Long time site lurker. I just had to say those picts of Astroworld are amazing! I grew up there and I miss that park so much!

Hey Shane;
Thanks for a great end to another great season. I really liked the videos too. Those are really good helicopter shots. Some Nice footage of lighting also. Again thanks for sharing all this it's great.

Shane,

Have you ever considered making a Shane's Amusement Attic website?

BTW, there's a SF Houston member who really wants to contact you to see if you have certain video footage. Would you mind PMing your email address to me?

Here is an AstroWorld encore. I forgot to post this one brochure from the park, the year the Mayan Mindbender opened.

Here is it, the only AstroWorld coaster that still runs today. One out of Ten, that is not a good thing.

Notice that this is NOT the actual Greezed Lightnin' ride. It is the Tidal Wave at Marriott's Great America Santa Clara. It just has the yellow lead car.

Although I LOVE AstroWord, I think the comparison to Disneyland is a little bit of a stretch

I never went to AstroWorld, but I did have the pleasure of riding Batman--The Escape. Only it was called Shock Wave and was at SFMM! :lolr:

Keep up the great work, Shane. These retro park visits have been a lot of fun!
