One of the largest looping roller coasters in the world. Viper begins with slow ascent up the 18-story tall lift hill. Reaching the apex the train begins the first drop, a 171-foot direction changing descent, with gravity pulling the trains to a top speed of 73 miles-per-hour. What immediately follows is a giant vertical loop, once the world's tallest, followed by consecutive vertical loops, a double inverting boomerang, and finally back-to-back corkscrew inversions before returning to the station. Tallying all those up Viper sends Six Flags Magic Mountain guests upside down a total of seven times!
