Abandoned Six Flags (New Orleans, Louisiana) 

ADDRESS: Village De L'Est Area, New Orleans, LA 70129

COORDINATES: 30.051111, -89.934417

Six Flags New Orleans (SFNO) is an abandoned amusement park in New Orleans. It sits on a 140-acre property, and was once home to twenty-one theme park rides, with six still standing. The park closed in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina struck the South. 

**Beware: This theme park is both surrounded by water and has many ponds that are home to alligators. While they are not known to attack, it’s better to be cautious.

Just out of curiosity because I know you love this animatronic in particular, but do you know if Jocco is still there? I know most of the animatronics on that ride got stolen and Jocco was left there to rot a bit, but I'm genuinely curious if Jocco somehow got taken too.

Hiya. Yes I do love Jocco <3 So because I love him and I was curious too, I looked into this and the Jocco animatronic on top of the ride has been stolen too. 

There were two Jocco animatronics that survived after Hurricane Katrina. The big Jocco on top of the ride and one of the Jocco animatronics inside the ride. 

The inside of the ride has basically been gutted so the smaller animatronic probably disappeared when that happened. 

As for the bigger Jocco on top of the ride looks like he disappeared sometime in 2011 because if you look at pics from that time on flickr then you can see he’s no longer there. I wonder what happened to him? 

Here he is in Feb 2011 almost falling off the ride :///

and then in Aug 2011 he has gone

Another shot from March 2012 (hes still gone) 

Poor Jocco. There’s a great video on youtube of the ride when it was operating and you can see how cool the Jocco animatronics were:

Six Flags Jazzland - New Orleans, Louisiana 

 Severely damaged by Hurricane Katrina, Six Flags Jazzland has been abandoned since. Several of the rides still stand, a testimony to the resilience of New Orleans. Several companies have plans to develop the park, but until then it will remain as the perfect setting for a horror movie.

Outer buildings of Exhibit Be, New Orleans, LA. “ I found myself painting in forgotten places often, that lead me to Degaulle Manor a 360 unit apartment complex, abandoned since Katrina. This time my paint sessions was met with a unique opportunity. One day while painting, the owner of the property stumbled upon me, in that exchange I talked my way into permission to temporarily transform the property and invite the public, Exhibit BE was born. I called on 35 street artist to help me turn the abandoned walls to one of the largest street art exhibits in the south. Over the course of 3 months, over 30,000 people came and experienced the space.” -BMike, predominant artist and producer of the exhibit.

It’s really sad how none of the Mikaelson can just give Marcel a proper apology. Instead they insist on saying killing Davina was simply necessary. They could at least own up and feel guilty or responsible. There total villains if you look at it from Marcel’s point of view. He was born a slave to a father who hated him because of what he was. The Mikaelsons are the closest thing he’s ever known to a real family regardless if he has thier last name or not. They raised him then pretty much abandoned him. Left New Orleans without even looking back. Treat him like shit and only consider him “family” when he’s useful to them. They don’t even have the curtesy to tell this man their sorry and admit they were wrong. It’s really sad and borderline racist honestly. How can you take in a child, raise them into a man then not accept them as if they were your blood. Shit like this makes the Mikaelson’s unforgivable. There the real antagonist. Freya ain’t shit talking bout some just snap Josh’s neck. Elijah been a bitch, Kol cool but clearly the most sociopathic and Rebekah & Klaus will do anything to anyone to protect their always and forever. Everything Marcel says about them is true, the writing is on point. It may be the Mikaelson’s story but always and forever can not justify their actions. 1000 years and they still haven’t learn this. There’s a reason they still have enemies even after Mikael, Esther and Dahlia died. Same way their parents fucked them up they damn near ruined everyone else’s lives. This show should end with them all dying, forever.
