Dallas, TX -- It boasts the steepest drop of any wooden roller-coaster anywhere, 79-degrees.  And it was during that drop that Rosa Esparza was flung out of the car and killed on July 19th.  

This week her family sued Six Flags, on the same day the park announced the ride would reopen Sunday with some new safety measures.

Before there was only the T-bar to keep you in.  Now Six Flags has added seat belts.  It also provides new warning lights to make sure the T-bar is snug.

Seats are contoured, no longer bench-style. People who are regular riders say they got the thrill they were looking for.
