The Steel Venom is a steel sit down LIM Impulse/Inverted roller coaster. It is 185' tall, 630' long. It was built by Intamin in 2003. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

THIS THING IS INSANE! It may not be a full rollercoaster but the count down 3..2..1... BLAHH the sound of a snake launching at you as you go 0-60 in seconds straight up 200 ft to a twist...then backwards and repeat the process. Its crazy because the second time you go backwards, it does this locking maneuver and will get you every time!

i give it a 8 for the park itself, its one of the better coasters at the park, very cool riding in the very front row, best seat in the entire ride. its not all that great though, and it seems to be going the way of the Boomerang - lots and lots of clones.

Another great impulse coaster. It truly is a mystery to me why there are not more of these rides. They are thrilling, marketable, relatively cheap, fit on a very small footprint, and for now would be very unique to the area. Again, the launch is great and the front seat is easily the best seat to experience this ride at its fullest.

APPEARANCE-8 Nice look but nothing to write home about. CAPACITY-7 They do a nice job but there is only so much you can do with this type ride. RIDE QUALITY-7 At least they didnt brake this ride, but all my rankings for these rides have went down since they are serious clones. FUN-8 I actually went front car for the first time so that helped. RERIDE-6 Same as my wild thing review there is not a lot of chance I will be back, but if I do this is probably their second best ride. OVERALL-36 AVG-7.2 I prefer it to Wicked Twister but it was still a seven if I wasnt in front.

This was my very first impulse coaster and I couldnt wait to get on it. The launch is one of the best parts of the ride and its fun to hear everyone screaming. The twist up the first tower is great (not as good as wicked twister) and provides a great view. The back tower makes you feel waitless and the second time you go up it and it stops you is the the only true scary part of the ride. Overall it is a fun ride and a great edition for valleyfair.

Fantastic ride. A 9 overall but a 10 if you get the front seat as the view is breathtaking. Provides a great thrill but would be better if they didnt countdown so they could catch you off guard but hey. Still a great ride.

I really enjoy impulse "spike" coasters. I prefer that both spikes have spirals but Steel Venom is still fun with a holding brake on the straight spike. However, on the straight spike the brakes didnt hold the coaster as long as SFGAm and I rode in the front expressly for this purpose.

Wildiest thing in the park since it isnt tamed down like High Roller and Wild Thing. Back seat was the best especially on the spike with the holding brake.
