Long Description:
According to Wikipedia, the park is located in Eastern New Orleans, in the Ninth Ward of the city off Interstate 510. The park first opened under the name "Jazzland," opening in 2000 and operated by Alfa Smartparks before Six Flags took over the park lease in 2002.
The land, owned by the city of New Orleans, is currently leased to and operated by Six Flags. After Hurricane Katrina, Six Flags has sought to end its lease on the site. The owners claim the park must remain shut down as long as outstanding claims with insurance companies remain unsettled.

On September 18, 2009, the city of New Orleans fined Six Flags $3 million and ordered the park to vacate its lease.
On August 18, 2009, it was announced that the land would be re-developed into a Nickelodeon-branded water/theme park.

As of Sep 20, 2010, the site is still shut down with no future clear, since New Orleans officially now owns the property and the plans for the Nickelodeon branded theme park fell through three months after bonds failed to come through.
