Which do you like better? Raging Bull or V2

Saturday, May 26, 2001 5:41 PM
Now that some of us have ridden V2 which coaster do you think is better, V2 or Raging Bull. I like both rides but think Raging Bull is alot of a better ride/coaster experience, whats your opinion?

Bull, easily. I don't see how anyone could say V2.

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.

Raging Bull is clearly better. But V2 is pretty close.

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 don't mean to be mean people, but this is a classic case of Apples to Oranges. RB is a continuous-circuit twister and V2 is a shuttle...either way V² is much better...the launch....::drool::

I am a huge RB fan, but, yes, I have to do it...

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.

I like them both and they are my 2 favorite coasters in the park, but Bull is better, IMO.

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.

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.

Well this might seem strange, but after I rode V2 2 times, the bull seemed to be a little tamed. I was sitting near the back too. ;)

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!

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!!!!!

I would have to say RB...Because I can't fit in the &$*^$*&$ing restraintson V2.

I can ride every other ride at SFGAm (in fact every other park I have been at) but I could not get the stinking seatbelt to latch.
