Defunct astroworld ride???

Saturday, April 13, 2002 8:59 PM

I was hoping that someone could clear something up for me. This is the first time I have ever posted a topic so bare with me.

When I was a kid, I remember rideing a bobsled type coaster with my mother and at the end of the ride it went very slow indoors so you could see some animatronics. I believe it went around and through a mountian like Matterhorn.

When I told my mother about this memery she said that she couldn't remember that ride. I distinctly remember it being at astroworld and it was about 1978-1980. I already looked at the rcdb and it didn't help. Does anyone know of such a ride?

It seems like Astroworld had some amazing and beautiful attractions. How could Six Flags remove those brilliant rides? I do remember those Adventure Rivers, they were some of the best water slides built. Torn down because of high maitainance, as much as they deal with all the other coasters in the park that break down every five minutes, they tear out one of the best attractions. How could they have removed Skyscreamer? Couldn't they just move it to another section of the park? Sure, they can build around Dr. Heide's Nasty Fall and Free Fall@SFMM , but they tear this one out.

Hate to ruin this moment but I thought every ride at Astroworld was defunct! (couldn't resist it)
