Six Flags: Fiesta Texas is getting ready to unveil their newest addition - Iron Rattler.

The Iron Rattler will be a unique technological marvel combining a classic wooden support structure with modern track and rails crafted of steel, allowing for unprecedented smooth and swift over-banked turns and inversions never before experienced on either a traditional steel or wooden coaster. Utilizing state-of-the-art Iron Horse Track™©® the innovative Iron Rattler will provide four over-banked turns, the most of any hybrid coaster today, and will be the first to deliver an inverted barrel roll for an awe-inspiring adventure in and around the surrounding 100-ft. quarry wall setting!

With its unique construction, the Iron Rattler will have:

• A staggering drop of 171 feet with an amazing drop angle of 81 degrees.
• A blazing top speed of 70 mph.
• Four over-banked turns — more than any other hybrid coaster, and the first of its kind to feature a completely inverted barrel roll.

Jeffrey Siebert, Director of Marketing for Six Flags: Fiesta Texas, stopped by Brazos Valley This Morning on Thursday to talk about the new coaster and other exciting things happening at the park this summer.
