(8/11/14) The rollercoaster known as Sea Viper (formerly: Corkscrew) at Sea World Australia is being removed from the park. According to the rumors, the ride is being scrapped entirely and will not be saved or resold to another park. The coaster has been sitting mostly inactive for the last 6 months from what I’m told and I’m guessing the last round of inspections may have been the final straw that forced the park to make the hard choice to pull the plug on it.
   Back when it first opened in 1981, it was the first triple-inversion coaster in Australia. No word on if the park has plans to add a new coaster to replace it in the next year or two. Currently the park only has one true coaster (Jet Rescue) and the new Storm Coaster Mack Flume/Coaster that opened for this past summer season.


This is sad news, I always hate to see an Arrow coaster bite the dust. This ride also had new trains built for it just a couple of years ago by Kumbak.

RE: Sea Viper - Scraped

It might just be me but am I the only person that thinks the trains to be sold to KD for Anaconda? I'm it's still the 40th and would help out so much.

If they replace it with another coaster then I don't see the new ride being that big. Sea Viper is small and the footprint of the ride is sandwiched between the main road and the Jet Rescue roller coaster. They don't have a lot of room to build in that space.

Theoretically the trains could go to any Arrow or Vekoma looping coaster. I don't know how enjoyable these new trains were.
