History

New Mexico Rattler was originally intended to open in the summer of 2002, but was initially delayed due to construction problems. It would be the last coaster by Custom Coasters International. During the New Mexico Rattler's construction, the company would close its offices and would file for bankruptcy the same year.[1] The park subsequently brought construction in house and New Mexico Rattler finally opened on September 28, 2002.[2]
