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.

When the sun goes down on July 4th, people all around the world will marvel at the latest celestial dazzling burst of fireworks pageantry. And what better way to celebrate our nation’s independence could there possibly be than with some high-definition footage of fireworks going off at a glorious 2,000 frames per second?

It’s not so much the heavenly sparkling burst kind of fireworks, but rather a magnificent display of what exactly happens when you stick firecrackers in, for instance, a jar of mayonnaise and other really weird stuff. And it was all captured by the good people at PopSci in scintillating, elegant slow motion. So let’s kick things off right now on your Fourth of July Weekend by exploding some Jell-O! Happy Fourth of July!
