Six Flags, New Orleans

Ruined by Hurricane Katrina, this once-popular amusement park remains in a state of disrepair today. There have been several proposals for reusing or renovating the facility, but as of this writing, the park sits vacant and Six Flags is still in court trying to get compensation for repairs from its insurers. Despite the chance of being cited for trespassing, so-called urban explorers wander through the disused rides, vacant food counters, and people-free pedestrian areas.
