SAN ANTONIO, Texas -- What's touted as the steepest-dive roller coaster in the world is riding into Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio.

The roller coaster, Dr. Diabolical's Cliffhanger, will feature a "cliffhanger hold" that suspends riders as they head face-first down a 95-degree, beyond-vertical drop. Moments later, they'll enter a 150-foot dive.

The coaster is set to debut in the summer of 2022.
