Depending on who you ask, 2005 could seem like it was just yesterday or a lifetime ago. And while that year was less than two decades ago, how this country and the world have changed in that timespan is quite shocking when you take a closer look.
One of the defining moments of the fifth year of the 21st century was the destruction caused by Hurricane Katrina, which barreled down on the southeast United States, particularly Louisiana, in August 2005. In the end, the hurricane claimed the lives of 1,392 people and caused hundreds of billions of dollars in damage. One of the constant reminders of this tragedy has been the long-abandoned site of what was once Six Flags New Orleans. During Hurricane Katrina, the theme park was leveled and has never reopened. Despite this, most of the attractions remained intact, acting like ghosts from a time when the location was lively and fun-filled, not colorless and decaying.
