Scott also talked a little about the theme park that inspired his Astroworld album in the first place. “In ‘05 when they took it away, it kind of like took a big piece of my heart away,” he explained. “I just wanted to kind of bring back that feeling and give this city something [so] they can always have something fun to do.”
