A settlement has been reached between Six Flags, the Texas Giant manufacturer, and the family of the woman killed while riding a roller coaster in 2013, according to FOX DFW. The family of Rosa Esparza filed the lawsuits after Esparza fell 75 feet from the Texas Giant Roller Coaster at the Six Flags in Arlington. The settlement, whose details have not been made public, will mark the end of a long battle between the three parties; Six Flags had previously claimed that the cars on the ride were defective, while the manufacturer, Gerstlaurer, claimed that Six Flags had opted not to put seat belts on the ride and had not used the test seat until after the fatality. All parties have expressed appreciation that the settlement was finalized.
