New Orleans Six Flags was once vibrant and full of life; look at it now and it's almost like the apocalypse happened. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina's horrific onslaught took nearly 2,000 lives across the south coast of the US, making its devastating mark on the world as the costliest hurricane - and one of the three most terrible - in US history. It caused so much destruction that even 9 years later  people and businesses across the coast still haven't picked up all of the pieces torn apart in its wake. One such pertinent example of this happens to be a New Orleans-based Six Flags theme park which had its last day in operation on August 21, 2005. It's no longer under Six Flags ownership and many companies have tried to redevelop it since then, but to no avail. It has, however, offered a prolific setting to multiple movies since its abandonment, including Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and the upcoming Jurassic World. There's no wondering about this, either -- the place is incredibly eerie, and thanks to urban explorer Chris Luckhardt, you can see for yourself just what we mean via the creepy slideshow below.
