Heard yesterday that people were stuck on the Texas Giant for 30 minutes before having to CLIMB DOWN 14 STORIES! NYAAAAH...We have season passes and almost went, and I always go on that ride. I like a good roller coaster, but I don't ever want to have to climb down off of one....glad no one was hurt, but I'm sure plenty were traumatized.

    I would lose my MIND! lol they'd have to get me off of it in one of those fireman baskets. haha! We were at Six Flags (arlington) on the super man tower thing & the tower across from us the people got stuck up there & I was in a panic! Plus you can hear the metal cables whipping behind your head. NO THANK YOU! I used to ride everything there not now, too old I guess. lol

    They had to walk all the way back down the tracks, is what I read. We were actually there last week and didn't go on it because we ran out of time. My kid's first time there, I used to go every summer. I couldn't imagine walking down those tracks...
