I don't get it. What is it that you're seeing?

I've updated the first page with a few other new photos I found.

Thank you for the photo's, the park looks like it has suffered quite badly but atleast all the rides are still standing.

I hope they can get the park back into shape and rides working soon.

This is not as important as the people who have lost their homes and are without food, water etc. :(

Very sad time for all who live in the area.

in comparison, a few coaster credits seem pointless.

I live in Metairie, LA, which is a suburb of New Orleans. I haven't seen my house since Sunday, but it looks like I'll be able to on Monday. I'm at my parents house now which is about 25 miles west of the city. It looks like this will be the central hub of rescue operations for the time being. It's just crazy around here. I'm not sure if I still have a job, but luckily I've got enough saved to last me a while. Thanks for all your prayers, hopefully we can get this turned around and headed in the right direction, but it will take time.

SFNO is in the area which was hit the hardest by floods. It will be weeks before the water is removed. Not that this is the most important thing to worry about, but it helps to keep my mind off the tragedy.

Do you know where your wife is?

Wow. That is so sad but again, in perspective to the lives lost, it seems really insignificant.

Can I park my donkey here?

It will take a long, long time to get this park back up and running. I wouldn't be surprised to see this place not open at all next season.

There will be many issues with Structual integrity not to mention all of the environmental issues.

Very, Very Sad Indeed.

with new ownership this park will not run again, I would imagine that some of the costs to fix things will be too high for a park that last time I checked did not do so well.


Matt - This whole New Orleans thing is turning me EMO. Makes me sad all the time.
