Rattlesnake (roller coaster)

Rattlesnake is a steel wild mouse style roller coaster ride which opened in 1998 at Chessington World of Adventures. Due to local planning restrictions (a result of the park being on green belt land) the land designated for the ride area was excavated, resulting in the ride being partially submerged below ground level. The layout consists of a steep lift hill, sharp turns and small airtime hills. Essentially, the rollercoaster starts slower and then starts dipping and twisting.
