Iron Rattler storms Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio has unveiled one of North America’s most anticipated new coasters. Supplied by Rocky Mountain Construction, the Iron Rattler combines a classic wooden support structure with modern steel track.

This combination allows for smooth and swift over-banked turns and inversions of the kind never before experienced on either a traditional steel or wooden coaster.

Seated in 24-passenger trains, passengers plummet down an 81-degree drop from a height of 180ft (55m) reaching a top speed of 70mph (113 kph), then snake through four wild over-banked turns and inversions. Iron Rattler is the first coaster to deliver a zero-G inverted barrel roll. The ride boasts the bragging rights of the tallest, steepest and fastest hybrid coaster in the world.

As well as camelback airtime and a freefall into a quarry tunnel, the coaster also features several special effects including fog, water cannon blasts, dramatic, synchronised tunnel lighting and even rattlesnake sounds and vibrations!
