# SFMW's V2 can claim a new Impulse record!

Wednesday, March 20, 2002 8:52 PM
Last season, I noticed that V2 stretched only to the point of Roar's first drop. With the ride being totally redesigned, the new V2 will stretch out all the way through the park's main entrance. It looks to me that SFMW's V2 can claim a new Impulse record for length. Do you agree?

I belive that honor will fall to WT as it has 130 more vertical feet of track. Remeber 35 feet of height was knocked off the vertical spike, the "un"vertical spike wouldnt be more then 300 feet long which it would have to be the longest impulse. Giving equal lengths of horizontal track WT will be 430+X ft long where x is the length of vertical track. The "un"v2 will be 150+Y+X feet in length, where Y would be the lenght of the "un"vertical spike and x once again the length of horizontal track. For "un"V2 to equal the length of WT the "un"vertical spike would have to be 380 feet long. I think this sounds right and at the slower speed "un"V2 will be launched at I don't think the track would be that long, but I may be wrong this is just my guess.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

Or the smallest angle of ascent... or the most re-designs...

Now that the twist is not vertical, will they claim that it has inversions???

The new V2 will probally have the shortest track length of any Impulse.
