  1. ^ I always enjoy seeing new train models and nanocoasters pop up in the stores - the park has been making some really steady progress with additions to their lineup. If they keep this pace up, it'll only be a matter of time before some poor designer has to figure out a way to model a "train" from the Joker...
  2. I was very disappointed to see that the city did not consider the Paidia Company, Inc. proposal (this group seeks to construct a reimagined Jazzland where SFNO resides). Maybe I'm a tad biased as a theme park enthusiast, but I believe TPC-NOLA has just as good a plan, if not better, than any of the finalists selected. If nothing else, they would certainly be able to utilize much more of the infrastructure that's already in place. The good news is they did submit a protest and have a solid amount of backing from local community members, so there's still a chance (however slim) that another park could occupy the space.
  3. Love the new format for this bittersweet spotlight. I'm looking forward to the many wonderful memories that will come to mind as we proceed through the month and the graveyard becomes ever more comprehensive. Excellent work as always!
  4. ^ They must have some huge construction plans for the upcoming year with season pass prices like these! My goodness!
  5. Love the ending line in that last paragraph Somehow, this tower never seems to show its age at all. Maybe it's just the maintenance of the surrounding scenery and my mind playing tricks, but it looks as bright and colorful as ever each time I visit the park.
  6. I'd be excited to see any or all of these concepts in action. It's amazing how even the smallest tweaks to existing ride infrastructures can make things feel really different and innovative! The stadium style seating on that Giga Splash is a nice touch. I wonder what effect that would have on how wet riders get, particularly with respect to standing water inside the ride vehicle?
  7. This is so cool! Everything about its crafting is so meticulous. As cool as digitized models are, I definitely agree that nothing beats physical ones like these.
  8. Happy birthday scott, hope you had a great one!
  9. You're probably right - and changing the area in question would provide very minimal benefit. They didn't get a whole lot for selling off Bally's either ($25 million), so it's not like they have a ton of spare money to throw around from that.
  10. I've looked up countless videos of the former Six Flags New Orleans over the years - the state of affairs there since Katrina has always been sad yet mystifying. Now, a company called Bright Sun Films is producing a documentary on the topic, with commentary from (among others) area residents, park goers, and former employees. It's due to release in the near future and will shed a lot of light on the full magnitude of the destruction caused by the hurricane (including that done to the insides of the buildings, which to this point hasn't really been captured in great detail), as well as provide a fascinating glimpse at the current condition of the land the park was situated on.
