Date of plate: 1968
Notes: Astroworld was an amusement park located in Houston, Texas, with eight themed areas, each with its own architecture, lighting, music and sound, cast wardrobe, unique shops and cuisine. Children's World, just one of the many venues within Astroworld, consisted of a classic Barnyard Petting Zoo, as well as having rides such as one called Rub-A-Dub, which was a waterboat tunnel ride through a series of Mother Goose stories.
In 1975, the Hofheinz family sold Astroworld to the Six Flags Corporation and the park eventually closed on October 30, 2005. The 109-acred park was demolished by Six Flags over the course of the next eight months at a cost of $20 million and the company received $77 million on the sale of the property.
