By any chance are you that famous guy I heard about who came all the way from Houston to ride it?

Someone asked me that. I think they knew one of the employees of the previous day who heard me say I was from Houston. I guess when the story got to them, I was famous. But enough about me, go ride Iron Rattler now :airtime:

^Yeah, he was there. I had heard of him but didn't recognize him until Jamie pointed him out. I assumed he was just part of the talent but I had no idea who he was.

Today I headed out to Fiesta Texas to check out the Gold Pass holder's preview for the one and only Iron Rattler and boy, the park was packed with Guest. With that being said, When I got to the queue for I-Rat, The line was still on the ground queue before it even got to the fist step of the ramp But that didn't stop the ride crew from slowing down. I was already up and ready to ride from the end of the line to the boarding gates within 20 mins. The I-Rat Crew did Awesome Job. They were even training other employees for the ride and that didn't slow them down either.

As you might of heard from others on this thread, This ride is packed with air time and as Jeffrey says "There is no need for seats because you're butt is hardly ever touching them." I counted 8 times of air time that you get to experience through out the ride. You get air time in on the drop, Double up, over bank on double up, Zero G barrel roll, Air time hill, bunny hop, Free fall Hill And lastly my favorite, The climb to the Brakes produces a awesome amount of air time and lateral G's. The First drop is amazing, In my opinion, The best drop in the world. As you descend down the track shifts to the left to avoid the cliff, producing a nice amount of lateral G's and at the same time, you get air time! The Hairline twist through the bottom of the drop feels insanely fast and with the cliff being right next to you, it feels even faster! Then come the double up which produces some nice air time on the climb and the Overbank #1 (I"m literally off my seat.). Then Comes the overbank "slide" of the quarry wall and into the Zero G Barrel Roll. I have never Felt a Zero G Roll as good as the one on I-rat. I've been on Many B&M twisters and stuff and never had I ever had my butt of my seat on their Zero G Roll. I_Rat's zero G Barrel Roll got my butt off the seat wonderfully. From there The First air time hill creates a nice burst of airtime and to Over bank # 3 & $ (Aka "Funky twist") flows through like butter. From there the small bunny hop creates a nice pop of airtime and the free fall hill gives a great amount of airtime. As you head into the tunnel, the temperature suddenly changes into a nice cool chill which feel refreshing, Even on a hot day. The Lighting and Fog inside the tunnel is really neat and the final approach to the brakes is one pf the most intense endings I have ever seen as you get Air time and a strong amount of laterals G's into the brakes. I was Really REALLY Happy with this ride And I have already placed it on My top 10 as My #1!

Special Thanks To Jeffrey and Jamie for the Updates and events they hosted. They are both Great people to have around the park. Without them, I wouldn't have been able to ride the Ride 60+ times.

And For those who were riding I-Rat on 5/17/13, I had a blast with them riding the ride over and over and over again. I got to meet a lot of new people that share the same intrest in Coasters and Theme park and riding with them was made the ride experience SOO much better.

Enough of me. Heres some pictures! Enjoy!

Its in the queue line as soon as you walk in its front of you. Then you walk to the left of it. Yesterday the message seemed to be talking about still building the coaster. I wonder if they will change it. I'm referring to the message you get when you call the phone number on the truck. That changed around the queue line a bit as well. They have a new flash pass entrance also. I think the exit now will not take you through the gift shop near by.
