V2 Vertical Velocity Facts

Rule
Elements: LIM launch; Spiraling forward spike; Vertical rear spike

2002 - Modified to reduce the height of the rear spike to 150-feet and the front spiraling spike was completely rebuilt at a 45-degree angle that rises to a height of 150-feet. The modification was necessary since the original design violated the local zoning that prohibits structures taller than 150 feet.

Train has seven cars with one row each, seating two abreast per row.

Ride capacity: 900 passengers per hour
