Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Epic New Rollercoaster




The Iron Rattler is no joke. This ridiculous new hybrid coaster (made of both wood and steel) opens to season pass holders this weekend and then to the public on Saturday, May 25. The Rattler is the world's steepest and fastest hybrid coaster, boasting a terrifying/awesome 81-degree fall from a height of 180-feet, so be sure to save the selfies for another ride.

The Rattler also features a looping zero-gravity barrel roll, four over banked turns, a scary little upside down stint, and hits up to 70 miles per hour. Check out the video below:
