Six Flags New Orleans opening considered a success

Posted Thursday, April 17, 2003 4:38 AM | Contributed by Jeff

Six Flags New Orleans is calling the theme park’s first weekend of operation a success. The former Jazzland theme park reopened Saturday and Sunday as a Six Flags. Six Flags acquired the park last summer from Jazzland investors and poured more than $20 million into improvements and expansion.

Duh! What else would they be expected to say? What did the guests think about the park? That's what really counts!

I see that they are keeping admission prices down too. $32.99 for standard Adult admission is pretty cheap for a Six Flags park!

SCREAM with me... in 2003!

I was there opening day and I loved the park. Tons of improvements. Plus Bat Man is the fastest of them all!

I love our Batman it is my new favorite Batman. I found the improvements to be wonderful. I am hoping for S: UF in 2004 and S:ROS in 2005

Will the S:ROS be as good as the one @ SFNE? I hope so because the southern parks which have longer seasons than the midwest or other northern states lacks a good airtime hyper.

I don't know if SFNO will have a season much longer than the mid-Atlantic parks. Astroworld has about the same climate, maybe just a little warmer, and opens in early March, but closes after Holloween same as east coast parks. New Orleans doesn't have nearly the year around climate that Orlando or SoCal do. Winters in New Orleans tend to be very damp with highs in the 50s or even upper 40s. (Kind of like here in Maryland today) Not particularly good park weather, especially when you are used to warm weather.

Jazzland's first season ran through the end of December.
