I agree they arent comparable but from reading some reports on V2 and some trip reports people were saying its now in there top 5 coasters and how great it was. I liked the ride but love Raging Bull and also doesnt believe it compares so i was wondering what other people thought about it, in a article in the daily hearld some guy rode it 51 times and even though its a excellant ride i coulndt see riding it that many times.
Now don't get pissed off at me for saying this, but I think V2 is a bigger rush than the bull. I still like the bull more, but I'd wait just as long for V2. Both are VERY different, and both deserve recognition.
Seeing that I was on Raging Bull earlier this year and I've ridden SUE here at SFWoA, I think that overall, Raging Bull is a great coaster, but the expirience one gets from SUE/V2 is unrivaled, so I happen to like SUE/V2 better.
I like Raging Bull better because it is longer and has more twists and turns, while V2 just goes forward and backward. Then again, V2 has the launch and is such a rush. ------------- Bull rides:41 Batman rides:33
Raging Bull without a doubt in my mind. The coaster gets to a top speed of 73 miles per hour and goes over many hills, twists and turns to expend its energy. During this time I feel both strong positive and negative g-forces.
On v2 I feel short changed, I guess. You get launched stopped (ala trim brake), launched, stopped and never get to use the full potential of the LIM launch. It's not a bad coaster, it's probably my third favorite steel in the park (behind Bull and Batman), at least until Deja Vu opens.

Even though I have never rode Raging Bull or V2, I have rode coaster similar to it. V2=Superman:UE and Raging Bull=Batman:KF, and I would have to say that it is a close call between them two! ------------- Brett Home Park: Six Flags Worlds of Adventure! Happy Riding!

V2 is the bigger rush, and those vertical drops are amazing. The weightlessness you feel on the ride is astounding, and the brakes on the vertical tower are devilish. "
You hit that right on the money. No, matter how much ilove bull and it's speed, i have to give the award to v2. It has no dead spots, it is so insane and i love it every time. I rode SUE 11 times in a row and i had totally forgotten how much i loved that ride until i rode V2 yesterday. The long line was definatley worth it. And for the people who don't like V2 just thank it for taking the pressure of Bull, yesterday, while the line for V2 was an hour, the bull was ten min. I would be thanking it. Too bad i can't stay away from V2!!!!! Neil, "Boy Genius, Hope of Mankind" http://kmlaser81.tripod.com/RockinCoasterSite/
