Six Flags to reopen Texas ride where woman died

 

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Six Flags Over Texas is reopening the ride from which a park-goer fell to her death this summer.

The Dallas-area amusement park announced Tuesday that the Texas Giant roller coaster will reopen this weekend. The ride will have new seat belts and redesigned restraint bar pads.

Six Flags says its investigation into the July incident found no mechanical failure on the ride. The family of the woman who died after falling from the ride has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the amusement park company.

The company says in a statement that people with "unique body shapes or sizes" may not fit into the ride seat. It will now offer a roller coaster seat on the ride line for riders to judge for themselves in advance if they fit.
