Slogan: "The Texas Giant has awakened—higher, faster and smoother than ever."

This steel-wood hybrid has been open in one form or another since 1990. When it initially debuted, the Texas Giant was an all-wooden roller coaster. Several minor renovations led to an expansive overhaul that was completed in 2011, taking the coaster from an aging wooden ride into a world-class attraction. The unique renovation history of the Texas Giant makes it one of the only coasters in history to win awards for both best wooden coaster and best steel coaster.
