Titan (Six Flags Over Texas) overview.jpg

Titan is a Giovanola hyper roller coaster located at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington, Texas, USA. Opened in 2001, the ride is almost identical to Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain, but it is elevated 10 feet higher and has a 540 degree upward helix before the mid-course brakes.

History

The attraction was announced in November 2000.[1] It opened on April 27, 2001.

Design

Elements

Titan is 245 feet tall with a 255 foot drop at an angle of 65 degrees into a 120 foot long tunnel.[1] A large turnaround follows, and then an airtime hill. Riders ascend the 540 degree upward helix before hitting the mid-course brake run. After a small drop and overbanked turn, riders are thrown into the ride's 570 degree downward helix finale, which pulls 4.5 G's for nearly 6 seconds. A banked left turn follows, and then riders glide into the final brake run.

Color scheme

Orange track and blue supports.

Trains

3 trains with 5 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 3 rows, for a total of 30 riders per train.
