Six Flags New Orleans Update

Southern Star Amusements is now saying that they might try to build an individual floodwall to protect the new amusement park they want to build using Six Flags New Orleans' remains. As announced earlier, the plan is to have a water park open first, as early as next year.

These guys have really big dreams! I know nothing about floodwalls, but the article says that private ones are hard to come by because of their immense cost.

I still hope things work out for Southern Star, but they're not quite there yet - another proposal for the park to be razed and turned into a sports field complex is still moving forward.
