Six Flags Astroworld in Houston, TX (the third largest collection of coasters in the country) has removed the classic Sky Needle. The large tower was moved to a new Six Flags park in Mexico City. The tower/observation ride was popular with the park goers because of the view it offered of the park and the city skyline.
