Iron Rattler is a Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid roller coaster located at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, Texas, USA.[1] The coaster spends half of its course on top of the cliffs surrounding Fiesta Texas, utilizing the Rattler's helix structure for the inversion and two over-banked turns. Iron Rattler interacts with Bugs' White Water Rapids, the train ride, and Road Runner Express.

Ride experience[edit | edit source]

As the train moves out of the station, it makes a left turn. Riders then head up a 179 foot tall chain lift hill. At the top, riders are being held for a few seconds before dropping 171 feet at an 81° angle, reaching a max speed of 70 mph. The train ascends 142 feet up a cliff, passing through a 110° over-banked curve and a 95° over-banked curve. Soon afterwards, the train makes a 125 foot left-handed dive off the cliff and goes straight into a 113 foot tall zero-g roll. Riders move through two more over-banked curves before plunging 100 feet off the cliff. The train turns left into a tunnel before returning to the station.

Trains[edit | edit source]

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