Travis Scott is to thank for Houston’s new amusement park.
Wednesday, Scott arrived in his birthplace for the second leg of his Astroworld: Wish You Were Here tour. During a brief pause in his set, the “Sicko Mode” rapper was joined on stage by Houston’s Mayor, Sylvester Turner, to share a special announcement with the crowd.
“Because of him, we want to bring another amusement theme park back to the city,” Turner said in fan captured footage as he presented Scott with a key to the city of Houston.

According to the Mayor’s Office, the desire to bring a theme park back to Houston is solely Scott’s brainchild. Scott is in support of the mayor tapping investors to help create and design an amusement park that operates as a private business venture, KHOU 11 News reports.
“This would not be a city project but would encourage the use of private money and developers,” Turner’s spokeswoman explained. “Mayor Turner is definitely in support of that.”
Scott previously received the key to Missouri City, his hometown, last February.
