The New Texas Giant's First Run

Six Flags Over Texas has sent the New Texas Giant's trains on their maiden voyage around the ride's course.  The park took video of the first run, which they have posted for fans to view.

Even though the train that was sent is only two cars long they still fly around the track at a great speed.  I also noticed that you can hear the train as it passes over the sections of fabricated steel track, which was unexpected.  Reminds me a little of a railroad train going by!

The New Texas Giant is sure to be one of the most anticipated ride openings of 2011.  I'm looking forward to when more testing video surfaces.

The ride looks like a fun experience, but the physical appearance of the ride - wood with red metal tracking - kind of looks odd.
