With Labor Day comes the unofficial end of summer, and the end of a little piece of history in Texas.

FOX News Radio's Chris Hoenig reports:

(Ride Attendant) "You guys wanna ride one more time?"

One last ride on the Texas Chute Out at Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington.  It was the first modern parachute-drop ride in the country, opening in 1976 and creating lasting memories over the weekend.

(Park Goer) "I just never thought that, you know, we would not always have this ride to ride together, but it was a fun time and I'm glad I got to share it with my daughter."

The Texas Chute Out and a neighboring roller coaster are being taken down to clear space for the Texas SkyScreamer, a new super-tall swing ride that's set to rise about 400 feet off the ground.  The roller coaster will be reassembled at the Six Flags in St. Louis.
