Wednesday, September 28, 2005 10:45 PM
i got a parking idea what if they make that big empty lot behind waterworld to a parking aera and then remove the amphitheatre to make it a parking aera too and then remove the A&W ranch to make it one big parking aera and make a south entrance wheir the old XLR8 exit uses to be, and use the front entrance and the brige for walkers, sound good? does somebody got a idea?

Astroworld is gone, face reality. Many of the rides are already finding their way on to lists of "New Attractions" at other Six Flags parks for 2006. Sorry, but it's just not ganna happen.

If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

Mamoosh's avatar Skuller - I'm sure if anyone had ideas they would have given them to you already. Fact is the park is closing...trying to find a solution to their parking problem is a moot point now.

But I, for one, appreciate your effort.

I for one, will echo what Mamoosh said in that he appreciates your efforts.

It is kind of sad that the 4th largest city in the country is losing an amusement park. However, if the city isn't willing to budge in the parking issue, why should SF continue to operate?

On a positive note, even after hurricane Rita, the park will open for Fright Fest, so get out there and enjoy the park before it becomes a memory.

Six Flags Astroworld will be gone, no getting around it. They could have solved the parking problem if they wanted to any number of ways but chose to ignore it.

Its sad, The park i have been going to for 37 years will be gone. Its hard to accept but it is reality.

What makes it harder is seeing Six Flags invest so much in other parks and seeing the rides divided by enthusiasts before the gates are even closed.

I remember a time when we would all mourn a park closing.

Yup SFAW is gone,history,finito,outta there.

You can come up with solutions for the parking problems that were just one of the nails in the coffin for the park but unless you can convince corporate that such plans are a viable alternative it's time to pack in the towel & face reality that SFAW is soon to wwrap up it's last season.

With the mandatory need to rebuild SFNO I have a feeling we'll be seeing many of SFAW's rides being sent there....still there's always hope that SF will "share the wealth" evenly throughout the chain,save for the 3 parks already getting coasters of course(SFMM,SFOG,SFGRADV).

Well I doubt that SFA is going to get anything too soon, if that is what you mean BWF. By the way, if you pack in the towel, how will anyone know you want to stop the fight?

I'm all for my local park (SFGAm) getting new rides, but never at the expense of another park's demise.

Has there really been any "official" chatter (from Six Flags -- not us) about the movement of the SFAW's rides?

" Yup SFAW is gone,history,finito,outta there. "

As a Six Flags, this is definitely the case. Not 100% ruled out that someone else may operate the park, but admittedly pretty unlikely. If however Cedar or someone wanted to invest in the place there are parking solutions that would free the place from the City/Reliant parking tyranny.

And I'd sure like to see someone backup that claim that the Astroworld rides are already appearing on the 2006 lineup for other parks. Yeah, I expect it to happen as well, but it hasn't been announced just yet.

Kind of. In a news article, an AstroWorld/Six Flags Inc. spokesperson was quoted on how the park's "current assetts (which I believe to be the rides) will eventually be dismantled and distributed to other Six Flags properties." Something along those lines.

Yes, there has been "official" chatter about the movement of the SFAW rides:

"The company plans to move some of its equipment from AstroWorld to the Six Flags SplashTown water park in Houston." (From the AP)

I'm guessing that doesn't EXACTLY answer your question, but any more talk about movement of rides would be "revealing sensitive information about the 2006 capital expenditure in a highly competitive industry" as Burke would say, so I wouldn't expect to hear much more until individual parks start announcing their plans. Personally, I feel that this is why we found out so little about the addition to SFGAdv beyond El Toro. I mean, they have two completly new themed section (Bugs Bunny National Park and Plaza del Carnaval), yet there really isn't any mention about what will be in these sections ride wise beyond El Toro. I highly suspect that some attractions may have been last minute additions from SFAW.


If you can't stand the heights, get out of the line.

I dont know about the other stuff but i do think it will be dismantled and bought down to sfno.

also the best rides there will be leaving anyway . you know that sf will take the best rides if somebody buys the park as it is.

Even Daniel Snyder's gone quiet on the "CF is interested" rants. It's time we did, too.

You know, as pretty as it is, I wouldn't consider SWAT one of the best rides.
