Last but not least, my top favorite roller coaster out of my top 3 favorite rides, The New Texas Giant, which I got to ride last, because I wanted to save the best for last, get this, I rode this at night in the cold in 45 degree weather, it was worth it though, altough I rode it at night, I took this picture during the day because of test run's were going on before the ride opened.

The Texas Giant originally was a pure wooden roller coaster when it first opened in 1990, closed in 2009 for renovations, and was being remodeled throughout the hole season of 2010. The renovations involved the removal of the wooden track and replacement with Rocky Mountain Construction's I-Box steel track. It reopened for the 2011 season in time for the park's 50th anniversary including a new track design and trains on April 22, 2011. It is currently the tallest steel-hybrid roller coaster in the world at a height of 153 ft, which features a 79° drop of 147 ft, and enters 3 tunnels, the first 2 which enters lazered light shows.

Texas Giant's sister coaster, The Rattler, will undergo a similar transformation before opening in spring 2013 as Iron Rattler, which is located in San Antonio, Texas.

Great, it looks like a lot of fun to me, since mainly I am a fan of all types of roller coasters, and the fact of the heart pounding it gives you before you take off, get launched, or take your first high drop!
