Halloween Fright Fest 2002[edit] For AstroWorld's Fright Fest 2002 event, the last four cars were reversed, which had never been done before on any other suspended roller coaster. The change was successful and the trains remained like that until the park's closure in 2005.[citation needed] Closure[edit] On September 12, 2005, it was announced that AstroWorld would close permanently at the end of the 2005 season and would be demolished shortly afterwards

Roller Coaster Inversion
A roller coaster inversion is a roller coaster element in which the track turns riders upside-down and then returns them to an upright position. Early forms of inversions, dating as far back as 1848 on the Centrifugal Railway
Centrifugal Railway
in Paris, were vertical loops that were circular in nature. They produced massive g-force that was often dangerous to riders, and as a result, the element eventually became non-existent with the last rides to feature the looping inversions being dismantled during the Great Depression. In 1975, designers from Arrow Development created the corkscrew, reviving interest in the inversion during the modern age of steel roller coasters. Since then, the element have evolved from simple corkscrews and vertical loops to more complex inversions such Immelmann loops and cobra rolls
