Six Flags New Orleans to be reborn?
Private group Southern Star Amusement has posted an online proposal outlining their vision for refurbishing and reopening the former Six Flags New Orleans site, which has not reopened since receiving heavy damage during Hurricane Katrina. Southern Star Amusement describes itself as a group, "made up of professionals from all walks of life. This includes amusement, finance, marketing, information technology, food services, security engineering and retail sales with a single goal of saving, rebuilding and operating the former Six Flags: New Orleans park. All other information will be released at a later time." Few details are available on the group's site, beyond the fact that as part of the proposal, a $7 million water park would be built for the 2009 season, and would be a same-ticket attraction for the park.
