Epic New Iron Rattler Coaster’s 180-Foot Tall First Hill
And Drop Are Complete
Six Flags Fiesta Texas reaches first thrilling milestone as the 81-degree drop hits bottom
Six Flags Fiesta Texas today announces the epic 180-foot first lift hill and the exhilarating first drop of the Iron Rattler rollercoaster are now complete.
The exciting first drop boasts a stunning almost straight down 81 degree, 171-foot drop with a hairline twist for extreme thrills! The Iron Rattler is a unique technological marvel combining a classic wooden support structure with a modern steel track, allowing for an unprecedented ultra-smooth ride experience.
Construction is currently underway for the New Iron Rattler hybrid wood and steel rollercoaster as contractors are working on additional signature components to bring the massive Iron Rattler to life. The next exhilarating Iron Rattler element under construction is the Zero-G Barrel Roll which flips riders completely upside down, the first of any hybrid coaster.
In addition to the massive first drop of the Iron Rattler, the coaster’s additional epic features include:
• A blazing top speed of 70 mph
• Four over-banked turns—more than any other hybrid coaster
• An exhilarating Zero-G Barrel Roll
• Camelback Airtime Hills
• An awe-inspiring free fall into the quarry tunnel
