"Texas Giant" quiet, rest of Six Flags open for business.

One woman's ride on a roller coaster at Six Flags over Texas ended in tragedy Friday.

She was on the theme park's "Texas Giant" when witnesses say she fell to her death.

It is all quiet where the Texas Giant normally roars.

Someone laid flowers upfront on Saturday in honor of Rosy Esparza who fell off the ride and died friday night.

Family members tell us it was her first time at the park.

Meanwhile Six Flags has been giving out occasional updates. The latest statement is "We are committed to determining the cause of this tragic accident and will utilize every resource throughout this process."

Outside of the Texas Giant it was business as usual at Six Flags, something that surprised Zavante Mcgriff.

I was like somebody died and I thought the whole park would at least be closed down until next week or something.

Most we talked with saturday knew what happened the night before but were unfazed.

My mom told me about it and I was shocked and devastated about what happened.

But the Deleon's have been planning this trip for a while and Francis is a little uneasy.

I don't know. It's scary. I'm a very anxious person I don't know if I'm going to get on.

It's unclear how long the Texas Giant will stay closed. The Six Flags spokesperson made it clear they will not rush to comment on how this may have happened.
