Texas Tornado

Built by Schwarzkopf in 1986, Thriller (its original name before moving to Texas) traveled to many German carnivals.  It ran at over 100 locations until finally settling down here as Taz's Texas Tornado in  1998.  This was the coaster's 122nd assembly!  The Taz portion of the name was dropped after its first season at AstroWorld.
