Question about Viper

Talk about anything that has to do with Six Flags Great America and Hurricane Harbor here.

Hey guys,

While riding Viper yesterday (6/10/23) I noticed a severe jolt in the front seat going over the third hill.
The tallest hill right next to the lift hill.

Has anyone noticed a jolt on this hill?

I was also there that day, me and my bud went on it twice, once in row 2, and once in row 3. On the middle seats, you will never notice the jolt, but on the wheel seat, you can definitely feel it. This hill seems to be a reoccurring issue for the ride, this isn't the first time it's happened.
Some time, on way to successful, first of steps of all of the steps to being successful steps are hardest of all of the steps to successing.

It's been a problem area on the ride for what feels like the last 5 years or so at least. I often ride in car 1, row 3 and have noticed it being pretty bad for the past few years. I haven't rode it this year though, but sounds like the same area.

That pothole was pretty nasty this year. Typically I ride in row 2 and it's not as jarring in that row. Hopefully they patch it up this off season, there aren't really any other areas that need immediate attention in my opinion.
