MODERN DAY SUPERCARS AS ASTROWORLD ROLLERCOASTERS: PURE NOSTALGIA


Astroworld Houston Texas

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!

Astroworld Viper

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!

Astroworld Greezed Lightnin

XLR-8: Lamborghini Huracan

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

Astroworld XLR8

SWAT: Mercedes AMG GT

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

Astroworld Swat

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!

Astroworld Texas Cyclone

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!

Astroworld Texas Tornado

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!

Astroworld Ultra Twister

Serial Thriller / McLaren 720S

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