Viper Ready to Roll Backwards at Six Flags Great America

Six Flags Great America is ready to premier its next backwards ride, this time their twisted wooden roller coaster, Viper.  The park has announced that riders can board and cover the ride's 3,500 feet of track backwards right away, as the turned around ride is already open!

To celebrate the park had "30 snakes on a Viper train" - as you can see it was a more family friendly version of snakes rather than the actual animals.  Still, those kids are mighty intimidating with that snake face paint!

Oh, who am I kidding, these kids are cute, not scary!  30 snakes on a Viper train is a pretty fun promotional idea, I must admit.

Viper - Backwards! will run at Six Flags Great America through August 26th.  The first ride the park turned around this year, Batman the Ride, will end its backwards session on July 7th.  If you haven't checked out that ride yet you still have a few days to do so!
