-Amazing Airtime
-Consistent
-Back seat and front are amazing
-Well paced
Why I didn't choose Eagle
-The ride is inconsistent. Sometimes you get a crap ride. Other times you get a really good.
-The roughness is starting to ruin the airtime.


I 100% agree with this Viper all the way. The double down on a non wheel seat is amazing. My favorite row is second to back. Viper is my number 3 in the park as of now.

Ragin Cajun and Iron Wolf went from Six Flags Great America to Six Flags America. I guess they weren't GREAT anymore.

I think both are great but I’m always gonna love AE red. It was my favorite coaster in the park for a very long time before XFlight was built.

Is this really a question for me it’s viper it’s a smoother ride and I love the air time this thing gives for me American eagle is not enjoyable in its current state I believe a rmc/retrack could do it some goo but I I wanted a sfga wooden coaster to recive the rmc treatment I would say viper

Viper would actually be an interesting RMC. The airtime is already good on the rollercoaster. But I think AE is getting the RMC. It is in rough shape.

Isn't that what twisted cyclone is? An RMC cyclone?

So I just went on the Eagle for the first time in like 3 years and WOW it's rough and trimmed to death. Those last 3 bunny hills have like 0 airtime now.

Hmmm, which train did you ride and what row? I've ridden red, front row, several times this year and have gotten very good airtime! (I leave the lapbar up a bit, and loosen the seatbelt)

I was back row red. It got trimmed HARD off the helix and barely made it up to the brakes before the final helix. We actually sat on those breaks for a minute so maybe it was just a bad run.

Personally I prefer viper, as it is a lot smoother of an experience, and a lot more airtime, especially the way the lapbars are built I can get a lot more space than Eagle.

After coming back from my trip, I can’t help but compare Viper to the wooden roller coasters I rode on my trip. Viper is indeed a great coaster and we are lucky to have this at our park. So I would say Viper is better than AE, especially the 2nd to back row after a rainy day man it hauls. It’s still to this day one of my top 10 wooden roller coasters.
