    Inversions Intensity Duration Headbanging Theming Discomfort

    Overall my number 1 rollercoaster. This ride is unbelievably intense, and is often criticised because of its roughness. I used to hate it. Now i love it. First off, before the refurbishment, it was significantly rougher, now, glossy smooth, and all you have to do is keep your head forward on every moment but the first 3 vertical loops. Overall one of the most underrated rollercoasters in america.

    This ride is great if you're a fan of concussions

    Fun

    I remember this ride being very unpopular on the day I visited. I had Bronze flash pass, and I was able to get on this ride three or four times before my queue for the flash pass (for X2) finished. I honestly don't remember this ride much, but it's definitely a great filler coaster and was super fun. I am used to my rattly vekoma's here in the Netherlands so I don't quite think of rattles when thinking of this coaster. It was just fun in it's own perspective and I would definitely recommend to ride it if you have a bronze flash pass and need some time to kill.

    Layout Duration

    Very big looper with a solid selection of elements and a good length. Overall was smooth but had a few moments that were definitely janky. Good ride overall but still had some discomfort.

    First Drop Headbanging Discomfort Tear it down!

    I’m sure this ride used to be good back then, but today it’s something that just needs to go. Not only do my ears scream in pain from the head banging against the over-head restraints, but my neck feels like it will pop out of my spine during each loop and inversion. While I like how the layout looks from afar, those loops are too small at the top and jolt your body around excessively. If you decide to ride this, bring Tylenol and make it your last ride of the day. If you don’t, you won’t want to do anything else for the remainder of your time there. Tear Viper down!

    I've only ridden it once and while it was rough I still loved it. It feels quite unique these days.

    Headbanging Discomfort Tear it down!

    The whole time I was on this ride I was yelling in pain. It was not enjoyable and I had to go to take tylenol afterwards. My neck was forced downward a few times during the ride and I felt like my spine was at risk. This coaster was not smooth at all and resulted in my head banging back and forth between the harness.The results do not get any better... I have been stuck in bed most of the day and the cartilage on my right ear is bruised, which I didn't know was possible until the Viper!! Do not recommend and does not seem safe for smaller children.

    Layout Rattle Headbanging

    I'm sure this was a great ride back in 1990, but it's not the best now. There are some good aspects to this ride, such as the height and interesting layout. The first drop is pretty good and the best of any arrow looper I've ridden. The first section with the vertical loops is pretty intense and not too rattly, but then the second half is worse. The batwing is quite uncomfortable, as well as the transitions in and out of the corkscrews. I would not be sad if they replaced this with a new large-scale coaster.

    The coaster might have some rough transitions and 2 dead spots (strong mid course break, straight track near the end) but its one hell lot of fun to ride. It has a weird, unique layout and some cool intense inversions, like the batwing. The ride is also pretty long and smooth for an old Arrow. The seating was ok, not too uncomfortable. Thrill: 3.75/5

    Inversions Fun Layout Headbanging

    Viper is one of my favorite Arrows. Though a bit rough, it has a long layout, a good location, and fun inversions, and a helix at the end. I remember being pleasantly surprised.

    Inversions Nice surprise! Hangtime Dead spots

    Viper is a fantastic coaster. Every single inversion is amazing. I had no headbanging whatsoever. I found it, while not perfectly smooth, to be running far smoother than most other Arrow coasters I've ridden. Viper was the surprise standout of my trip to Six Flags Magic Mountain. Absolutely criminally underrated ride.

    幼少期に乗ったのですが、常に耳にハーネスが当たり続けました。脳に深刻なダメージが残り、ダメな大人になりました。両親は訴訟を検討しています。

    I'm sure that this coaster was amazing for it's time, but this one just ain't it chief. It beat the ever living soul out of me.

    Inversions Fun Intensity Headbanging

    Yea, this ride can beat the shit out of you if you're not braced for it; but the sheer intensity and adrenaline pumping experience this ride provides cannot be overstated. Add the fact that there's almost never a line for this thing because of its reputation and somewhat secluded location, and you have the potential for some truly crazy ride counts even when the other rides may be swamped. Respect the ride, and it shall provide.

    I love the Viper roller coaster and it’s the best roller coaster I went on. It’s a lot of fun and I like the roller coaster trains. Viper roller coaster is my number one favorite roller coaster and I look forward riding it again.

    Inversions Headbanging Discomfort Tear it down!

    These coasters were a big deal when they came out because of their size and long list of inversions. I handle rough rides very well, but this thing made me sick with all the headbanging. SF Great America tore theirs down (Shockwave) and replaced it with Superman: Ultimate Flight. I expect SFMM should and will do the same in the near future.
