In a state where "everything is bigger," it only makes sense that Texas would welcome the steepest dive coaster in the world to one of its theme parks.
This summer, Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio will open Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger. The 150-foot-tall coaster is a thrill seeker's dream.
Forget about the gut-wrenching drops on Cedar Point's giant Valravn coaster, or Busch Gardens Tampa Bay's popular SheiKra ride. When this thrilling adventure officially opens, it will apparently have the steepest drop of all dive coasters, putting even the record holder for tallest, longest and fastest dive coaster, Canada's Yukon Striker, to shame.
So, what can you expect? Fear! No really, Six Flags said it themselves.
On this menacing ride, you will blast through some giant, winding spirals, an Immelmann inversion and an impressive "beyond vertical" 95-degree plummet taken at a measly 60 mph. (Note the sarcasm.)
There's no real theme to the new ride, other than being a scary-AF cliffhanger created by an evil steampunk doctor named Dr. Diabolical, and she's pretty cruel.
The 21-passenger ride is the first of its kind to come to the Lone Star State. None of Texas' other theme parks have a dive coaster, so this will be a new experience for thrill-seeking Texans.
They must be uber excited for the opening because any time the park posts updates about the new ride on social media, fans flood the comments with two polarizing reactions: utter excitement or utter fear.
