in the 2013 announcement it was revealed Rattler will be reborn in the same way as Texas Giant was, this time featuring a barrel roll right out of that twisty 81 degree first drop. The height of the drop will also be brought back to it's original 171 ft. mark, with a top speed of 70 mph. The release video didn't show anything else worthwhile but I'll post it when I get to a comp.

Personally I'm glad Six Flags acknowledges it as a hybrid and I'm pretty psyched for this ride.

Rocky Mountain Coasters has shown they can do great work (The New Texas Giant) and, while, this doesn't look as stunning as Texas Giant, I imagine it will still be fantastic.

Another (much better) animation. I'm extremely impressed.

Note: Rattler was originally built with a 166' drop, but due to roughness of the ride the drop was shortened to 124'. With this new conversion the drop will increase by 5' compared to the original Rattler.

I'm so excited about this. I didn't get to go to SFoT for Texas Giant, maybe we can make it to Texas for both.

Thank God they are removing that stupid neverending helix! That was by far one of the worst elements ever on a wooden coaster!

not one circuit, but three with bumps and kinks galore. Glad I didn't have to experience that.

ScreamScape.com has some new construction photos sent to them directly from the park. I am pretty excited about this!

I think my tweet still applies:
By the way, the link included in that tweet links to a slightly different angle of the shot above in case anyone is wondering.

Visit us during the day to experience family-friendly rides, Sesame Street Forest of Fun and Land of the Dragons children’s areas, and up-close animal encounters perfect for fall fun. Once the clock strikes 6 p.m., the Howl-O-Scream scares begin which may not be suitable for young children."
