SFMW: coaster to high

Wednesday, May 29, 2002 3:50 PM

many of you have proably already heard this, but SFMW's Vertical Velicity coaster broke the citys hight limit. the limit is 150, and the coaster went 185. they ended up making the straight side shorter, and made the twist side at an angle, it looks rather strange now. I havent ridden it like this yet, it might turn out better, but i doubt it.

This is some REALLY old news. We have known about this for quite some time now.

Before attacking him note he says "Many of you have probably already heard this". Also take note that he is knew, therefore not informed on if there was a discussion on this.

Thats why you run a quick 30 second search. :) Always helps.

Not to be rude or anything, but here's the results for "V2 Modifications". http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forums/search.asp?search=V2+modifications&Mode=AND&Order=LastPostTime+DESC&ForumID=11

While the actual search itself may take a second, looking through 50+ pages isn't as easy. :)

I've tried doing searches also, they seem to work VERY inefficiently. They seem to use parts of words, or just single words and not a whole phrase together. I honestly have not been able to put them to use once. Maybe a little tweaking with that would improve the site alot...I think so.

It just depends on what it is you use search for. If you just type in "Magnum" or "V2" it's not exactly going to give you exactly the topic you're looking for.

For the record, Ozzyhead's search yields the result you want in the seventh topic.

SLUSHIE, some of us spend a lot of time here, (maybe TOO much time?) and get a little carried away with the news, tidbits, gossip, etc. of daily park life. Nobody meant any harm....except maybe for that one guy...;), j/k. Really, just relax and have a good time, you'll get the feel of the place in no time.....although I'll be (...noticeably...) absent for awhile.....

Personally, I think it ranks up there even better than Ghostrider's shed, in terms of creating a new and unique ride....complaints to the contrary, sorry - no pity here. The new "un-Vertical Velocity", or "V2.1" or whatever.....is gonnna be a great ride IMO....

Wouldn't it count as an inversion because if the spike is tilted like that wouldn't it be a zero g roll?
