The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged in 3 individual seats per car for a total capacity of 18 riders.
* Structure: The belly of the snake and the column supports are yellow, while the outside skin is red, black & yellow. This is characteristic of the King or Coral snake.
* Elements: A lot of swishing back and forth as in a real bobsled through a helixed maze.
* Features: This ride features individual cars instead of linked trains as do most bobsled coasters in Europe.
* History: This was originally built in 1984 at SFMM where it was known as Sarajevo Bobsleds. Relocated in 1987 to SFOT, it was originally called the Avalanche Bobsled. La Vibora translated into English means "The Viper".

The Verdict
The ride doesn't compare to the bobsleds of Europe. Many feel a bobsled in the truest sense of the word would not have need of the brake blocks found within the circuit. Thusly it never really gains much in the way of the speed. This was my first bobsled ride, and I thought it gave a good introduction to this class of coasters.
I rate it 3 Star's
