But how smooth will it get? Has the type if track used on Texas Giant ever been done before?

I like the helix in Rattler, but all the fun of it is all slow acceleration and the roughness of the track and surprise bumps. It's rough, but not too rough. If they put steel track in, that would take all the fun out of it. It would just be 3 huge smooth circles.

The way I see it is how much worse could it actually get? I'm sure it'll be worth it in the long run. :b

New for 2011!!

A new fireworks and laser light show will fill the nighttime sky this spring when Six Flags Fiesta Texas begins its new season March 5.
The theme park announced that its fireworks extravaganza was being revamped Tuesday as it unveiled changes planned for the upcoming season. The park's Zaragoza Theatre also will feature a new show, but the details will not be divulged until next year.

The fireworks show, called the Lone Star Spectacular, will include a new storyline and technical enhancements presented on the park's 100-foot quarry walls.

Fiesta Texas President Martin Bozer said the spectacular was cutting edge when it opened in 1992. New technologies will make for a “bigger and bolder production that will still pay homage to our great state of Texas,” he said.

Also scheduled next year is a return of the Starburst Summer Concert Series presenting well-known country artists, officials said.

I think it's a good idea to get back the title "Best Shows in America" and they could be doing this to compete against the "Disney's World of Color".

Hmmm, new storyline...

I have a feeling Texas will still be a central point to the story, perhaps we will all need to bow down to its greatness even more!

I like my title for the show better; "A salute to all states, but mostly Texas"

If San Antonio Sam isn't in this, then I'll mess with Texas.

Rattler REHAB NOW!

Postby RyanGsatMCO » Sat Mar 05, 2011 6:58 pm

A surprise today as Rattler had its second drop into the third hill rehabbed in the off season. THE SURPRISE IS IT IS Rocky Mountain Topper track. Tan in color not red so it blends in. This use to be one of the roughest parts of the ride that created jackhammering. That is no longer the case. It runs very smooth, but still has that wooden feel. I would compare it to a new GCI feel! I would have gotten some pictures, but having only a camera phone and the tan color of the track limits that. I may go out tomorrow with my camera and HEY may even do a TR if I feel up to it hahaha.

Now of course I am sure a large round of rumors are going to hit the net about "IT IS THE NEXT CHOSEN ONE" or something. I will just say with what I know I am only aware of this is a cheaper long term alternative. The 2nd drop was going to get retracked regardless this off season. There has been no FINAL go ahead to rehab the whole ride or even furthermore redo the ride. This is a test, but more of a "is this the way we should rehab rides" test. Although if they do like the results enough it may turn into a "LETS REDO THE WHOLE THING" only time will tell.

Ryan

Mods: I know this has been mentioned in several threads. Tx Giant and many more. If you feel this should be moved please do
