Road Runner Express

It’s Not Easy Being a Coyote.

Oh, Wile E. Coyote, when will you learn? You just can’t catch the Road Runner, no matter how fast you run. The Road Runner Express will prove it once again, as it hustle you through a swooping, twisting adventure course on a mine car that forgot how to brake. Now just because it’s based on the epic chase of coyote vs. cuckoo does not mean this is a kiddie coaster. You’ll be calling this runaway mine car adventure one of the most action-packed adrenaline machines you’ll ride all day.

Venture into the elaborate Acme mining town deep in Crackaxle Canyon. You’ll be “beep beep”-ing as you climb up the seven story lift hill, but once you dive into a series of swooping high-G low to the ground curves, you’ll know this adventure is anything but kid stuff.

You’ll rocket through the frontier mining town, diving right through that other Crackaxle legend, the Iron Rattler. Then you’ll plow through covered tunnels, and ride right along the quarry walls, one of the defining geographic features that makes Six Flags Fiesta Texas so special. All this at a fast but family-friendly 35 miles per hour, but still not fast enough to catch a Road Runner. Sorry, Wile E.
