Hence, the name Spiraling Impulse Coaster. Screaming Condor which opened in 2001 at Leofoo Village, Taiwan is another Intamin AG spiraling impulse coaster I had just ridden two days ago. I am visiting Taiwan right now and am typing on a computer from Taiwan (duh). Even I had no idea this impulse coaster existed. It's exactly like your typical spiraling impulse. The front spike that is twisted and the back spike vertical. Very fun. The only thing is that Screaming Condor doesn't have a holding brake on the vertical spike. And the ride's station is subterranean, just like SFMW's V2 Vertical Velocity if I'm correct.

Dude Vertical Velocity blew me away too! I was hoping that Deja Vu would be open for our class trip and I was disappointed that only Vertical Velocity was. But after riding it I'd prefer it way over a inverted vekoma boomerang. When I rode it, it was my new favorite coaster! But that spot was soon lost when I rode Apollo's Chariot! But that's another story! V2 beats Raging Bull anyday!
