Crews at Six Flags over Texas will be testing the Texas Giant on Friday with plans to reopen the ride Saturday.
Six Flags issued a statement saying the roller coaster did pass state inspection and mechanical failure was ruled out.
However, the safety restraint bar on the ride was redesigned and now each car has seat belts.
Ken Martin, an amusement ride inspector from Virginia, said seat belts are a good fix.
"Adding a seat belt to an amusement ride is just a better way to guarantee that you're going to stay in your seat," said Martin.
Six Flags also said it is providing a coaster seat at the ride entrance so guests can test their fit prior to entering the ride line.
Martin said that's a good idea and very common throughout other amusement parks.
The company said park workers fixed a defective part on the ride after the accident.
