Woman Falls To Her Death From Six Flags Texas Giant Roller Coaster Horrible Accident Fail

A woman riding a roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas, plummeted to her death Friday evening July 19th 2013 around 6:45. She was strapped into her seat next to her son. Witnesses say "We heard her screaming. We were like, 'Did she just fall?'" It happened on The Texas Giant, the tallest steel-hybrid roller coaster in the world. The Texas Giant debuted in 2011, after Rocky Mountain Construction rebuilt a steel track atop the original wooden structure built by the Dinn Corporation. It reaches a height of 153 feet with a drop of 147 feet and a top speed of 62 miles per hour. The coaster does not invert, and offers a lap bar as a safety restraint. Six Flags sent out the following statement: We are deeply saddened to share that earlier this evening an adult woman died in the park while on the Texas Giant. Park medical staff and local paramedics responded immediately. Since the safety of our guests and employees is our number one priority, the ride has been closed pending further investigation. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends during this difficult time. the ride was immediately shut down after the accident and park goers were quickly moved away from the area. Emergency responders arrived but it took them awhile to actually locate the victim. When it opened in 1990, the Texas Giant was billed as the tallest wooden roller coaster in the world. The ride closed for the 2010 season in which the all-wooden track was replaced with a new prefabricated steel system. The new Texas Giant reopened to the public in 2011. According to the Six Flags website, the new ride has "beyond vertical" banked turns and the steepest drop of any wooden coaster at 79-degrees. The original Texas Giant cost $5.5 million dollars. The refurbishment cost an additional $10 million. In 1999, a 28-year-old Arkansas woman drowned and 10 other passengers were injured when a raft-like boat on the Roaring Rapids ride at Six Flags overturned in 2 to 3 feet of water about 200 feet from the end of the ride. http://twitter.com/WackyWeazle http://facebook.com/wacky.weazle https://plus.google.com/106514532726205063691 Visit http://www.MotionPictureArt.com for all your original movie posters and more.
