actually out of commission right now. Something about it overeheating to much.. Hopefully they'll have it up and working again soon. I worked for the first weekend it was open, then it was gone after that.

The only bad thing is, if you sit in the back, you don't get the spinning part of the ride.

Sweet video. Too bad I'll never get to ride it in the near future.

When I rode V2 at SFGam a week or two ago, the pause in the vertical section was much longer than the example in that video. I know that's a different ride at a different park, but it's still a V2.
