“It's time to come down!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

The Astrodome was the 8th wonder of the world but now it's inhabitable due to condition. The City of Houston won't even give an occupancy permit due to it's deplorable condition. I once worked at the Dome for several years remembering seeing ELVIS and SO many other stars at the Rodeo! Astros games, concerts and of course Love ya Blue "OILERS". Unfortunately it's time for the old girl to be taken down. New memories will be rebuilt for many generations to come. Rest in peace old girl so many wonderful memories in that great Dome Stadium!!!

“Old memories”
Reviewed 5 September 2013

Been here many times it was large and it served a purpose it housed all the evacuees from Louisiana from the hurricane. It holds a lot of people. I'm not sure what the plans are for it. If its just sitting there then it should be used and since its not being used then it should be taken down. My kids will never experience it just like Astroworld. History only in our memories.

“A disgrace to our city”
Reviewed 2 June 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
