Python @ SFA

Tuesday, December 12, 2000 2:49 PM
I keep hearing about Python at Six Flags America. All I know is it is an Arrow Shuttle Loop that was removed in '98 for Two Face, and is in the parking lot.

Anyone have any pics of it in the parking lot, or can anyone tell me more info on it?

I live about 30 mins. from the park and am a season pass holder,I have ridden Python in the past before it was removed and I'm not sure if it was an Arrow or not but I belive it was.I can tell you that PKI had the exact same ride named The Screamin Deamon quite a few years back.It was a pretty intense ride even though it was a shuttle looper. You had to climb stairs to get to the station which was about 4 or 5 stories high.The ride was catapulted straight ahead and directly into a drop which was about 40 feet or so and right into a loop and immediatley back up a 40 or so foot hill.Stops and is catapulted backwards down the hill through the loop and back to the station.The air you would get was incredible when you were shot out and into that drop was unbelivable for such a realitivly short ride.And to answer your question I do belive I saw track from the ride out to the side of one of the parking lots when I was there for fright fest back in Oct. although I dont have any pics.

There is an Arrow shuttle at SFEG just like that called Sidewinder. It's not that great of a ride but has amazing airtime going up the hill.

This is the answer to your question-

the coaster still has the track located around SROS. It is visible from the block brake.
