Since 2005 of the shut down due to Hurricane Katrina nothing has been done to whether open up Six Flags New Orleans or make a new park

The answer is that nothing is being done or will be done in the foreseeable future.
Makes a great post-apocalyptic movie set though.

Hopefully the new administration will get the ball rolling with this. It's like we're not trying to be a competitive southern city...our city needs jobs and other things to do besides the french quarter. ...

The truth of the matter is that even if the park had survived Katrina unscathed it would have been on life support anyway. In the years following Katrina Six Flags massively scaled back their amusement park empire and closed the majority of their parks, including Astroworld. The only difference Katrina made was that it left the park damaged and made a simple rebranding and reopening the park as something different much more involved than changing out a few signs, rides, and shows. Really I think that the future of the property as an amusement park is less than viable, especially given the location (far from the FQ which is our prime attraction) and the lack of a good, clean, SAFE mass transit option to get attendees out there. I think that if we would have been forward thinking several years back it would have made a great facility for the film industry, but it seems that Atlanta beat us to that with the Pinewood Studios Atlanta facility. The reality is that due to numerous political, socioeconomic, and logistical factors NO East has become home to the greatest concentration of crime and poverty in the metro area. It sucks because there are still a good number of nice middle and upper class neighborhoods in the area, but due to the other factors large national chains (aside from a select few) are reluctant to invest in the area.


Perhaps the bigger issue is that many local investors are even more reluctant to invest in the East, which is a sure indicator that they do not see a good return on their investment. If I recall the abandoned, dilapidated, Grand Theatre was/is owned by local investors. What have they done? NOTHING, but let it sit and be a eyesore to the community. The same holds true for a good number of other businesses that have not returned to the East. Many of those are franchises that are/were owned by local persons or partnerships. It's really hard to make a case for large national and international chains to invest in our community when our own local business people are not willing to do the same.

Since this was written, the TV show NCIS New Orleans has used it for about 10 minutes at the end of an episode and I think b-grade zombie movie was filmed there.
