Six Flags Fiesta Texas (SFFT) Discussion Thread

P. 288: New B&M Dive Machine Announced!

Recommended Posts

From SFFT Facebook-

"180-foot Tall Lift Hill - Complete! The Iron Rattler's EPIC 81-degree (almost straight down) first drop with a hairline twist is finished. Who's ready for the smoothest and most thrilling ride of your lifetime?"

Is that like a hairline fracture?

 

Or is the ride so intense your forehead gets bigger?

^I was wondering about that term. Is it just their clever way of saying it's a subtle twist?

 

I would hope a Memorial Day opening at the latest is still in the works. Even though it's spring, it is thought of as an unofficial start to summer, so maybe they were just marketing to summer-obsessed fans with that mention.

^I've never actually seen any of the shows at Fiesta Texas. Typically when I go I'm only there for a day so I spend the majority of the time riding rides. Which one(s) would you recommend for a short visit?

 

All of the shows are short. The longest ones are about 35 minutes. My favorite show is Rockin at Rockville High. It's been running since the opening season and is almost always great. I used to go see it 3-4 times a week when I lived closer to SFFT. Aside from that, the show that they have in the Zaragosa Theatre is usually pretty good, plus the theatre itself is a really neat venue. Plus, the air conditioning is a blessing during summer time.

Wow!!!! Those overbanked turns look freakin AMAZING!!!! This coaster has come together pretty awesomely. Looks like track work is almost coming to a finish from what we can see. I wonder how tunnel work is going. The dive off the cliff is gonna kick ass!

The Boss at SFStL should be next after Colossus but who knows what SF Corp will decide. I do love the Boss' layout so maybe a topper track retrofit would be a better fit than the Iron Horse treatment. In any case I give kudos to Six Flags for doing this to the Texas Giant and the Rattler.

I'm tellin ya... I've heard lot's of complaints about the Boss over the past few years, but it was running outstanding during Daredevil Daze in September. I stayed on it for the entire ERT. A local friend was telling me they had just put a ton of work into it. It still has some rough parts here and there (the final helix) but was more ride-able and faster than I remember it in 2000 and 2001.
