Six Flags AstroWorld to close at end of 2005 season
Posted by: Webmaster | 13 September 2005 14:48

The 109-acre site will be marketed to the real estate development. Proceeds from the sale would be used for debt reduction and general corporate purposes, the company said. Factors contributing to the decision to sale included the park's relative performance over the past several years and continued uncertainty over offsite parking rights related to Reliant Stadium and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo. The sale is subject to the approval of Six Flags' bank lenders.

Kieran Burke, chairman and CEO of Six Flags said ''A unique set of circumstances applies to the AstroWorld property and this action should not be considered indicative of our intentions for any of our other parks.''

    Well, I guess I should consider myself lucky. I am attending a conference in Houston from October 18-22. I will be able to visit this park and at it to my list before it's gone. I just hope I can find some decent quality in it to remember it by.
