Wow, that last pic really hit me hard. I don't care if it were mediocre, I really miss it already.

I rode that ride last summer, let me tell you its fun to look at but it sucked. I mean all old corkscrew models are fun to look at and some are nice to ride but this was just well.........sub par would be nice.

Its never a good sign when the station is empty and no one, I mean no one wants to re-ride.

Its not that the ride sucked at all! I rode it in October and found it to still be very smooth! Its just not a popular or signature ride anymore! Its well over 20 years old! It was just time for the poor Python to be put to sleep. It served its days well and opened the doors to many new and exciting coasters!

Good point,If rides like Python weren't built today's line up of coasters wouldn't be possible.

Can I park my donkey here?

Python is an ARROW coaster not a VEKOMA
Signature.
