Six Flags New Orleans, Six Years Later

If you ever get a chance to go to NOLA, this would be a pretty cool place to venture too, though illegal. I know i'd want to stop by and take some photos.

The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is not so much an SUV as it is an experience. It's slow and loud, handles poorly, has crummy interior materials and features doors that provide virtually no crash protection. But when it comes to off-road performance, the Wrangler is simply the best choice available.

As mentioned, that place was a swamp before Jazzland opened and it will be a swamp again. Some of the items looked like they were moved directly from the Pontchatrain Beach amusement park (where UNO is now located).

Before spending any money on demolishing this place, it would be nice if the MSY airport, that has been under construction for many years, could be finished up. Of course, the right folks need to be paid off before that happens. This is Louisiana after all......

Is Edwin Edwards getting out of the "big house" anytime soon????

I would have preferred to have seen the original unmodified photos. These are very fascinating anyway. They remind me of other urban decay photos though they are not as extreme. I have not seen such a good collection of odd amusement park photos since I looked at the old Riverview Park photos -- for those of you who remember that old amusement park in the Chicago area.

There's another place with a similar story (minus a hurricane, it just closed on its own) in Ohio. Chippewa Lake Amusement park. A couple of videos up on youtube about it. It closed in the 70s, but wasn't torn down until last year, so it was just like the stuff they show on that 'life after people' show on the History Channel.

Very cool pictures, though. I guess that's what you get for building a city 10 FEET BELOW SEA LEVEL and trying to keep it from drowning.

Hmmmm, How hard would it be to mod a Jeep to wheel roller coasters!!!

Great pics sure is a sad thing to see though.

I've heard that place is pretty cool to visit as well in OH. My buddy went once.
