This Abandoned Amusement Park Is Super Creepy
Six Flags New Orleans (SFNO) is a 140-acre, abandoned theme park in New Orleans. It first opened in 2000, but has been closed since it was seriously damaged by flooding during Hurricane Katrina on August 29, 2005. It is currently owned by the Industrial Development Board (IDB) of New Orleans.
In July 2019, mayor LaToya Cantrell announced that the New Orleans government would explore the possibility of demolishing the site. This idea stemmed from reports that the park’s wildlife and overall condition had been disturbing local residents. An analysis estimated that it would cost around $1.3 million to demolish the park.
