In a new court filing, Six Flags Over Texas argues it is not responsible for the death of a Dallas woman who fell off the Texas Giant in July.
In an answer to a lawsuit filed by the family of Rosy Esparza, the amusement park said it did not design or manufacture the roller coaster and that 2.5 million people had ridden the ride before without any problem.
Esparza, 52, died from "multiple traumatic injuries" when she fell 75 feet from the ride, the Tarrant County Medical Examiner's office said. Esparza's name was reported as Rosa Ayala-Goana in initial news reports.
Six Flags re-opened the Texas Giant the same day the lawsuit was filed.
It was Esparza's first visit to Six Flags, her family said.
