Abandoned Six Flags New Orleans Perfect for Photographers

A freak show consisting of circus performers, hand balancers, a contortionist and a fire breather wanted to use the abandoned decaying Six Flags New Orleans as a backdrop for a photo shoot, only to be interrupted by the local authorities.  The group was handed a court summons and a citation, which was later waived.

Six Flags New Orleans or possibly better known as the former Jazzland Theme Park has been closed since 2005 after Hurricane Katrina flooded much of the park.  The park has remained closed since.  Retail plans  have been presented for the site of the park, which would be called Jazzland Outlet Mall, but has yet to begin construction.

The group was were arrested and went to carry on their photo shoot and now it has become a part of a documentary titled “Abandoned”.
