In Louisiana, we don't have teenyboppers. We have gangs and thugs and homies who hang out in places like this.

Any pictures of it submerged? It was really strange to see when it was.

How sad

They have some great rides there too, by the looks...what a waste.

Beautiful footage, thanks for posting this!

Re: Six Flags New Orleans

Having lived in New Orleans for a bit it just confirms my impression of the area, the people and the decisions they seem to make more often than not.

Housing complexes built with untreated pine wood that rotted after two years.
A downtown area that is below sea level and must be constantly pumped to stay above water.
Dikes and pumps keep the area alive.
Homeowners pay to have sand pumped under sinking houses.
Standing next to Mississippi river and watching ships go by ABOVE me.
Bars and liquor stores doing business 24/7.
The whole fiasco surrounding Katrina with buses that no one knew how to drive. People crowding into a stadium and complaining that no one came to help them.
Homeowners being beat down to confiscate legally owned firearms.
Cops being arrested for shooting people who only wanted to leave the area.
And now we see the remains of a waterlogged amusement park built on a swamp. I wouldn't be surprised if people sued the park for not being open.
One day a ship malfunctioned and the engine room went dead. The captain lost control and though he tried valiently to restart the engine and regain control he was unable. He sounded his horns until the ship actually crunched into the riverwalk. People came running from blocks away and threw themselves on the debri. The lawsuits enriched the local population for awhile.
If not for the oil industry all there would be left in that area is tourism, prostitution, alcohol sales, gambling and swamp tours.
The swamp tour was the most fun I had there. They should promote the swamp tours, airboat rides, aligator hunting, fishing and food industries. I don't like crabs, catfish, mudbugs and other strange food they eat there but I have heard it is good. It is fresh and cheap. A plate of a dozen oysters was about $3.00 A whole gunnysack was about $10.00. I'm guessing cheap prices for crabs, crawdaddies and other things like that. The prawns were huge.

Re: Six Flags New Orleans

I remember the crash into the Riverwalk, my boyfriend at the time was working in the WB store they had there.

And don't get me started on what happened after the Deepwater Horizon explosion.....the Times-Picayune, one of the most liberal papers in the US, called Obama out on his drilling moratorium. You want to protect the environment and the wildlife, but you also want to protect the livelihood of the people and the state itself. To see signs in restaurants around the country saying "We are currently not serving any seafood from the Gulf of Mexico"....that's heartbreaking for the generations of families who've made their living on the rigs. There were actually a few suicides in other states that were affected by it.

Re: Six Flags New Orleans

Everytime I see photos and videos of any abandoned amusement park i get kind of sad. I think about the laughter and screams that people and kids once had. The last time I went to the six flags out by me i had pictured what it would be like to have almost the whole entire place underwater. I got real sad instantly. I hope they are able to at least fix all the rides.
