    One of the first looping rollercoasters I ever rode, the summer after third grade. I was EXACTLY the right height. When I rode, I got in the train car and then an attendant made me get out so they could measure me, and everyone in the train clapped when I turned out to be the right height

    Wow, I'm impressed that the camera made Viper look smooth! But really, this ride is a GEM! I think it's on its last legs though, and will be replaced in the next five years by maybe an S&S ride, which would be fitting, since they bought out Ron Toomer's Arrow Dynamics.

    My most anticipated coaster on my big west coast trip from the UK next year. I need to ride this so bad! I was so close in 2020..2021..2022. Still I am booked and I hope this classic holds on a little longer.

      As a veteran of this ride, I suggest to keep your head forward during the first loop.
      By the way, X² in pure insanity, and Tatsu's Pretzel Loop is incredibly fun (for me). Batman is an extremely intense ride. Have fun at Magic Mountain!

    I love how this one stands out as like the roughest ride at SFMM because it’s surrounded by better coasters!
    Meanwhile over at SFDL we have a similar, though smaller Viper, and it’s actually one of the better coasters there , just because there are so many worse coasters in that park 😂.

    I love this ride and I’m very glad Magic Mountain has maintained it rather than scrap it but I just wish they’d update the restraints and go with vest-like ones. It’d probably make this ride 1000 times better.

      Being tall enough to comfortably avoid headbanging, it's still an incredibly solid ride when that discomfort isn't a factor. New trains would definitely help improve the ride for most people, though.

    As a 90's kid, viper was THE coaster everyone was talking about. This coaster is legendary. As the last of the mega Loopers, I really hope that they refurbish it instead of removing it. Especially since the demon will almost certainly be headed to the scrap yard when great America closes 😥

    This ride deserves a complete retrack from vekoma. Keep this thing going as it's historic. A retrack would give it a smooth ride but a vintage feel either the shapes of the loops. It also seems smooth why nit get some new vekoma comfort collar trains for it? It would make it like a new ride

    Just rode it last week. Is it recommended to keep your head back against the headrest on this and X2 for a smoother experience? I kept my head forward, but it wasn’t that smooth. My head really got a walloping on the last raven turn on X2… not very fun!

    I'm surprised at how smooth the curve transitions are since it being a Arrow Dynamics custom looper. The majority of their coasters were rough in their banked curved transitions, causing side whiplashing.

    It will be a sad day when if this leaves the park, and considering Arrow Custom loopers are becoming harder to come by, I hope it gets sold instead to a smaller park like Silverwood or something. As much as most coaster fans like to rag on Arrow rides, they hold a special place in our hearts!
