17 of the Planet's Most Incredible Abandoned Sites

Fodor's Logo By Carl Pettit of Fodor's | Slide 1 of 18: <p><strong>Where</strong>: New Orleans, Louisiana</p><p>Hurricane Katrina left widespread devastation in her wake in 2005, including the wrecked Six Flags Jazzland Park. Once the storm passed, the rollercoaster and other attractions were never to reopen again. What remains is water, a few alligators, and a massive monument to the destruction Mother Nature can inflict on the gigantic toys we build for our amusement.</p><p><strong>Insider Tip: </strong>While views of the park can be had from behind the chain link fence, entrance to the abandoned park is strictly prohibited—although some intrepid urban explorers do break the rules, risk arrest, and climb the fence for a closer look.</p><p><strong>Plan Your Trip:</strong> Visit <a href="http://www.fodors.com/world/north-america/usa/louisiana/new-orleans">Fodor’s New Orleans Travel Guide</a></p>
