The Mardi Gras Menagerie was the name of this carousel. It was located in the Mardi Gras themed section of the park. Other rides in this section include The Jester, Mega Zeph, Dizzy Lizzy, Krazy Krewe , Mad Rex, Jocco's Mardi Gras Madness, Spillway Splashout and Skycoaster.
Originally called Jazzland until Six Flags took over in 2002. In 2005 hurricane Katrina unleashed all her destructive fury on the Gulf coast. Following the collapse of the levee’s in the 9th ward and the over flow from lake Pontchartrain the park sat submerged in 4-7 ft of brackish, corrosive water for over a month. 80% of all building were considered destroyed and what was left was unsafe and unrecoverable. What’s left of the abandoned park provides us with a surreal and haunting image.
Six Flags New Orleans may not be haunted, but it certainly is haunting. After Katrina hit the park was destroyed and forgotten to all but urban explorers. There are many pictures, but this one in particular I found inspiring for a ghost story!
