History[edit | edit source]

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 | edit source]

New Mexico Rattler has an underground tunnel.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single train with 6 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train. The train was built by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters, Inc.[2]
