Has anyone been on it so far this season or know if it is running good??? I will be riding it for the first time in 10 years on Sat., and it is the primary focus of my stop. As Tidal Wave, it was my favorite ride at Great America. This will be quite a reunion!!

I rode the Viper on my first trip to Six Flags Over Georgia last Sunday. It loved it! I don't see why shuttle loopers don't ever get any credit. There were hardly any lines for it so I scanned my Lo-Q for GASM and rode Viper each time. This was one of my favorite rides in the park! Man, I wish Carowinds hasn't removed White Lightnin (schwartkopf shuttle looper). It appears that you have been to SFOG before, but if you haven't, don't miss Mindbender and GA Cyclone! They rock!
*EDIT* Read your profile and it appears that you haven't been to SFOG. You MUST ride Mindbender and the Cyclone. Mindbender is only the 5th coaster I've been on to get a 10/10 rating from me. Ride in the very back and very front. They both have extreme Gs and great airtime, but the airtime is in different places. And as for Cyclone, back seat. The air time will scare the crap outta ya.
