The current version of this description is at Texas Giant.The Texas Giant closed at the end of 2009 and was rebuilt for the 2011 season with a $10 million upgrade.
The roller coaster's original wooden tracks were replaced with steel tracks, which were fitted to the ride's original wooden support structure.
The new Iron Horse Coaster track offers a 79-degree drop and 95-degree banked turn. The coaster is also 10 feet taller and runs faster than before. -- Last edited by James Rao on April 24, 2011
