La Vibora is no conventional roller coaster. Instead of rigid rails, La Vibora has a metal trough with free-rolling cars that ride up on the trough's edges during turns, resembling a bobsled. Located in the Mexico and Spain section of the park, the ride's name translates to "The Viper" in English and features a red, yellow, and black color scheme to match.
Originally located at Six Flags Magic Mountain as "Sarajevo Bobsleds," La Vibora was moved to Six Flags over Texas for the 1986 season as part of the Six Flags ride rotation program. The ride was initially called Avalanche Bobsled and painted light blue, but the color scheme and name was soon changed to better reflect its location in the park's Mexico and Spain section.
- Although most roller coasters can operate in light to moderate rain, La Vibora shuts down with any amount of precipitation due to the how the bobsleds freely travel through the trough.
- La Vibora has a support system similar to Shock Wave. Several of its supports taper down to a sphere-shaped bearing near the bottom and connect to a mating socket on the footer. This flexible connection allows the track and support to flex with each passing car, reducing stress.
