Worlds of Wonder’s theme parks, attractions, and resort facilities will provide guests with an immersive experience, offering “More WONDER than ever before.”

Jazzland New Orleans consists of a theme park called Jazzland, a water park, movie studios with backlot, a grand hotel and a boulevard with shipping, dining and great nightlife. Jazzland can house large events and is a great destination during Mardi Gras.

The Paidia Proposal

Six Flags New Orleans was abandoned after Hurricane gallery_1_bgKatrina more than 10 years ago. The Paidia Company submitted a proposal to re-open the park as a true celebration of Louisiana by connecting the dots of community, history, identity, and artistry in a living testimonial to our spirit and pride. Additionally, we propose to add a water park and movie back lot to the site.This proposal for Jazzland includes locally owned businesses and is working with area youth organizations to offer internship programs and art & music education programs at the park. The Jazzland project is fully designed, property is the existing land of former Six Flags New Orleans. We are ready when you are.

Why Save Jazzland?

Families of New Orleans would like to be able to bring their children to the park gallery_5_bgagain. The City is trying to attract more tourist by showing them that there is more to the City than Bourbon Street. Jazzland is a perfect fit to add to that campaign and to attract more families to visit.The infrastructure is already there for it to be a THEME PARK. Historically, the park attracted over 800,000 guests annually while operating seasonally and competing with Astroworld. Today, the closest regional park is over 450 miles away and we plan to operate year-round.

Backlot Studios

Jurassic_de92d3_5609561In addition to filming opportunities within the park, a new film back lot will be added.  This will allow us to create locations that are not available elsewhere in the city, and also allow for car chase scenes, pyrotechnics and other stunt work that needs a controlled environment for safety. This concept is born because of the many movies shot on location in the past few years, such as ‘Killer Joe’, ‘Stolen’, ‘Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters’, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ and ‘Jurassic World’.

Community

2016-02-13-13.29.59-1024x768When we first began to look at this RFP, we were driven by the notion that since this park was owned by the City, it should be restored in a way that benefits that community. We took this idea and turned it into our overall mission. While most theme parks have charitable activities, we wanted to go further. Every decision we have made has been guided by the question, “How can we do this so that it benefits the people?”

We started with the basics and have sought out area youth organizations and foundations that are already actively working to make lives better. We have found ways to partner with them, either directly, by including them actively in the redevelopment, or indirectly, by planning fundraiser activities for when the park opens. We have several initiatives that are incorporated into the business model that will aid in having the park be a true asset to the community.
