Iron Rattler is a steel roller coaster located at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio, Texas. The ride opened in 2013, replacing The Rattler, a wooden roller coaster, by putting a new steel track on top of The Rattler's wooden support structure. The distance between the lowest and highest points of the first drop was increased from 124 to 171 feet (38 to 52 m) and the drop was made steeper by changing the angle to 81 degrees. The resulting modifications increased the speed of the trains from 65 to 70 miles per hour (105 to 113 km/h). It is the first hybrid wood and steel roller coaster to feature an inversion, in which riders are turned upside-down and then back upright. The inversion is a barrel roll, which is when the train goes through a combination of a loop and a roll.
The Iron Rattler was designed by Alan Schilke and built by Rocky Mountain Construction. The wooden Rattler had been constructed by Roller Coaster Corporation of America. When it opened in 1992, it was the tallest and fastest wooden coaster in the world, with a height of 179 feet (55 m), a first drop of 166 feet (51 m) and a top speed of 73 mph (117 km/h).
