Six Flags Fiesta Texas closing wooden coaster

Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio says the ride will shut down Aug. 5.

Park officials on Monday announced the timetable but did not say why the 180-foot-high coaster, which includes nearly a mile of turns, twists and drops, will close. No information was released on whether a replacement ride is in the works.

The Rattler has been operating since Six Flags Fiesta Texas opened in 1992.
