New Mexico Rattler is a roller coaster located at Cliff's Amusement Park in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. It is a hybrid roller coaster with wooden track and steel supports.

History[edit]

The ride was originally intended to open in summer 2002, but was initially delayed due to construction problems. In June, the ride's manufacturer Custom Coasters International declared bankruptcy. The park subsequently brought construction in house and New Mexico Rattler opened on September 28, 2002.[1]

Design[edit]

New Mexico Rattler has an underground tunnel.

Trains[edit]

Single train with 6 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
