    Comfort Fun Duration Disappointing! Pointless Airtimes

    good coaster. not aggressive at all, and easily weakest rmc, and thats not debatable. this coaster was extremely overhyped, but it gave nothhing more than flojector.

    This ride is absolutley fantastic. While it is the weakest RMC I've ridden, it's still a fantastic ride. It provides some excellent ejector and flojector moments throughout a long and very fun layout. The only flaw is that some of the airtime moments didn't really do much for me and only gave some fairly weak airtime. However, for being the first RMC, this is an awesome ride

    Airtimes Fun Ejectors Layout

    New texas giant proves that a prototype can hold it's own against later rides of the same model! This was the first rmc and it holds up as an amazing ride, this ride may be weaker than some of its counterparts but you just cant go wrong with an rmc. The airtime is solid in the front but I dare say elite in the back. The first drop is a strong pop of ejector and that will be a common theme throughout the ride. Unfortunately the repetitive over banks in place of inversion are what make me give this a 9 out of ten, still an awesome and must do at six flags over texas!

    Airtimes First Drop Duration Dead spots

    HOLY MOLY is this thing good. I like the design of the trains and how it is themed to a Cadillac. This thing is smooth too. The first drop is spectacular and gives loads of air in the back car. The First step up to the overbank is excellent and the overbank gives you good sideways zero-g. The next overbank is very whippy and gives you ejector the way through. The next overbank is coo and provides good head-choppers. The next hill is probably the best airtime moment on the ride. This hill is taken fat and gives you a good 2 and a half seconds of sustained ejector air. The midcourse brakes thankfully do nothing and the next dive is great in the back. The next 2 hills give you fantastic ejector and whip. The next 2 hills aren't as strong but provide some great floater airtime. The last set of hills is a good lifter (flo-jector airtime). The tunnels are cool and overall this ride is great and the best coaster in the park.

    Some say that your first RMCs will be your favorites. In my case it's absolutely true. New Texas Giant was my first ever RMC, and as I await the opening of Iron Gwazi, it's currently my second favorite. There's so much to love with this ride. An awesome first drop, unbeatable enormous overbanks, and lots of airtime, especially in the second half. The pacing isn't balls to the wall, but not boring either, and for my taste that's perfect. But what really gives this ride its charm is that it feels more Texas than any other coaster in the state. It's big, with wooden structure and weathered steel track, and it's built over a creek. The foliage is low to the ground, but overgrown, crawling up the structure. There's a flaming oil derrick, rustic tunnels with red white and blue flashing lights, and the trains are hot rods. Most importantly, like everything else in Texas, it's BIG.

    Airtimes Comfort Duration

    This is a ride that surpassed my expectations. I expected this to be my least favorite RMC coaster with its lack of inversions and repetitive layout. But I actually liked this more then Twisted Cyclone and Storm Chaser. The airtime is very strong and never lets up. There is some great whippy moments with a fantastic first drop and a nice finale with the two tunnels. I also like the Gerstlauer trains more then the RMC trains with their heavy restraints. I thought these trains were much more comfortable.

    The Layout is amazing and definitely a defining coaster for RMC as a whole.

    4.5 out of 5, I love this coaster and with it being one of the first ones by RMC did a great job. The back is the place to be on this one.

    Airtimes First Drop Duration Dead spots Intensity

    This ride is really smooth and provides so much airtime. But at the same time there is a lack of intensity and it has a really weak second half. The first drop whips you over if you’re in the back and the sideways airtime on the banked turns is amazing. I have only ridden two RMCs and while this is considered weaker and it is a weaker RMC it still lands in my top 5. Restraints were very comfortable and so was just the entire seat. Some inversions could’ve improved the ride’s intensity and it could have better pacing but overall it still is a re rideable coaster with great airtime.

    New Texas Giant was the first RMC, and it’s not half bad! I really enjoyed the first half — the awesome first drop, step up into the series of enjoyable high-flying overbanked turns combined with the mental bunny hill before the mid-course brake run just keeps getting better and better. Unfortunately, after the mid-course New Texas Giant feels much less like an RMC and a lot more like a family ride with airtimeless hill after airtimeless hill. Only the last three or four hills just before the final brake run give airtime, and it’s floater at that. Still, New Texas Giant is very long when compared to the other two RMC’s I’ve ridden — Twisted Cyclone and Lightning Rod — but everything before the mid-course is awesome, yet everything after it... not so much.

    First Drop Duration Theming Pointless Dead spots

    The new Texas giant is a decent ride however is far from being the best RMC. The first drop is fantastic As no matter where you are sitting you will get a burst of Airtime. After that you go over a speed hill And then through some overbanks Which are pretty good elements. After that the ride completely loses its steam. The second half of the ride features many dead spots and Loses nearly all of its Pacing. The coaster is traveling at the speed of a mine train Or a bit slower like a family coaster. And through the second half there are barely any elements except for a few tunnels The only elements which were pretty decent in the second half are the few bunny ejectors at the end. The theming Was very confusing it had a coaster themed to a Cadillac With a chicken coop in the station. Also the trains have windows on them which I think is a bit odd considering very few coasters really do that. This RMC was the prototype And you can see why. However it is still a good ride and if you’re in the area you should definitely go on it

    Airtimes First Drop Ejectors Inversions

    Riding New Texas Giant in 28 degree weather in December to me will be one of my defining moments as an enthusiast. For as long as i'll live, I will remember my Californian self shivering in the station. Anyways, lets talk about the ride. You go down the drop, get your fix of ejector airtime, and go over some nice hills. Now, on most RMC's, this would be an inversion, here, it's just a big overbank. And this a pattern you'll see over the ride unfourtanately. The lack of inversions hurts the ride. However, towards the end, you have these floater air hills through these tunnels. Aside from the start, this is the best part of the ride in my eyes. Overall, i'd consider it as of now my least favorite RMC. However, it's still awesome. Solid A.
