Being a native Houstonian, it was a sad, sad, day when Astroworld/Waterworld were closed and demolished. There were many summer days I walked miles in circles around Astroworld, sweating in Houston’s brutal summer heat, to ride the many coasters and rides. For energy I often stopped in the bakery to buy the mini loafs of bread, and then the candy store for some cherry sours. To quench my thirst a tall glass of lemonade was in order. Healthy eating, yes? Bread, cherry sours, and lemonade.

For years I have wondered if the 4th largest city in American would get another theme park. The answer is,”No.” However, just to the north of Houston in New Caney, Grand Texas will be opening on March 11th, 2014. This date is tentative.

Grand Texas will be more than an amusement park with activities for all ages and skill levels along with amusement rides. For more information check out their website at:
