Viper

A slithering serpent with serious bite!

Since it was built Viper has been one of the tallest and fastest looping roller coasters in the world. Just looking at Viper’s collection of loops from the ground will boggle the mind, but there’s only one way to truly appreciate the extreme intensity of a vertical loop, and that’s to ride it!

An enormous structure, made of red and white steel, this metal snake rises to 188 feet and slithers down the track at 70 miles per hour.  The first drop is a stomach-flipping 171 feet, but you are about to head into a series of insane loops—seven in all! It’s nearly non-stop loop action as you zing around in circles one after another. The tallest vertical loop you’ll face is 14 stories high. Your serpent-like green train whips its tail through the loopy course so fast you’ll forget which way is down.

Coiling track, corkscrews and zig zags connect you to the incredible boomerang (or “batwing”) loop, and by this time you should probably be getting comfortable with flying through the sky, upside down, at top speeds, like a giant snake … or maybe not.
