Soon you'll be able to relive the thrill of riding Texas Cyclone at Astroworld

PLAINVIEW, Texas (KTRK) -- Houstonians were crushed when Astroworld closed down 15 years ago.

But soon, fans of the Six Flags amusement park will be able to take a walk down memory lane when one of the park's famous rides will be put up for display at a roller coaster museum.

The famed wooden Texas Cyclone was left in a temporary storage facility in the city of Plainview, near Amarillo in the Texas panhandle, shortly after the park closed in 2005. Now what's left of the thrilling ride has been moved to the National Roller Coaster Museum and Archives.
