    Who cares if it's short? V: Vertical Velocity packs all that punch in the ride. I love it! It's really intense and really fast! Overall, it's an incredibly unique and awesome coaster.

    I have yet to ride Vyet, but i have rode S:UE and it was awesome. One of the best coasters that I have ridden. And it seems that if you take any other coaster's lift out, that S:UE would be as long as any other coaster

    V2 is a little short, but it's still very good.

    Not much of a choice, but I haven't ridden it. By the looks, it looks pretty cool. Doesn't really matter if it's short, as long as it's fun.

    It would have been better with the hold, but it was still good. It is short but I think that's the point: To be short and still pack a punch.

    Well I've never been on a V2, but I've been on Superman: Ultimate Escape. S:UE was awesome. It is one of my top 6 coasters, notice I said 6, it is 6th.

    any coaster thats as short as an impulse isnt worth a 2 hour + wait, even though the launch is very fast and exciting. But Volcano for instance far out classes V2 because it does inversions, has multiple launches that can be noticed, and obviously is way longer. Maybe its because of construction costs and energy usage, but i wonder why more parks didnt spring for a coaster like volcano. Just think of the possibilities of theming which volcano has well demonstrated.

    I really enjoyed V2, and it is great, even though it is on the short side. It still really is very exciting. One of the best IMO.
