Take an Illegal Tour of Six Flags in New Orleans


Hurricane Katrina did so much permanent damage in New Orleans that, some of it may never be repaired. This photo essay of the remains of the New Orleans Six Flags is so haunting, that it feels like the set of a horror movie waiting to be filmed. Some of the photos are almost surreal.

We’ve posted a few pics here, but you can see all of them with photo credits at lovethesepics.com and in the video below.

did anyone here ever  see the article in Weird NJ about the long gong Jungle Habitat amusement park?     They shut down one day and just never re-opened.  Nature took it back  Im sure all the pics are still online.  Does Weird NJ still exist?

Went on a road trip about 4 years ago, stopped in New Orleans for the night, went to some strip clubs, saw an older woman shitting on the side of Bourbon Street, talked to her while shitting, but the point of the story is. The hotel we stayed at had a shit ton of water damage on the first floor walls about 5 feet up.

This crappy park was a bust before Katrina. Bankrupt. Bet they took the insurance money and ran.

Am I supposed to feel bad about this?  Anyone going to New Orleans for the Six Flags may as well stay at home.

Looks just like I remember it. Except there arent as many black folks lurking and waiting to steal your wallet.

If we slowly move the camera and hope for wind, it'll be more dramatic.  It looks like Coney Island on a good day.
