Six Flags denies liability in death of woman who fell off roller coaster

DALLAS, TX

Six Flags filed its response Oct. 4 in district court in Tarrant County to the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of Rosa Esparza. Esparza fell 75 feet to her death while riding the Texas Giant roller coaster in July at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington. The ride reopened in September.

The company said it followed maintenance and inspection procedures recommended by manufacturer Gerstlauer Amusement Rides. It also pointed out that about 2.5 million people had been on the roller coaster before the incident.
