La Vibora is Spanish for "The Viper" and one of the more unique rides at Six Flags Over Texas. Unlike traditional roller coasters, La Vibora does not run on rails, but instead, the vehicles travel through a U-shaped trough that resembles a winding bobsled course. Up to 6 riders are seated inline in individual cars that remarkably look like a bobsled. The coaster was originally called the Avalanche Bobsled but was renamed to better fit the Spain section of the park. Before operating at Over Texas the roller coaster made its debut at Six Flags Magic Mountain as the Sarajevo Bobsleds for the 1984 summer Olympic Games.
