Hope they can restore the ride to how it originally is supposed to be run like its sister, Insane at Gröna Lund.

On a side note, is it me or is Vipère a bit of a weird name for this ride? Literally meaning "Viper" in French, this is supposedly themed after a venomous snake. The name would have been more fitting for a coaster with a longer train to be honest.

Perfect ride for La Ronde though.

If they let the seats actually flip, this could be a great ride.

Wasn't the problem with Green Lantern that the seats would enter the station upside down and they needed maintenance to flip them back? I remember the ops in Grona Lund being able to flip them on their own, so maybe the ops in Canads can too.

Hopefully they remove all the stupid modifications CalOSHA required so it runs like Insane. If they do this might actually be a decent addition

Honestly when I went in May I didnt think the parks ops were any worse than any other Six Flags park. IMO there are two big issues with this park:

!. The entrance policy is stupid, they need to redesign the main entrance to make it more efficient.
2. Alot of the park is run down and needs alot of TLC, Vipre should help the area by Le Monstre get a little sprucing up but the area where La Cobra used to be is in desperate need of repair/renovation.

^ I had no problems going in July, but yeah, they have like 5 buildings run down and unused that look like eyesores. Hopefuly next year they add something in Cobra's plot so we can see sprucing up of that area as well.
