Long Lost Fiesta Texas Proposed Concept Coaster by TOGO
Last week, Coaster Nation presented the long-lost Kings Island Cat and Mouse concept. This week, we have another never built coaster — this one from Fiesta Texas.
In the late 1990’s Fiesta Texas was in a rapid expansion. The park originally opened with two coasters in 1992. In 1995 they were acquired by Six Flags, who proceeded to make large changes with the park. From 1996-1999 the park added four coasters over that time span, and were looking for a new coaster in the year 2000.
From surviving evidence, it is pretty clear Six Flags wanted the coaster to sit on the quarry wall, with drops and inversions taking full advantage of the terrain. As it currently stands, there were two potential company’s bidding on manufacturing the coaster: B&M and TOGO. B&M proposed a floorless coaster that had multiple inversions, multiple drops, and an elevated helix that made great use of the quarry.
TOGO proposed a sit-down coaster that took riders to the top of the quarry, and then dropped them over the side. Riders would be flung into a 900 degree helix, then went over several airtime hills on top of the quarry. Then the ride dove into a loop, followed by a heavily banked turn into an underwater tunnel. From there, riders would enter a 540 degree helix, before making a quick turn under the lift hill to reach the brake run.
At the end of the day, the B&M ride was chosen, and it became Superman Krypton Coaster. We recreated the TOGO concept below! Take a virtual ride now!
