Is sfmm's viper like sfgadv's gasm?

i was wondering if these coasters are alike, roughness wise.  GASM is the most painful coaster i have ever been on...more painful then the headbash restraints on premeir rides and more painful then vekoma slc's.  This is the only coaster i can say i truly didn't enjoy (i'd rather be on jr. gemini!)

Viper is the SAME EXACT ride. The only differernce is that Viper is a bit taller. Viper also appears in the movie Space Cowboys...and the guy riding it didnt look like he was being bashed to badly..it looks smoother than GASM but I cant compare cause ive only rode GASM.

Viper is WAY better IMO...during ERT on GASM, most of us took a spin or two, then went to wait for the other rides to open....

I have never been on GASM, but I LOVE Viper. It isnt EXACTLY the same from what i've seen. 

WARNING: Sarcasm ahead: Do you prefer Viper Or Gasm? Personally I like ORGASM.

LoadedG, you're right. I haven't seen the entire layout but I know that Viper goes straight into the break run, unlike Gasm or Shockwave which both turn into the break run, and thats the most painful part of both rides. The double loops on Viper go alongside the lift hill, and Gasm/Shockwave's double loops cut in front of the station, and I believe you go directly into the lift from the station without turning.

Do you really need to know what you're saying? It's ridiculous because you sound so sure of yourself too. I can tell you've never even seen Viper before, because your assumption is very obvious. Viper's layout differs quite a bit from SFGAm's ShockWave and SFNJ's GASM. It has nothing to do with the order of inversions, but the layout is completely set off from each other. Plus, Viper is the improved version of these rides, so why would you not find it less painful than the two previous ones? From all the talk I've been getting, Viper seems to be the better liked out of this group of 3.
