MODERN DAY SUPERCARS AS ASTROWORLD ROLLERCOASTERS: PURE NOSTALGIA


Let’s take a trip down memory lane, and get ready for some serious nostalgia!

When I was younger I have such fond memories of trying to do well in school. Every time I brought home a report card I was sure to have straight A’s because if I did, that meant a Season Pass to AstroWorld where I could ride rollercoasters to my heart’s content all summer long!

So here are todays supercars compared to Astroworld’s long but not forgotten rollercoasters!

The Viper: Dodge Viper

Climbing to the top and passing through the dark tunnel then hitting the big loop was a-maz-ing!

Looping Starship: Aston Martin DB11

Always had an irrational fear about this one getting stuck upside down, but being that high was a blast!

Greezed Lightnin': Nissan GTR

The best throw you back in your seat rollercoaster of all time, then flip it into reverse for a huge scream!

XLR-8: Lamborghini Huracan

Swinging stories above water and warping around turns has never been so exhilarating!

SWAT: Mercedes AMG GT

Flipping around on this one was crazy. Going up was scary but coming down towards the ground was insane.

Excalibur: Porsche 911 GT3 RS

The best small rollercoaster of the park, and taking this low angled turn made me think of a race track!

Dungeon Drop: Ferrari F12

Dungeon Drop scared the ever living piss out of me, sort of like a V12 Ferrari would... Untamable

Mayan Mindbender: Maserati GranTurismo

A silent sleeper, like the Mindbender in the dark you wouldn't see it coming.

Batman: The Escape / Lamborghini Aventador

It's only fitting the Batman ride would get paired with Bruce Waynes car from The Dark Knight Rises

Texas Cyclone: Acura NSX

The Texas Cyclone reminded me of the NSX because of how effortlessly it takes sharp turns at speed!

Texas Tornado: Audi R8 V10

This crosses all the boxes. The longest, fastest, tallest, coolest of them all - like the R8 it does it all!

Ultra Twister: Ferrari 458 Speciale

Take a huge drop, then spin 360 degrees just to fall and do it backwards. The speciale alike is one of a kind!

Serial Thriller / McLaren 720S

The newest to Astroworld alike the 720S to the world, and thus the most technologically advanced!

Astroway: Bentley Continental GTC

Endless comfort and a smooth ride to the other side of the park or the other side of the city!

Astroneedle: Rolls Royce Wraith

Sit back and enjoy the ride, the Astroneedle like the Rolls Royce is built for comfort and ultimate enjoyment!

I can still remember thinking all day of where I would start, which one to ride first, and which one I would spend the most time on. While curating the perfect plan for the day of adventure I came to quite the abrupt dilemma… I couldn’t decide which rollercoaster was my favorite.How could I ever choose just one to be the best?

Each brought thrills in its own unique way – some would do flips, some would throw you in reverse, some were raw and threw you around the corners like only a wooden rollercoaster could, and then there was Greezed Lightnin’ that launched 0-60mph in under 4 seconds for an upside-down loop!

Forty years later, I found myself in the same situation when I wanted to buy my first supercar. How was I supposed to pick which one, when I wanted to drive them all! I wanted the raw power of the Dodge Viper, I wanted to feel the Ferrari take me quickly through corners, and I wanted to be frightened by the monstrous V12 of the Lamborghini.

That was the moment the Supercar Club came to me and I decided I didn’t want to pick just one – I wanted to drive them all… and now you can too!

écurie25 Supercar Club lets people explore their options and drive cars they never thought possible. There has never been a better time to join, as manufacturers are rolling out more amazing supercars each year - just look at the Geneva and New York auto shows this year alone!

Unleash your curiosity and enjoy each supercar in a carefree way like you never imagined. Drive them through the city, or take them on a driving tour with us to see roads unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. It’s simple: Join the Club, Drive the Cars. Gentleman, start your engines.
