How bout brown? I would think it would blend in with the wood and the general public would never notice!

Of all the possible realities that could happen with this project, you're worried about the color choice for the track?
How gay ARE you????
;)
(This remark coming from a guy who once watched a "Design on a Dime" marathon on HGTV while the rest of the world was watching the Super Bowl!)


100% gay :lmao: but seriously, I am.

I like colors, especially pleasing colors. Hoping for a set of blue rails, but I doubt it. lol

Oh, and I'm definitely interested in the possibilities. If you can go inverted with Topper Track, and this is supposed to be Iron Horse, this should be bat**** insane.

How about just hope the ride is at least half-way decent? Which if it was only that, it would be a bazillion times better than Rattler has been in the past 15 years.

Considering I have no personal ties to Fiesta Texas I have no problem giving y'all a quick scoop. I happen to have several friends who work as ride attendants at this particular Six Flags; the Rattler was sold and is being moved to a different park. At the moment there is no news about what ride will be replacing it.

No it isn't, that is all just employee rumors. The track is being carefully removed so that the park can reuse the footers for the redo of the Rattler.

Anyways I hope to see that helix become home to several of those high banked turns on NTAG one after another.

Believe what you want, I really could care less. Just giving a scoop from what I've been told.
Could it be rumors? Sure, I can't deny that possibility.

I personally would consider what I have mentioned to be a possibility. The park issued a statement on billboards throughout the grounds which clearly stated that the Rattler is no longer going to be at Fiesta Texas. Those billboards unfortunately did not tell us whether the coaster is being moved, or taken down for good. Either way - it's not a renovation project.

With the debt situation that has taken control of Fiesta Texas along with other Six Flags parks (i.e. Six Flags Over Texas, Six Flags New England, Six Flags Great Adventure,) it wouldn't surprise me if my friends on staff are correct and Fiesta Texas has actually sold the Rattler.

It's like I said though, believe what you want. I really could care less. :roll:

Its obvious that you do care, because you responded to his post. No park would be dumb enough to buy The Rattler(with the amount of complaints riders give), it is the worst coasters(in its current conditon) that I have ever rode on. But just for fun, lets play the "what if" game for a minute. If they were taking the ride down to sell it, why would they start on the helix(the middle of the ride)? Also why would the close down in the middle of the season and not wait till the end of the year?

Ride opps don't know shit, thats why they are ride opps and not management.

I Love Donkeys!

Maybe, another park bought the helix and only the helix. So, both ideas might be right only time will tell. In all seriousness though no park or human being would be ignorant enough to buy The Rattler, well there might be one person...maybe I will start a rumor Jerry Jones is going to buy it and set it on top of Jerry World(Cowboys Stadium.) Having dealt with some of the park employees a few weeks ago I'm going to go with the guy who said they don't know squat.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
