    Airtimes First Drop Intensity Too short Dead spots

    This ride gets 5 stars, but it's not my favorite ride at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. It's a masterpiece for sure from beginning to end. That first drop is nuts because the first drop gives you ejector and lateral. The following banked turns on the quarry before the barrel roll provide some fast paced sections, and that barrel roll is intense. The best part of the ride is the drop off the quarry wall, and I recommend everyone to try this ride in the back row once just for that drop. One of my favorite drops on any coaster ever. The only negative I can say besides the duration is on the quarry in between the drop and barrel roll is a dead spot where the coaster loses its speed. I think honestly, this would be my favorite if they gave it one more lap like the old Rattler did after the tunnel. Maybe they could've put a station flyby with a zero g stall, followed by 3 or 4 airtime hills and then a barrel roll into the brake run, a la Outlaw Run! Amazing ride, RMC did an amazing job with this!

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors

    This is an incredible ride. The ejector is amazing as it is on all RMCs and the first drop and quarry dive are excellent. Plus I didn't find the quarry wall section to be nearly as slow as everyone says. Overall a fantastic ride that's in my top 10

    Iron Rattler is an amazing ride. The first drop is fantastic and the interaction with the quarry is great. The gerstlauer trains are fantastic and provide plenty of room. This comes in handy for that awesome zero-g roll that gives some great hang. The section on the quarry was great I thought and provided some great airtime moments. The tunnel finale is cool as well.

    First Drop Masterpiece Ejectors Too short

    Where do I start with irat, this is one of the best creations from the legendary Alan schilke, from the twisted drop that paid homage to the original rattlers drop minus the 7 lateral gs lol. The drop does give insane ejector and some reasonable lateral force as well. The ride than has many more ejector moments and an awesome zero g roll that offers a nice bit of hang time which I think is a nice contrast from the ejector airtime. Then after a less speedy but still fun section atop the quarry wall comes the greatest airtime moment on the ride, the drop off the quarry wall. This is one of the greatest ejector moments ever created, it beats the first drop by a mile. The ejector tanks you upwards and is sustained for a second or 2 adding to the insanity that is irat. Then after that there is a cool tunnel before a nice pop of air into the brakes. Overall iron rattler is a top tier rmc that is short but incredibly sweet!!!

    First Drop Location Ejectors Too short Dead spots

    This is my 6th favorite coaster I've ridden as of 4/23/20. The first drop is amazing and the drop off the quarry is really fun even though it's overrated. The reason I say it has dead spots is because of when it's on top of the quarry. It's also too short but it's an RMC so I can't complain too much.

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors

    This ride is absolutely incredible. It’s been my favorite coaster for 2 years now and I love this thing to death. The only con is it loses a little bit of speed on the quarry but that isn’t in the list of cons. I wish I could give more pros though this ride is nuts. Each airtime hill gives amazing airtime and the drop is just insane. Even the turn into the break run gives insane airtime. Overall, this is easily the best roller coaster in Texas and I recommend it to anyone who loves airtime and RMC.

    Airtimes First Drop Dead spots

    4 out of 5. The first drop is so enjoyable great speed and the twist to it. There is dead spots in the middle as it rides toward the back, but the ending with the blind drop that you do not really see coming makes up for the boring mid section.

    First Drop Fun Ejectors Too short

    The first drop on this is the best drop on any Rocky Mountain construction roller coaster. When you drop you actually get some crazy Laterals in the middle of the drop. The first hill you go over onto the quarry wall you get some insane Ejector And let’s not forget the drop off the quarry Into the tunnel is really good sustained Flo-jector airtime my only Complaint is it could be longer and some of the other elements could be a bit more forceful. However this is one terrific coaster

    Airtimes First Drop Comfort Theming

    Go on a dead day, the ride ops will let you stay on the ride, stop complaining about the length. There isn’t a single element on this ride that feels boring or pointless. This is the second best RMC, with number one being the bae steel vengeance

    Airtimes First Drop Location Too short

    What a ride. Some say it;s super overrated, others say it's one of the best RMC's. I'm in the middle of those claims. I think Irat is somewhere in the top half of the latter of RMC's. The first drop is great and is quite frankly one of RMC's best drops, the seats are comfy, has all the air you'd want in an RMC, and more. It has one inversion, but the hangtime is amazing because you're going so slow. This is also an issue. At the top of the wall, it is so slow. But after that, there's a great dive off the wall, and you even go inside the wall. You have to appreciate how well the ride interacts with the quarry wall, and makes for one of the best settings of any coaster. Overall, Irat is really awesome. It isn't the best rmc, but it's a really good one, and deserves some mored credit within the community.

    First Drop Location Ejectors Too short

    Iron Rattler is a masterpiece. If any coaster needed the RMC treatment, it was this one. An amazing concept executed very poorly by a bad manufacturer. RMC swooped in and turned this coaster into the masterpiece it was meant to me. The trains are the most open of any RMC, with great lap bars and open trains, allowing you to wave your hands however you please. It has the best first drop I've ever experienced on a coaster, twisting left and right down the quarry wall into the gulch, steep all the way down. There are four ejector hills, and a huge last drop off of the quarry wall into a tunnel, giving sustained ejector airtime all the way down. There are also four overbanked turns, all twisty and sharp, one if which drops down the wall of a curved overbanked drop. The barrel roll is perfect with its whip and its hangtime, and it's at the heart of the coaster, pulling the ride together to perfection. The coaster is unfortunately a bit shorter than I'd like, but it is oh so sweet and perfect otherwise.
