This is the funnest and scariest ride! Esspecially the very front or very back.

Impressive forward twist, but the awkwardly creepy hangtime on the back spike brake was the highlight. The launches either way were particularly thrilling and the location really does a lot for it I think. I really hope Intamin can do even more with these rides and that more and more parks will have them since they take up little space, have a decent capacity, and give some unique varitions of forces not felt through many other coasters Ive experienced. Like several rides at Great America, the lines are pretty long, but this is worth it so dont skip it for any wait under an hour and a half or so.

The launch is the best and the holding brake at the second tower.

Great Ride, in fact this is the best ride in the park. The launch is great and the backward acceleration is even better. I also like the pause on the backward spike. It is in my top ten for now but may be replaced by Wicked Twister when I ride it in a couple of weeks.

I like longer rides, but this is still great. The second spiral up is the best part.

Intamin IMpulses have to be one of the best creations of the past several years. Killer zero to seventy launch! I like the front better because of the twisted spike.

What a great launch! Words cant even describe the feeling of hanging on the back spike.! The launch! The launch!

Awesome ride, and a great rush the first few times you ride it. It loses a little bit over time, but the freefall on the back spike is amazing.

Great ride. This ride has a better location that S:UE, however, I did not know there was a brake on S:UE. I did on this one. They are the same exact ride, but I like S:UE a little bit better. Why? Wait Time: S:UE-5 minutes, V2-90 minutes. I gave it the same rating though.
