Cliff's Amusement Park has been a park that has been on radar for years, but we never could exactly line up the appropriate trip to come visit. This year, we made it a purpose to finally stop by, and we are glad we did.

New Mexico Rattler is an awesome wooden coaster designed by CCI that is still running great. Around the ride is a wonderful family run amusement park and small water park that is being kept up nicely and offers a nice escape from the New Mexico desert.

Besides Rattler, Cliff's other attractions include a Galaxi coaster, log flume, train ride and an impressive amount of flats.

CliffHanger is a solid drop ride. (Get the pun in the name)

The train has an extensive layout that makes its way through the entire park.

The queue is one of the stranger ones we've seen. Three separate queues from the beginning for the front, middle, and back cars.

As you can see, the Rattler sure does wind its way across most of the park.

These SBF Visa spinning coasters sure are becoming popular installations.
