As La Ronde is (somewhat) close to my university, I took some time off my notebooks this afternoon to photograph everyone's favorite coaster :

^ Wouldn't it be funny (ha ha) if La Ronde actually gets it right with this,
like how to run it, load it, right? Like at Grona Lund, with INSANE? =)

I have hope with this not being in the US that they can get this right. But it also is La Ronde.

Thanks for the pictures! That just reminded me of how much more intense Vampire seemed than other Batclones.

Even if they get it right, plenty of people are still going to hate this ride.

BLEO wrote: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.

Probably referring to the track which itself is quite serpentine.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

I'm actually quite excited for this, mainly to see if they can get this right. I mean I never thought that it was that bad at Magic Mountain, just dull. I never got any flips and I always managed to just be tilted on my back the entire time. I actually do think the coaster fits in well with the La Ronde lineup and it's nice to see something new there. Plus Super Manage just looked hideous.

I'm very surprised they even bothered with removing the footers left from Cobra

Any news on Vipère? Any vertical construction or anything? (Please lord don't let anybody say something like "it's Six Flags, vertical construction won't start until April.")
