I got one word for this ride... OUCH! This is officially the worst coaster I have ever been on. Its really a great idea but very poor execution. The restraint system on the trains is really nice but the layout makes it painful. The heartline roll was near perfect but the rest of the ride is what makes it such a low rating. Worst part is that turn before hitting the brakes.

Ok, the Viper isnt a bad ride. It does hurt, it is short, but the inversions and the drop are totally sweet. First off I like the restaints, they give you more freedom but the harness has absolutely no padding, and for this bumpy ride...wow it hurts. Its one of the few that makes my stomach drop (not even Nitro makes my stomach drop) The first inversion, the inverted dive is one of the best inversions ever! You practicaly stop upsidedown before diving down. So what you might ask, well the harnesses that slide up and down the seat have just a bit of slack, so you rise off your seat (even though the lapbar is there you still rise up a bit) that is scary but awesome! Next is the heartline which makes you rise off your seat again cuz you dont go up and then twist, its like flat. After that come the 2 underbanked turns that hurt and then the huge station. Togo made an ok ride, but i can see why you dont see many Togos around.

PS: Gotta love the cars too!

This a nice ride, one of the better ones in the park. I like the first drop and the heartline roll is simply amazing! And, by the way, follow B&MRiders advice. Simply ride in the front row with the shoulder restraints down tight and youll get a smooth ride. I loved it!

I work at sfgadv and everyone keeps saying if only it wasnt so short and painful. i dont find it painful at all. AND A LOT OF PEOPLE DONT KNOW VIPER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE 3000 FT LONG SOMETHING LIKE MANHATTAN EXPRESS AT THE NY NY HOTEL IN LAS VEGAS BUT THERE WAS PROBLEMS WITH SPACE AND TIME SO THEY SHORTENED IT AT THE LAST MINUTE BASICALLY ITS A CUSTOM DESIGN PUT TOGETHER REAL QUICK JUST TO FIT THE SMALL SPACE THE OTHER 2000 FT OF TRACK HAS BEEN SITTING IN THE WAREHOUSE I SEE IT EVERYTIME I GO TO WORK. BUT NE WAY ITS NOT THAT BAD OF A RIDE IT HAS NICE THEMEING NICE TRAINS A NICE FIRST DROP AND I LOVE THE PART WHEN YOU HANG UPSIDE DOWN. I WOULD HATE TO SEE IT GO NEXT YEAR

I rode this ride 2 years ago. Didnt like it then, Dont like it now. I went to SFGADV a few days ago, my 2nd time. I didnt even bother to ride because of all the stories I heard on how bad the ride is and from my past experience on this horrid ride.The headbanging goes beyond the word painful. If I want pain, Ill stick to backyard wrestling. Forget this ride. It gets a 1 for "Attempted themeing", otherwise it would get a zero.

I give this ride a 2 for being so damn short, I couldnt take the pain much longer. Thank you Six Flags for atleast not making this nightmare so long!
