Six Flags Over Texas Joins Fatal Fall Suit

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- The Six Flags theme park and the family of a Dallas woman who fell from the Texas Giant and died are going after the roller coaster's maker.

Rosa Esparza fell 75-feet from the Texas Giant roller coaster in July 2013 and died.

The woman's family sued Six Flags and coaster maker Gerstlauer Amusement Rides in State District Court.

Six Flags, which denied any liability, has now joined in the lawsuit against the German company.

The suit alleges that the company's creation is "an unreasonably dangerous in design."
