“A disgrace to our city”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

It is an eyesore at best. It needs to be renovated or torn down. Surely there is something that can be done to better use that space

“Once the 8th wonder of the world”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

The first domed stadium with its own artificial grass, called AstroTurf
The place is big and they used to have the rodeo and oil well conventions in there whith actual drilling rigs and equipment set up in there.
Sadly it's fate will be the save as astroworld, struck down by the wrecking ball.

“"The 8th Wonder of the World"”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

I went repeatedly from the mid-'70s until it was shut down. The future of the Dome is too dependent on greed rather than logic. Reliant Stadium didn't need to be built; the NFL knew the Texas were coming two years before the Oilers left. Houston did not have to build a new stadium to get the team. It would have been much cheaper to keep the Dome operating that build the new stadium and much cheaper than restoring something that has been sitting.
