Texas Giant roller coaster reopens with steel track at Six Flags Over Texas

Posted Friday, April 22, 2011 11:49 AM | Contributed by Jeff

The renovated Texas Giant roller coaster opens to the public today at Six Flags Over Texas. The Arlington theme park invested $10 million in redesigning the ride, which has a new track layout and new cars modeled after the 1961 Cadillac DeVille. The new ride, which lasts about two minutes, includes a 79-degree first drop and a bank of 95 degrees.

True but a solid milled piece of wood isn't really anything close to a hollow rectangular tubular steel track.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

How about a 3rd category of coaster? Or a third or fourth? Does there only have to be 2? Is that plastic coaster still around? How bout that concrete coaster in Spain ;)


edit - Six Flags on the New Texas Giant NOT being a wooden coaster - for purists:
