Get out to Six Flags Fiesta Texas to experience the classic wooden coaster through nearly a mile of high-speed turns, looping twists and breathtaking drops as The Ratter prepares for last riders on Sunday, August 5!

Just my luck! I just rode it this past Saturday! (July 7th)
I was always hearing that this ride was closing, so I wanted to give it one last ride. Sadly, I waited over an hour for it, and it broke down. We waited through and finally got to sit in the front. Was it worth it? No. Does the ride suck? Pretty much. I was just glad to give it one last spin before it leaves.
I can't imagine they would pull the only Wooden coaster out of Fiesta, Tx.
All we know is that RMC said that they had a project at FT. Now we know that Rattler is done as of next month.
Everything beyond that is merely speculation, but it seems a safe bet to say that the two items are related.
Now... will it be a makeover with topper track (and seeing the SDC monster going up, that wouldn't be a bad thing), a makeover with Iron Horse track (NTGiant turned out great, after all), or will they just TAER IT DOWN and build something new there?

Let the speculation begin.
Though I doubt it would happen, it would be cool if they did a near-vertical drop similar to NTAG which lead into a double up into the first turn. However instead of turning back around, it went along to the right, diving and rising off and on the cliff, until it got to the other side of the park. From there it could do an intense helix/some other element, then make its way back. Probable never going to happen, but hey, at least SFFT is finally receiving a signature ride that (hopefully) will have tons of airtime.
