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.

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.

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.
