Texas Giant

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.

This first use of Rocky Mountain Construction's new I-Box track offers a 79-degree drop and 95-degree banked turn. The coaster is also 10 feet taller and runs faster than before.

Rated the 6th best "steel" coaster on the planet by Amusement Today (2011). -- Last edited by James Rao on September 20, 2011
