59. Make Yourself Sick Riding Every Six Flags Fiesta Texas Roller Coaster

When The Rattler was first built, the initial near-vertical drop had to be modified. Rumor in the schoolyard then was that the heads flew right off the test dummies. Well, as of 2012, Fiesta Texas’ signature coaster is no more. It’s been replaced with the even more menacing Iron Rattler, and that steep drop has returned. Spend the day trying to get your stomach to hate you, and ride the theme park’s seven — soon to be eight — roller coasters. We’ve got the aforementioned Iron Rattler; the head-spinning, looping Boomerang; the inverted steel Goliath, the spinning Pandemonium; the Poltergeist, which zips to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds; the cartoon-themed Roadrunner Express; and the Superman: Krypton Coaster, featuring the world’s tallest vertical loop. Summer 2015 brings the absolutely bonkers-looking Batman: The Ride. Enjoy them all, but don’t expect your stomach to thank you. 17000 I-10 W. (210) 697-5050, sixflags.com/fiestatexas
