Six Flags / Astroworld is closing after 37 years. The property it is sitting on is worth roughly $110 million, or $1 million an acre.
I haven’t been in years and years. The rides were shorter, the lines were longer, it had a “hoodlum” feel about it, the gift shops were full of overpriced trinkets. Oh, and I’m older so the rides made me nauseous. I’m not going to miss it except for driving by and seeing a roller coaster in action.
