Whether you are a believer or not, voodoo magic has cast an eerie shadow over the United States and it is spreading to our park. Once believed to help people with their mind, body, and soul, voodoo magic was an outlet for comfort. However, chilling stories like this one ended the good and brought about an evil so horrifying that our park may never be the same.
In 1852, Louisiana voodoo priestess Marie was beloved by the townspeople. She helped cure the sick and offered financial assistance to business men. However, not everyone loved her so. Voodoo witch doctor Vlad felt unappreciated by the New Orleans community and was sick of people only going to Marie. Vlad wanted to take her down. He knew Marie gave advice to a patient on how to cure their sickness. Marie planned to treat the patients voodoo doll to heal him for good. Vlad snuck into her hut, stole the doll, and burned it to ashes resulting in a long and painful death for the sick patient. The next day all of the townspeople blamed Marie for what happened and sentenced her to death. Feeling betrayed, Marie fled to a place where no one could possibly find her: Darien Center, New York.
Years later, an amusement park began to emerge.The first roller coaster at Six Flags Darien Lake was built nearby. Marie finally saw her opportunity to get back at humans for ruining her life. Once a year, she uses her evil voodoo magic to turn the ride into a live viper which bites anyone in its path. No matter how high you go, how fast you turn, or how much you hide, Voodoo Viper will only be a step behind.
