Epic Iron Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
Listed as the Best New Steel Coaster for 2013
During Annual Golden Ticket Awards
Amusement Today industry publication “Golden Ticket Awards” recently listed the epic new Iron Rattler coaster as the highest rated new steel rollercoaster on this year’s World’s Best New Attraction rankings for 2013, Lone Star Nights best regional theme park night time show, and #2 Best Shows for 2013.
The Golden Ticket Awards are held annually and honor “the best of the best” in the amusement industry in various categories. Calculated from an international poll conducted by Amusement Today, the Golden Ticket Awards are the results of a detailed survey that is sent to a database of experienced and well-traveled amusement park fans around the world.
The new epic Iron Rattler rollercoaster is a massive new coaster standing tall at 171-feet with a staggering 81-degree drop featuring a Zero-G Barrel Roll! The Iron Rattler is a unique technological marvel which combines a classic wooden support structure with modern track and rails crafted of steel, allowing for unprecedented smooth and swift over-banked turns and inversions never before experienced on either a traditional steel or wooden coaster.
"Six Flags Fiesta Texas has to be thrilled with the success of Iron Rattler. It was such a superb addition to the park. Rollercoaster fans that travelled from all over the country to experience it just can't get enough," stated Golden Ticket Communications Coordinator Tim Baldwin of Amusement Today.
Among the Amusement Today award the epic Iron Rattler received, Six Flags Fiesta Texas also ranked second globally for Best Shows in 2013! Additionally, Lone Star Nights Laser and Fireworks Celebration was ranked #1 Best Night Time Show for a regional theme park.
"Iron Rattler really performed for Six Flags Fiesta Texas, as did Lone Star Nights. The laser/multi-media night show was the only theme park show in the industry to be a finalist amongst the caliber of Disney productions. And Iron Rattler, what a hit! Even the most experienced coaster enthusiasts were finding it to be a remarkable masterpiece of coaster brilliance. I totally loved it," said Golden Ticket Communications Coordinator Tim Baldwin of Amusement Today.
“We certainly knew we had a winning coaster with Iron Rattler. What great recognition of this innovative attraction and the thrills it will continue to provide for many years to come. We’d like to also thank the readers of Amusement Today, their enthusiasm and support are certainly much appreciated,” stated Martin Bozer, park president.
