Great ride, lots of loops and pretty tall. No headbanging when i went on it. Just in case keep your head back. Dont miss this.

Pretty rough ride, but the height and the inversions still make it a cool ride

Another of Magic Mountains many signature coasters, its hard to believe this thing is 15 years old. I remember being scared to death when I first rode it as a kid, and its still pretty scary today. I like to ride in the back so I get yanked off of the lift hill into the first drop. There are three consecutive vertical loops (which is awesome--you never see that anymore these days) before entering the mid-course brakes. You finish with a boomerang and double corkscrew. This is definitely a rough ride by todays standards (as are pretty much all Arrow coasters that were built during that time), but I still enjoy it, even after all these years.

like GASM @ SFGAdv and Ninja @ SFoG,it was an innovative coaster with a lot of inversions, however its not worth the pain today with other smoother coasters around

This ride is SICK! I love Viper. For me (since im 6 feet tall), I have a wicked smooth ride. The only bumps I feel when i ride are right before the corkscrews and right after the first loop. There is also never a line for it! This is a definate ride you must hit! It is my favorite at the mountain.

One of my very favorites from the past, but this week Viper felt much rougher than my previous experiences (10 years ago). A lot of head-banging going on, and it left me teetering when we exited. After riding the fantastic "X" first that day with no ill effects whatsoever, I was surprised that this old fave knocked me for a loop. (Just not as young as I used to be, I guess!) :-)

OW OW OW! Viper is one of the most painful rides created. Heading into the loop will kill you, the double loop will double kill you, but the boomerang is smooth. Heading into the double corkscrew will triple kill you. You want proof? My 11 year old cousin Zach wore pillows over his ears so they wouldnt get banged, and on the double corkscrew, the pillows busted open. Anyway, for the good part of is the highest complete-circuit steel lift hill roller coaster that does a loop. At 68 miles per hour, you have a lot of airtime on the first drop (for OTSR, even though its a horsecollar). The only disadvantage is that in California, in January (I went up to California 12/31/03, came back on a redeye flight on the morning of 1/5/04), your hands feel like theyre frozen to the handles. For some reason, our second ride was more painful on the corkscrew then the first ride. A LOT rougher. But when Vipers running good, the forces on the corkscrew are incredible. You are really shifting around, going from the right to the left on them. Viper is a painful but fun experience, unlike Manhattan Express at NYNY and Ninja at SFOG.
