Viper and Vekoma MK1212 Trains

Sean: As you may have read in our brand new Six Flags Over Georgia report, we were huge fans of Blue Hawk at the Southeast Six Flags park. Blue Hawk went through life as Kamikaze for two years before opening as Ninja at Six Flags Over Georgia in 1991.

We believe that Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain can benefit from these trains, to assure amazing ride experiences for years to come! Continue reading “Viper and Vekoma MK1212 Trains”
