What’s Up With This Abandoned Texas Amusement Park?
This amusement has never opened. So has it technically been abandoned or just never completed? Anytime you hear of an abandoned amusement park, it usually means an amusement park that was once open and then closed for good. That isn't necessarily the case with this one. This TEXAS amusement park was started and then abandoned. They never finished it!
• ADVENTURE POINTE IN TEXAS CITY, JUST SOUTH OF HOUSTON
On Highway 45 and Fashion Wy in Texas City, Adventure Point Theme Park was slated to open in 2015. It never did. It was going to be a 24-acre theme park, and while they started on the project, it was never finished.
• LAWSUITS AND PERMITS ISSUES STOPPED THE PROGRESS
Apparently, in 2019, lawsuits from the developers with consultants stopped any forward progress of this theme park. Rollercoasters, hotels, an amphitheater, and a train were all part of the big plan.
• THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE PARK AND OTHER RIDES WERE COMPLETED
The main entrance to the park and some other small rides were completed before the progress was stalled.
• THE TRAIN TRACK WAS PUT IN PLACE
You can see that the train track around the park was put in place years ago.
• IS THERE HOPE FOR THE AMUSEMENT PARK TO EVER OPEN?
There is no official word on this whole project, and if you have an update, please comment below. They have a Facebook page, and it hasn't been updated since 2019.
• PARKING LOT HAS NEVER BEEN USED!
Not sure what's happening with this abandoned Amusement park in the making...but I sure hope it does have an opening day .....one day!
