Astroworld in Miniature!

Photo and story from KTRK-TV Houston

Of course, the amusement industry is still saddened by the demise of Houston's landmark attraction, Six Flags AstroWorld. However, the original model of the park, built in 1968 by Ed Henderson, will be resurrected and put on display at one of Houston Public Library's branches. Apparently, the engineering firm that played a key role in AstroWorld's development purchased the model off Craigslist with the intent of donating it to the Library. Check out this great video of the model.
