In a surprise move which no one expected, a group called TPC-NOLA has filed proposed plans to both fix and reopen the devastated amusement park, Six Flags New Orleans under the the parks previous name of "Jazzland".
Within the proposal they focus on the unique culture and art of New Orleans as well as the fact the defunct park has been used as a movie/TV setting and the idea of an additional waterpark called "Baritone Beach". They point out the amusement park attendance has been highly on the rise as well as the growing interest in waterparks among traveling guests.
Their plan includes a "themed land" model, with five unique areas in the new park.
- Outdoor Concert Venue
- The Quarter
- The Beach
- The Bayou
- Sportsman's Paradise
The bad news is that nearly everything currently standing at the Six Flags New Orleans site would be removed, the remaining items are simply too damaged to be fixed and reused. However, this proposed new park is willing to bring in new rides and attractions.
Honestly, it's a LOT to take in in a short blog article. I'd suggest anyone interested check out the proposal for themselves, it's easy to read but long!
