Iron Rattler is a Rocky Mountain Construction hybrid reaching speeds of 70 MPH and with a barrel roll. Six Flags Fiesta Texas retracked the old Rattler wooden coaster with steel track and added more unique elements, such as 90-degree turns.


Looking for a high thrill ride? This is it. When the train reaches the top of the lift hill it stops dead in its tracks, creating significant suspense. It then plummets 171 ft. at a right angle and traverses a course which includes a couple of overbanked turns, several drops and a barrel roll. Near the end of the course it zooms into a tunnel. A ride in the dark is totally awesome. The tunnel is pitch black and consequently both eerie and electrifying. This coaster fully lived up to expectations.
