15 Years Ago, on October 30 2005, Six Flags Astroworld (opened on June 1 1968) in Houston, Texas closed its gates for the final time.
Some rides were moved to other parks but the rest were demolished and scrapped including the Texas Cyclone wooden coaster.
Here's the site so far...
Just a few weeks ago, the Rock-N-Rollercoaster which opened in 2002 has played its last song by Aerosmith.:eek:
And now hoardings have been erected in front of the entrance.
I've read on YouTube that it could be re-themed to Iron Man to suit the Marvel Super Hero scene more.
I'm afraid the USA...

Come Friday the 1st of June and we'll honor Six Flags Astroworld (June 1 1968 - October 30 2005) in Houston, Texas with the 50th Anniversary of its Grand Opening!
