FORT WORTH — On the same day that Six Flags Over Texas announced the reopening of the Texas Giant, the family of a Dallas woman killed in July in a fall from the roller coaster sued the amusement park, saying park operators were negligent in not having an adequate restraint system in place despite previous fatalities at other parks.

Rosa Esparza, 52, of Dallas was killed July 19 on her first visit to the amusement park in Arlington. The suit says Esparza was upside down in her seat and holding on for “dear life” before she was thrown to her death.
