Sarajevo Bobsleds to Avalanche Bobsled

This ride opened up at Six Flags Magic Mountain in 1984 as Sarajevo Bobsleds. However, as part of the ride rotation program that the Six Flags chain was operating in the 1980s, it was moved to Six Flags Over Texas only one year later.

In 1985, the ride officially opened at Six Flags Over Texas as Avalanche Bobsled, sporting the same light blue paint scheme from it's season at Magic Mountain.

In 1995, the ride was repainted and renamed to fully embrace it's Spain location within the park.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Guests may find that on a rainy day La Vibora will not operate. Actually, the ride will not operate with even the slightest amount of moisture in the trough.

Due to La Vibora's method of travel, it is unsafe to operate the ride in wet conditions.
