OMFG!! I am so excited for the new rattler. That first drop is looking truly epic.

 

 

I must say though I am a bit surprised at some of you guys saying you don't want to be in the back of the train... I'm hoping to be EXACTLY there when I get on this thing.

 

The first time I rode the new Texas Giant I rode in the front car... it was quite fun, very enjoyable. The next time (and every time since) I've been in the very BACK car. The difference is quite breathtaking! I'm expecting this to be even more so...

 

Just looking at this thing makes me smile

Jeffrey Seibert represented SFFT at NCC. You can see his presentation here:

 

 

And if you don't have time to watch a 22 minutes video, heres some highlights:

- 187 foot Gunslinger slingshot located on Wagon Wheel site

- Iron Rattler will have a back story of the worlds largest rattlesnake has been been found in the abandoned Iron Horse Mine co. and they need an exterminator to remove it

- Theming will include carnival style advertisements for the snake and the exterminators truck

- Trains will have stadium seating and no windows like on NTAG

- Two trains, 24 people per train, 850 pph

- 3266 feet long, 112 sec ride time, 102 dispatch interval, 92 second load/unload time

- Timing based on station boosters at 8ft/sec, lift speed at 12ft/sec, braking to 10ft/sec in floater breaks with complete stop in station only

 

At 19:40 you can see the complete pov.

Wow, so one incredible drop, 6 spots of airtime, 4 overbanks, a tunnel, 1 barrel roll and what should be incredibly fast pace? This thing is looking better and better. Even the last hill/turn into the brakes looks crazy. And the theming to go with it...I'm impressed.

 

It also looks like they are going to force the dispatch interval by having the train never stop before reaching the station. Of course it can stop if it has to, but that's not the goal. Hope SFFT can keep it up

The first time I rather ride in the front or towards the front so I can see where I'm going. I'll ride in the back after that.

Is it just me or does 850 pph seem kind of low for an hourly throughput.

 

For Fiesta Texas, it should be fine. The rides never really get long lines outside of Spring Break (won't even be open) or 4th of July. Everyone goes to the waterpark during the busy summer season!
