The Texas Giant has awakened - higher, faster and smoother than ever.
The legendary new Texas Giant delivers beyond vertical banked turns and the world's steepest drop. This new super hybrid boasts a state-of-the-art track of steel fabrication, with the steepest drop of any wooden coaster at 79°. The lift hill is 10 feet taller than the original Texas Giant.
The new ride also has a record-breaking bank of 95°, steeper than any other wooden coaster on the planet.
