Other V2's have a holding brake on the rear spike that holds the train there a few seconds. SFMW's V2 has a holding brake there but it is not used. Does anybody know why? Going up that tower then stopping briefly at the top sounds like it would be pretty cool. Was it used before the height was modified? Are they not able to use it due to the modified version of this ride or is it because they just don't use it?
It seems to me that there really is no reason they couldn't do that, but maybe someone else knows for sure.
It used to stop on the back spike, but doesn't anymore. I would think that it's because they had to take 30-some feet off of the track, so now when it goes on the back spike, the front couple of rows don't even go completely verticle.
I'm personally glad it doesn't stop because when I rode Steel Venom and it stopped...well it hurt!
