Liability Case Over Death At Six Flags

Court documents indicate Six Flags denies any liability in the death of a rider on one of its roller coasters because it was not the manufacturer or designer.

Six Flags filed its response in district court in Tarrant County for 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 2013.  The ride reopened in September of 2013.

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