One of the largest looping roller coasters in the world. Viper has three vertical loops, a double barrel boomerang and a classic double that combined send Six Flags Magic Mountain guests upside down a total of seven times. Viper begins with a climb up a 17-story lift hill that leads to the first descent, a 188-foot drop that accelerates the train to a top speed of 73 mph!
