Six Flags Joins Lawsuit Filed by Family of Woman Killed on Texas Giant

Six Flags Over Texas, after denying any liability in the death of 52-year-old Rosa Esparza--the woman who fell 75 feet to her death while riding on the Texas Giant roller coaster last summer--has joined a lawsuit filed by her family against Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.
Six Flags Over Texas, after denying any liability in the death of 52-year-old Rosa Esparza--the woman who fell 75 feet to her death while riding on the Texas Giant roller coaster last summer--has joined a lawsuit filed by her family against Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.

Six Flags alleges the roller coaster was defective when the incident happened.

Six flags re-opened the ride last fall after it implemented new safety measures, including re-designed restraint pads and new seat belts.

The woman's family is suing six flags in addition to Gerstlauer Amusement Rides.

An attorney for Gerstlauer told a Fort Worth newspaper that the filing is a contract maneuver by Six Flags under its purchase contract and is "pretty standard" in such cases.
