Boardwalk Bullet Opens at Kemah's

The Boardwalk Bullet opened at Kemah's this weekend to some mixed reviews from enthusiasts, but from very negative reviews from the owners of that house in the above photo.

Apparently, the owners would not sell to Kemah's and the city has no zoning restrictions, so there was no problem in building right by the house like that. The Houston Chronicle has a story about this and a hilarious video about the matter. You can see it here.

The owners were probably offered a ton of cash for that property and knew what was coming so I'm not sure I feel bad for them at all.

For reference the Bullet is a Gravity Group ride that's 92' tall and stretches over 3,200' of very twisted track.
