Rattlesnake was a steel family roller coaster located at Pleasurewood Hills in Lowestoft, Suffolk, England, UK. It was built by Zierer.

History[edit | edit source]

The ride opened in 1986 and was called Ladybird. In 1989 or 1990, it was renamed Rattlesnake. In 2004, the name was changed again to Snake In The Grass. At some point between 2011 and 2014, the name was reverted to Rattlesnake.

In 2016 the ride was closed and boarded up. In January 2017 it was announced that Rattlesnake would be removed from the park. The large snake that sat on the station was auctioned off to raise money for charity.
