Worlds of Fun 1981
I always love a good AstroWorld
post and yes I am amazed that a market as large as Houston is now without a park. Almost as good as AstroWorld
is Worlds of Fun
circa 1980's. World's of Fun always seemed a small park that kept up with the big boys. Think about it, they were one of the firsts to feature a Corkscrew roller coaster and then they followed it up with one of the greatest coasters of the early 80's, The Orient Express! Along with AstroWorld
they were one of the first parks to feature a waterpark side by side with the theme park.
Well how do you follow up the success of "The Orient Express"??? How about with a Cinema 180? Well not so good as it seemed attendance was never as high in the 80's as when the Orient Express opened. I am still trying to understand why Cedar Fair took that ride out. The park has never been the same since Cedar Fair took it over...It has become a stip mall park like the rest of the other Cedars.
Here's a look back to the year 1981 and what the park had to offer.
