SAN ANTONIO – The iconic San Antonio roller coaster called The Rattler made its final run Sunday night at Six Flags Fiesta Texas.

The wooden coaster has been a landmark at Fiesta Texas for 20 years. It opened when Fiesta Texas opened in 1992, and at the time was the only coaster at the park.

Hundreds enjoyed a final ride Sunday until the lights went out on the coaster just after 10 p.m. Fiesta Texas officials have not said if they plan to replace it.
