The Sad Ghost of an Abandoned New Orleans Amusement Park

This is the Fourth of July Weekend, and while many people might be taking advantage of the long weekend to visit amusement parks all across our great nation, Six Flags New Orleans is still a wasteland of rubble. Six Flags New Orleans, formerly known as Jazzland when it first opened in 2000, is located in Eastern New Orleans, and the park was completely flooded and closed when Hurricane Katrina struck in 2005. Six years later, it remains closed, a desolate victim of both political fighting and the elements.
