Poltergeist is an exciting roller coaster located at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio. Poltergeist is one of 4 "spaghetti-bowl" coasters in the United States. Its clone, Joker's Jinx is located at Six Flags America in Maryland. Spaghetti bowl coasters are defined by their twisting tracks. Featuring multiple sharp turns and inversions, the compact design certainly ups the ante as far as thrills are concerned. Poltergeist utilizes a LIM (linear induction motor) launching system as opposed to a traditional lift hill. Riders are shot out of the station house and reach speeds of 60 mph within seconds.
Poltergeist is a wild and exciting ride for anyone looking for serious thrills.
