walk up into a dark shanty house, get on board the car and be launched out by a Poltergeist! a definite must when visiting Six Flags Fiesta Texas, tight space, one of the few steel rides i wanna keep my hands in. very cool ride.

This ride is my favorite rollercoaster at the park!! This ride is very cool. I love how they fit all that track in so little space!! It is #4 on my Top Ten List! my favorite type of rollercoasters are ones that are launched out of the staions wit LIMs!

Lots of fun; themed well; and the launch is exhilirating. Very loopy as well, but my head got stuck in the under-wind. The lap-bar restraints are awesome as well. But, what I noticed is it pumps a lot and actually is...rough. Broken down 90% of the time as well. Fun ride, though.

A fun concept. The launch is pretty weak in comparison to most launches. But after that the ride turns into chaos. Quick turns constant elements one right after another. The final corkscrew coming back to the station is a good surprise that puts a fun finale on the ride.

What a rush. the launch isnt as powerful as I wanted, probably because Ive done TTD at Cedar Point but this was a fun ride. I suggest riding it later in the day and near the back. I rode it three times. the front was loads of fun, but the back made you feel so out of control. The columns were the best headchoppers Ive ever seen, this ride must have been a bitch to design.

Wow! Wow! Wow! The screetching, wailing, wooshing noise sounds like a ghost...and thats intimidating. But the ride twists, turns, teases and torments...even more intimidating than it sounds. Youll need a couple of seconds to get your bearings after you get off. Worth it!

A six in my book is good but not great. If there wasnt a slow part right in the middle of the ride, the whole ride-experience all together would be much better.

That magnetic induction 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds arrow-
from-the-bow launch is awesome! Not your standard roller coaster slow climb and rumbling drop. Think more like aircraft carrier steam catapault fighter aircraft launch. OK, Ill grant you the fighter is pulling 8 Gs, and the Poltergeist only about 4. But for most of us regular guys, thats a lot of Gs! And Gs is what you get on this ride. The ride does not occupy a whole lot of real estate but it does make a lot of twists, turns, climbs, and elevation changes. The forward speed is nowhere near supersonic, but the G forces make you glad they took out those skull-banging head restraints. That old head banger ride you most definitely would not want to do with a hangover. Matter of fact, if you have had a rough night-before, give the ground crew a break and let brains rule over guts so the contents of both can remain undisturbed.
