The roller coaster first opened in 1978. It operated until the closure of Six Flags AstroWorld on October 30, 2005, after which it was dismantled and placed in storage about a mile north of Joyland Amusement Park. In 2012, it was announced that Cliff's Amusement Park would be receiving the roller coaster, however, the sale never took place. As part of the proposed Grand Texas theme park Greezed Lightnin' was to be refurbished and reopened, this also fell through.
