No offense, but that looks pretty boring, especially compared with V2, and we already have our wing coaster with X-Flight, which I would always choose over this. This ride would seem best for a smaller park with a smaller budget and not a lot of space for bigger coasters. If V2 goes, we really need a full circuit launched coaster to replace it.

No offense taken. It looks similar to a Skyrocket II, but with better capacity. The park now has two wing coasters with The Joker.

I actually like the concept, it's kind of like if a Superloop had winged trains. Good to see S&S really putting themselves out there.

ilrider is right though, that it'd be redundant with 2 wing coasters (X-Flight and The Joker) already in our line-up. If we were too get a Full-Throttle like LSM launch coaster, V2's spot along with one of the flumes would be a prime location. I know alot of people say "Remove both or none", but the other could easily be modified. (Pretty sure that happened at CGA)

Yeah, I already forgot about the Joker. lol Two wing coasters is enough. If V2 goes, I want something big in its place, is all, with all the potential space in that area. And I'm a guy who does not even ride V2 all that much. The Skyrocket II is a really cool design, but I agree the capacity is too low.

I like the ideas S&S has (Which look very similar to Mack launch coaster ideas) but I don't like the OTSR's. I had a horrible ride on Steel Hawg cause of their restraints.

^They just used the Euro-Fighter model from No Limits 2. They now use vest restraints:

If they happened to remove V2 this year, I'd be willing to bet the replacement will not be a "coaster" per say

Hope it's a Zamperla Giant Discovery & Maybe an Endeavor to replace Revolution

I'd take either over what SF bought at IAAPA that takes up an almost identical space as an Impulse coaster

I'm assuming he's talking about a Mack Powersplash

But I wanna see proof ;)

I doubt that is what he is referring to. A Mack PowerSplash is about 529 ft long and V2 is about 342 ft long. That doesn't fit the description of "almost identical space". The Mack Xtreme Spinning Coaster Compact Layout is about 230 ft long and would fit, but it doesn't use the whole space. A Zamperla Disk'O Coaster would be 267.5 ft long.

None of those as far as I know, Wish it was something decent. I'll just say I'd rather see V2 stay despite the fact I haven't ridden it in over a decade
