Former Six Flags New Orleans Plans for Redevelopment

Former Six Flags New Orleans Plans for Redevelopment

  The music could be playing again at the former Jazzland site in New Orleans, La., near Lake Pontchartrain. Currently the 162-sacre theme park sits abandoned, after its second iteration as Six Flags New Orleans ended with severe flood damage during Hurricane Katrina in 2005.  The site is located in New Orleans East at the intersection of Interstate-10 and Interstate-510. The park is currently owned by the Industrial Development Board of New Orleans and has been sitting dormant.  IDB was created by the New Orleans City Council to promote the retention, expansion, and attraction of business and commercial enterprises and expand employment opportunities.The hope for a promising rebirth comes after a troubled past.

Food Festivals Scheduled for US Theme Parks

Food Festivals Scheduled for US Theme Parks

  Food festivals have been one way some amusement parks have been able to open their gates to customers during the pandemic.  In California, dates for Knott’s Boysenberry Festival 2021 are also still to be decided; in 2020 more limited food sampling events took its place. Regardless of scale and date, when the Buena Park, Calif. park reopens, the celebration of the theme park’s berry-growing heritage will take place with tastes of everything from Boysenberry Gumbo to tamales and tarts. Scheduled to take place this spring is Dollywood’s Flower & Food Festival 2021 in Pigeon Forge, Tenn.

  In an announcement to come next week, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine will allow fairs and festivals to operate in the state with restrictions this Spring.  The move will allow events up to 30% of capacity for outdoor venues. "There are so many people who were waiting for this day, I know you've received the calls and the texts, and I have too from people who were looking to plan for the future, and now, I think, it's reassuring to everybody that the planning can begin, that we can begin down that road back to normal,” Lt. Gov. Jane Husted said.The announcement, made early, will allow events and carnivals to plan ahead for opening, something that has been missing in other state orders.  With events and routing taking time to plan, the "go ahead" must be given well in advance in order to plan and hold an event.  The early announcement will give Ohio amusement business participants ample time to do so.The announcement next week will clarify provisions ...   [read more]
