Do you think Austin Texas would be a good location for a theme park?

Austin is the capital of Texas the 11th largest city in the US with a great economy and the city is rapidly growing. I know some can argue why wouldn’t I say Houston needs a theme park well that’s because Grand Texas is on hold and is expected to open in the not too distant future. But I bring up Austin because the city has a promising future ahead it’s a great college town, nice music concerts, and great place for Arts if you like it. So why not Austin even if it’s a small theme park. San Antonio is an hour and a half away which has Six Flags and SeaWorld but I don’t see why a small or medium sized park can’t work.

Uh probably not Six Flags already has Texas covered for theme parks and there's already plenty of stuff to do in Austin as you listed. Theme parks don't exist in a bubble, and they don't just compete with each other. They compete with every form of entertainment.

I agree. As far as attractions go, Austin is known for bars, music, nightlife, good food, and bats. People that visit Austin for those things (generally) will not visit a theme park. People that live there know that they can visit 3 pretty good parks all within a couple hours drive. If and when Grand Texas opens, make that 4.

If a theme park would ever succeed in Austin, one would have already been built.

There's an FEC that has a Kiddie coaster, go-carts and an arcade. It was absolutely miserable with hordes of unsupervised kids just running about and cutting lines. No thanks.

P.S. Got that kiddie credit though. It's okay, our son was little at the time, I'm not a credit whore.

P.P.S. I'm totally a credit whore.
