Titan is a massive, steel hypercoaster located within the Texas section of the park. One of the largest roller coasters ever built by Six Flags Theme Parks, Titan stands a towering 245 feet above the ground and reaches speeds of 85 mph. The first drop takes riders into an underground tunnel, making the first drop a total of 255 feet. The ride was manufactured by the now-defunct Swiss coaster creator Giovanola for an estimated price of $25 million. The supports alone consist of 2.8 million pounds of steel.
The ride features an airtime hill and two intense helixes, the second of which is notorious for causing some riders to feel light-headed due to the constant G-force. Since its opening, the park adjusted Titan's midcourse brake to slow the train to a near halt in order to reduce the effects of the second helix.
Titan has an almost identical layout as the Goliath roller coaster at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California, with the exception of Titan being 10 feet taller and having an additional helix before the midcourse brake.
A combination of the ride's high speed and the hot Texas weather has caused problems with melting wheels in the past, resulting in water misters being installed along the brake run in order to cool the wheels down as the trains finish cycling.
