Six Flags Ride Reopens After July Death

Six Flags in Arlington has reopened the Texas Giant roller coaster Saturday for the first time since a rider died in July.

There are new precautions and warnings for riders including redesigned restraint bars and new seat belts, as well as a trial seat that riders could sit in before entering the line -- and a warning that it might not accommodate -QUOTE- "guests with unique body shapes or sizes."

The ride has been closed since Rosa Ayala-Goana fell to her death two months ago. Her family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the amusement park.
