Jazzland could make a comeback
NEW ORLEANS - A Baton Rouge based company has submitted a plan to redevelop the shuttered Six Flags New Orleans theme park just outside the Crescent City.
The group wants to re-brand it "Jazzland", as the park was called when it first opened from 2000-2002 before the theme park franchise took over the following year. Their plan includes attractions representing all parts of Louisiana.
The park has been closed since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005. Some of the rides still stand at the location, while others have been dissembled and moved to other parks around the country.
The plan was submitted to the City of New Orleans.
