This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at the former Six Flags New Orleans and potentially Jazzland, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.
Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!
Hey everyone...It took too much time but I found a video online of the damage and took some video grabs to get some photos. Pretty interesting. Everything appears to still be standing...standing in anywhere from 5 - 10 feet of water!
If you thought that Megazeph was built over a swamp before wait till you see it now. Again, not too many close up shots since this was from a news chopper, but it will definitely give you an idea of the damage!
Sept 16th Update - Added a few new photos below showing massive destruction. Photos from: http://interthemepark.shutterfly.com/ac ... 0d366c05da Please see that link for about 40 additional photos.
Lots of buildings underwater...you can also see the pirate ship and another ride.
Here's a closeup of what I believe is the entrance and the tip of a log flume (I haven't been to the park since it was Jazzland in 2001, so I apologize if I'm wrong)
In this photo you can see the boomerang, aviator, and a piece of Batman.
From a bit farther out we can see more of Batman...good thing they built it so high off the ground!
Even farther out now and we can see the S&S Towers and Megazeph on the right side of the park. Again, for the most part everything still seems 'there' but I wonder what kind of inspections they'll need to get the rides back open once the water is removed
Final close up of the parking lot and some of the buildings underwater. Poor Sally Dark Ride must have Major Damage.
Yeah, I was trying to find pictures too, then when I decided that they didn't exist I started watching way too many videos and ads before and after videos till I finally found a video that had 10 seconds of footage!
Thanks for the pics Elissa! At least the coasters and some rides still appear to be standing, so they aren't total losses. One less thing for the park to have to replace later. I'm sure this has got to be one of the worst disasters to ever hit a park (or the entire US for that matter!)
Current coaster count : 223 waterviper [1:08am]: jahan i know you 17 and all but I think your one great piece of ass
arrowfanman [1:36am]: Good...now we have the trifecta of ass-wanting!
