This skyrocketing, super-coaster at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom launches dangling riders at face-flattening speeds up and back down two vertical inclines, the first a twisting spiral ascends at a 45-degree angle and the opposite a vertical 90-degree spike rises straight up 15 stories. V2 Vertical Velocity is unique since the forward and rear vertical spikes had to be modified after the first season, so now this Impulse shuttle coaster has a one-of-a-kind layout that can only be experienced at this park.

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.
Opening date: June 22, 2002
Train has seven cars with one row each, seating two abreast per row.
