This home movie captures the Basketts spending time at the AstroWorld amusement park in Houston in July 1968. The family enjoys various rides and attractions, including the Wagon Wheel, the AstroWorld Band, and a puppet show. The highlight of the film is the aerial footage seen from the top of the Astro Lift. The view reveals the entire park, as well as the nearby Astrodome stadium. AstroWorld opened on June 1, 1968, as part of the Astrodomain, a development complex owned by former Houston Mayor Roy Hofheinz. Six Flags bought the park in 1975, operating it until its closure in 2005.
