Texas Tornado

These loops are very strange.  The ride's first inversion, the vertical loop on the right, has the train exit the loop much higher than the loop's entrance.  During testing, the train had difficulty climbing the double-up hill after the loop, so the track at the bottom of the loop was raised up several feet from the support structure.  The train also had problems completing the second loop, so its track was altered too.  The radius of the loop was significantly shortened, and the tubular supports were added between the track and the box-beam loop support structure.
