It’s a good thing you didn’t get stuck on that sexiest of sexiest rides. A quick fing tidbit is that the Cajun Cliffhanger was not the only hulking ride in the park.

Earlier this summer, a 52-year-old woman from Dallas, Texas died when she fell from the new Texas Giant roller coaster at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. The woman was riding the coaster with her daughter and son-in-law.
The woman’s body was found on the ride tunnel. She had fallen 75 feet from the roller coaster before she hit a metal beam. The autopsy revealed extensive trauma to the torso.
According to a witness, the woman was not properly secured in her seat. She was not buckled in or secured in any way. She complained about the lack of restraint and tried to get off the coaster before it started. Several other witnesses said that the woman’s leg stubbed out too far when the gates closed.
The park shut down the ride several times over the weekend for routine procedures. The ride has been operating at 60 miles per hour. After the ride stopped, workers directed paramedics to the woman’s location.
