Me and my mom lucked out, we have Platinum membership that allowed us to use the membership entrance and skip the regular line. That line was awful though, it was easily 30-45 mins and to just get into the park that is atrocious. We didnt know about the second entrance before we went to Goliath and found it but next time we go we will be using that entrance if its open.

Can't help but wonder if La Ronde had an S&S canceled in favor of this...

I got there a half hour before it opened so I only waited around 5-10 mins. Rode Goliath 20+ times that day, and it was one of the days the park was open till 11:30pm. The other entrance wasn't open both days I went, it seems like they don't want people entering there, cause the parking situation is so annoying and that results in them blocking off the road to get there.

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.

I got to ride this as Green Lantern at SFMM in Summer 2017 - and I was among the last riders before the ride was closed for good. This will be a completely new ride experience for this park. Interestingly, SF White Water in Atlanta, GA is getting a massive new water slide called "Python Plunge" in 2020 - and the 'python' in the logo is IDENTICAL to the 'viper' in the logo for Vipere!

It would be nice, if those who run La Ronde actually go over to Sweden,
and Grona Lund park, and try INSANE out for them self. Hmm? :airtime:

I think what they need in the former Cobra area is a smaller second entrance and then maybe a flat ride near the tail end of Vampire, maybe a Zamperla Endeavor.

Why? Hoping it’s damaged beyond repair in shipment or something? Yeah I feel you...

Most of the pieces are still sitting under Riddler's Revenge at Magic Mountain

Super Manège is gone and they installed a big sign to advertise the new ride next to where it will stand. I've also seen on pictures on other forums that they have received some track pieces and cars, but as these pictures aren't mine I won't share them here. I'll try to go get some myself later this week.
