This is my favorite ride here at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, I thought the launch was quite intense and you get really good hanging on the first and last twisting spike is awesome and you get a really good whip on the full twist. V2 Vertical Velocity is the best ride here in my opinion.

I give it a plus for being different than the other Intamin impulse coasters. I quite frankly enjoyed the combination of the spiral non-spike that left you hanging upside down (better in the front of train) along with the vertical spike. A plus for variety.

V2 is a very strange ride. The launch up the first spike is underwhelming, and the second altered spike is just plain bizarre. The hanging sensation isnt all that great either. Even though I have alot of negative things to say about this ride, I still enjoyed it. I thought it was entertaining, and quite fun. Strange.

I enjoyed this ride, and when I went to SFMW for the first time, I went with a friend who had motion sickness, but he didnt get it on this ride. And that doesnt mean that this is a bad ride, it is just really smooth. Plus, it has a huge reride factor, I think we rode the ride at least 5 times that day.

Wow, my first Intamin spiral impulse coaster, and what a fun experience at that. The launch was very fun, and the forward tower was an extremely unique experience. I havent been on the vertical spiraling impulse coasters yet, so I cant compare them, but I thought the corkscrew-looking twist while at about a 45-degree angle was incredibly entertaining. During the first pass the coaster only makes it to about mid-way through the spiral, so if you are in one of the middle seats you get a neat, sort of hanging upside-down sensation. The second pass continues all the way through this element, so you get a good flip both forward and backward. There is yet a third and final shot forward that also goes about as far as the first did, once again suspending many riders in a rather unusual position. And lets not forget the back tower. This was straight up and down. Unlike some impulse coasters where I know there is a brief moment when the brakes grab the train to a stop, this one didnt have that, but I dont care. What a perfect sensation of going straight up backwards and straight down forwards. Much like the Deja Vu coasters, this, to me, is one of the greatest feelings a coaster can provide. I think V2 Vertical Velocity is a real winner!

the launch sucks, but the rest of the ride is pretty fun, some REALLY intense hang time.

So much fun. Id give it a ten if the line didnt take so long.

SUPER RIDE! the lack of vertical-ness just sets it apart from the others!

I rode the modified version, and after riding Wicked Twister, I liked this better. I liked hanging upside down. The best place to sit if you want the maximum amount of hang time is about the 4th row from the front.
