The New Orleans amusement park Jazzland opened in 2000, and the lease was purchased by Six Flags in 2002. The park was upgraded a year later and renamed Six Flags New Orleans, with a Mardi Gras-themed area and a respectable collection of rides and coasters. The park quickly became one of the top attractions in the area
In 2005, Katrina came to town..
The wreck of this once merry place has sat deserted for many, many years since Katrina struck and is now classed as a Ghost Theme Park. It is now owned by the city with tentative plans to put a mall in its place.
