Six Flags Over Texas, Arlington, Texas, United States
Titan is a steel hyper coaster located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas. Unlike most hypercoasters, Titan is a combination of an out and back roller coaster and a twister roller coaster. Standing 245 feet and with a 255 drop it is among the top ten fastest coasters in the World and features one of the longest drops.
Ride Experience And Facts:
The Titan has been known for occasionally causing blackouts in the carousel turn. Some riders have complained about headaches caused by sections of the course. Most of these incidents occur during the summer when riders are dehydrated due to the extreme Texas sun.
Because of the number of guests that have complained about the G-force given during the second helix, operators have changed the speed at which the train leaves the mid-course brake run to almost stopping.Titan operators never allow re-rides due to the extreme g forces on the carousel turns. You must always exit the ride again before riding the coaster another time.
