You have heard the news that Peppa Pig is coming across the pond to Texas and soon Universal Parks will have a home in Frisco, plus the rumors that Disney may find a way into the Lone Star State. Now, there is a woman in Houston that wants them all to take notice that Texas does not need new ideas by opening a Texas themed park called TexasLand USA.

It is definitely time for a new amusement park to make its way back to H-Town since Astroworld closed just before Halloween in 2005. The design for TexasLand would incorporate many of the legendary landmarks and historical events that all originated in Texas.

How did the idea for TexasLand originate?

A young adult and sixth generation Texan named Lizzy McGee with experience working with Disney and Parques Reunidos was forced home during Covid, and began to expand on the idea of a Texas themed amusement park. Funding began as a Kickstarter, and once over $80K was secured by the end of April, the team began moving forward with a study to assist in site location and making a young dream into a reality.

Obviously the site of Astroworld has since been completely demolished and redeveloped, so that location is off the table. If you were to recommend the perfect place in the Houston metro to open a brand new theme park, where do you think the perfect place would be?

More than having a great location, my prayer is they have amazing food! Read more at this KCEN article.
