Iron Rattler, Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Location: San Antonio, Texas
When the original Rattler debuted in 1992, it was the tallest, fastest wooden coaster in the world. But Fiesta Texas is hardly content to rest on its laurels: 11 years later, the ride has been reborn as the wood-and-steel hybrid Iron Rattler. Outfitted with an innovative steel track, a death-defying 81-degree drop, and a brand-new inverted barrel roll, Iron Rattler celebrates the marriage of old, new, and terrifying.
