Can the trains of Vertical Velocity reach its 150

Tuesday, February 20, 2001 3:06 PM
I believe that the trains of Vertical Velocity will reach its 150 foot towers. Why? Because its base length is 330 ft. long compared to Superman: Ultimate Escape, which base length is only 210 ft. long. Vertical Velocity's 330 ft. base length is enough for the trains to go to the top of its 150 ft. towers while reaching a top speed of 70 m.p.h.

If it is truly like Superman: Ultimate Escapre then it will go forward, backward, forward again (this time hitting optimal speed) then back (stopping on the reverse vertical spire), then forward again, and finally back into the station.

While VV might ahve a base of 330', does it have LIM's running the entire length? The base could be longer than SUE but have a shorter launch run.

i think it will be a combination of a longer base and shorter but more powerful LIMs.

I'm hoping that they don't add brakes or something right before you go up the tower. BY the way, does anyone know for sure when SFMW's 150ft. height limit will be taken off

the height limit will most likely be taken off in 2002 when SFMW buys the land and the fairgrounds from the city of vallejo. then we expect them to raise it to well over 200'.
