Thrill-seekers expected Six Flags AstroWorld's rides to end up at other theme parks, but now one of those is finding itself somewhere no one expected.
Bits and pieces of the defunct amusement park are working their way to Clute, where they will be placed in a planned dive park at Mammoth Lake. A mock space shuttle that once was a loop ride was deposited beside the sand pit. Soon, it will be placed thirty feet underwater. Six Flags Astroworld closed in 2005. Since the park has been closed, reports and rumors have flown around about where the rides and buildings would be relocated to. Well, the soon to be dive park plans to place rides from Astroworld under the water. There, wannabe scuba divers can train for their certification. Here, they can dive and swim with the rides. “We’ve got a bunch of boats that we’re going to put together and call it the Bermuda Triangle,” said Michelle Crier. There is no official word yet on what more rides will be coming to this lake.
