Poltergeist is a steel launched roller coaster located at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, Texas, USA. Built by Premier Rides, Poltergeist uses a LIM launching system instead of a traditional lift hill to propel the train.
Poltergeist and Joker's Jinx at Six Flags America opened in 1999, three years after the world's first LIM-launched coasters, Flight of Fear and its clone opened at Kings Island and Kings Dominion. It replaced a golf course.
Riders are launched from 0 to 60 mph in under 3.5 seconds.
