This is a video of Mardi Gras Mayhem before the storm.  

This is a video of the abandoned Mardi Gras Madness at Six Flags, New Orleans.  Most of the ride has been gutted, but the front facade remains.  It was a dark ride, similar to “Men in Black” at Universal Studios, Orlando, as the riders aim was to shoot at targets.  

This is a picture of the exit sign at Six Flags, New Orleans.  The water line is still visible even years after the disaster.

Location:  New Orleans, Louisiana.  

Date of Opening: 2002 

Date of Closing:  2005

Six Flags New Orleans was located outside of the main city, hidden away amongst swamps.  It originally opened in 2000 as a different park, known as Jazz World.  That park went into bankruptcy and was bought by Six Flags.

The amusement park was out of the way, and was the lowest profiting off all their parks at the time.  However, the company was signed into a 75 year lease and could not vacate the property.  

In 2005, the park was temporarily closed due to a fast approaching hurricane Katrina, with the full intention of being reopened.  However, that was never to be.  The entire are was flooded, including the park, for days.  All the fixtures, electronics, and buildings were submerged and effectively destroyed.  The park was ruined.  

Because it wasn’t a very profitable park, Six Flags ultimately decided not to salvage the area.  The land now belongs to the city of New Orleans, and the park’s remains still sit on the spot.  There was talk in 2009 of opening up a Nickelodeon park on the premises, but that plan eventually fell through, and the land has been left to nature.

Location:  Taichung, Taiwan.

Date of Opening:  ???

Date of Closing:  September 21st, 1999 


Katolis World (also known as Katoli’s World, and Katori’s World) was an amusement park located in Taiwan.  It was one of the only parks in the country to house two roller coasters, and that make it very popular among locals and tourists alike.  

However, in 1999, a violent earthquake shook the area.  While no one was in the park at the time, many of the rides and equipment were severely damaged.  Because of this, the park never opened again, and was simply left to be reclaimed by the jungle.

The park is almost entirely overgrown, and no plans for the area have been made.
