AstroWorld was started in 1968 by Judge Roy Hofheinz, the former owner of the Houston Astros baseball team. It was the amusement compliment to his Astrodomain complex which included the Astrodome sports stadium and the Astrohall convention center. It started out with only a few rides and no roller coasters.
In 1975, the park was leased to the Six Flags Corporation and became the fourth park of the Six Flags family and the first Six Flags park not to be built by Six Flags themselves. Over the years, the park has accumulated nine rollercoasters and many thrill rides. The newest attractions, SWAT and Diablo Falls, opened in 2003 for the park's 35th anniversary.



Kemah Construction Update!
So as you may or may not have heard, they're building a Gravity Group woodie in Kemah. Kemah has yet to announce this, but Amusement Today sort of made the announcement for them. It's well under construction, and I went out there today to get a few pictures of the progress. Click here for the update.
