I can't to see how the ride warms up as the summer season begins and it warms up a bit. The park can also use a few different lift settings (slow crawl over, normal speed, or even a fast kick-over) so it will be interesting to see how it runs as time goes on. Definitely look forward to the rides we will get on it in July during the Texas-Midwest tour so I can fully compare it to NTAG (I think I still slightly prefer NTAG right now but that can easily change with this summer).

I also forgot to mention I loved the little effects! The water bombs at the bottom of the cliff drop were awesome and the lights were really fun in the tunnel. It was like a mini rave in there and you could see the tunnel walls flying right by you! Really helps the speed as you fly up like 50 feet inside the tunnel!

I Love Donkeys!

Man what an amazing ride. The fact that 9 months ago if some on told me they rode rattler 10+ times in the same day I'd either call them a liar or they're a masochist. I lost count somewhere in the 20s when we no longer even had to get off of the train. Every seat on this ride is a different experience it is that amazing. I prefer the left side over the right especially in the barrel roll because you almost feel like you will get tossed out. Whereas the right side you just glide right through it which is also awesome. I just can't say enough about this ride from the drop to the overbanks, barrel roll, dive off the quarry and into the tunnel fantastic. Can't wait to hear about RMC's next project or 2 or 3...

For those asking about NTAG comparisons, NTAG has more pops of air, but I think iRats pops really keep you out of the seat longer than the giants. They are both must rides but since iRat is 5 hours closer to me than the giant and it has that barrel roll and quarry setting my RMC ranking is iRat at 1a and the giant at 1b Outlaw Run is pending(hopefully not for much longer though)

I've gone pantless!

It looks to me like Texas has two great RMC rides to brag about. Coasters like New Texas Giant, Iron Rattler, and Outlaw Run (in Missouri) definitely give the industry a whole new target to shoot for.

Today was a blast! The Iron Rattler is so intense. I was blaming out then next thing I know I'm upside down... Incredible. Doesn't even compare to NTAG. Iron Rattler is #1!

...and Jeffrey Siebert's voice sounds 10X cooler in person. 'Nuff said. Huge thanks to Jaime and the crew that operated the rides! Today truly was an incredible experience.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I was able to get two rides in today. That first drop is fantastic. The tunnel is awesome with the lights and mist. A great coaster all around. I'm not sure where I rank it yet but I'm coming back tomorrow to ride more.

Fiesta Texas has a winner on there hands. Oh yeah the Six Flags crew at the park today was awesome.

Couldnt agree more Chuck! Do you think they will ever make a full steel coaster? I necessarily dont think they need to if they can make rides like this
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

Had a really great day today! I got to ride a lot of rides a lot of times, and i got to meet Robb, which was awesome. I have to say riding the Iron Rattler was the best experience on a roller coaster ever, I couldn't believe that drop! Thanks to Jamie, Tracie and all of the great crew that put this day together, and I can't wait till Sunday to come and ride the Iron Rattler again! :)
I'm ready for the Iron Rattler!

Yes thanks again to the whole Six Flags crew for opening Iron Rattler for us today. Also for the free water.

Seriously, I haven't stopped thinking of that first drop. The rest of the ride is great but that first drop is redonkulous :airtime:
