The Remnants Of This Abandoned Louisiana Amusement Park Are Both Devastating And Beautiful
Originally called Jazzland, New Orleanians rejoiced when this exciting amusement park was constructed in the New Orleans East neighborhood. Eventually, Jazzland wasn’t able to maintain itself and was bought out by Six Flags, which was seen as a big improvement and a hopeful sign for the park. But just three years later, Hurricane Katrina struck the site, and the park has been abandoned ever since. There have been a few developers interested in taking over the site, but as of today it still remains abandoned.
