    The Iron Rattler roller coaster at Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio has reopened after being temporarily closed after a woman fell and died from a similar coaster in Arlington earlier this summer.

    The Iron Rattler reopened Wednesday at Six Flags Fiesta Texas, one month after a woman fell to her death from the Texas Giant at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.

    A Fiesta Texas statement said the ride was reopened after it was checked out thoroughly to assure it was safe to ride.

    Seatbelts have been added to the seats as an added safeguard.

    Meanwhile, the Texas Giant remains closed at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.
