Viper was a Steel Sit-Down Roller Coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure, Jackson, New Jersey, USA. It was the first roller coaster to ever include a Barrel Roll. It was closed in 2004 demolished in 2005 for many reasons. The station building was reused by El Toro.

DesignEdit

Elements

Dive Loop
Heartline Roll

Many would say that Viper provided a painful ride and that it was badly designed. Viper had coiled metal around the majority of the track.

TrainsEdit

The trains resembled a snake and were colored light-green and orange. 3 trains with 4 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 16 riders per train or 1600 riders per hour.

HistoryEdit

  • In 1990, the park had 5 roller coasters, however this had been reduced to 3 by the end of 1992 due to ride rotation program's. The opening of Batman The Ride in 1993 brought this up to 4. Due to the Ultra Twister being fairly popular, it was decided that TOGO would design and manufacture a similar ride for the spot wich Ultra Twister once stood on.
  • Construction started in the fall of 1994 and, after many delays, Viper finally opened in June 1995. Initially, lines were long, but due to rough restraints, popuality had faded by 1997.
  • In 1998, Viper barely operated as spare parts were hard to obtain due to TOGO going bankrupt. In 2001, Viper never operated and was considered SBNO. It wasn't listed on any 2001 park guides or maps. Six Flags planned to remove Viper but this was cancelled as a replacement ride was never found.
  • In 2002, Viper reopened after some modifications on the track and trains. The ride was still rough and only 1 train was running. On Labor Day 2004, the ride closed forever.
  • In 2005, Viper was demolished. This was due to many reasons like the fading popularity and large down-times. *The station building was reused for El Toro and the rest of the ride was scrapped.
