Vertical Velocity @ SFGAM

Sunday, July 8, 2001 6:49 PM
I've been to SFGAM Twice this year, once in late May and once last Thursday and both times Vertical Velocity has been down almost as much as it's been open! Does anybody know what was wrong and if it is going to get any better?

It is a very complicated macine! Every inch of track has sensors on it, and it's brand new. Give it time, they will work the bugs out of the program that runs the thing. I think S:UE was down just as much when it first opened.

Last night they shut down the line and let everyone that was in line ride it and then they shut it down for maintenance. Everytime I've gone this year it's been down for part of the day. The thing I like most about this ride is the short waits for Batman The Ride. It was pretty crowded last night and waits were around 10 minutes for Batman.

Hurry up and open Delay-ja Vu!!

Yeah I went in late June and we got stuck twice on the ride, both because of malfunctions its just comes with how new the ride is I guess they have to work out the bugs.

Yeah, if you get in line for the ride prepare to be disappointed -- there's a good chance it's on the verge of shutting down any minute.

Get a fastlane pass. Any time it's operating, use the pass and ride it right away. Or, ride it 4 times right in a row, and then spend the rest of your day on the other rides. Another hint, ride in the 2nd to front car. There is usually less than a 2 or 3 train wait and it's almost as good as the front seat.

This way malfunctions, maintainence and long lines won't really matter.

Also - if it does break down while you are in line - be patient and wait a little bit (like 15 min or so). They usually get it going again pretty quickly, and a LOT of people will exit the line.

Yep, I used my fast pass on V2 and when I was next to ride it broke down. It was quite funny to see the shock on everyone's face in the station. When it broke down, we had to wait an extra 10-15 minutes while the took the train back to the station, test ride, and let the people ride again.

V2 at SFMW, well, when I went, V2 didn't brake down the whole day I was there. I don't see why V2 at SFGAm is having problems.
