New Interest in Six Flags New Orleans Site

A developer based out of Minnesota has expressed the desire to redevelop the former Six Flags New Orleans park into a resort featuring a theme and water park.

The group, named 3 Wise Men Entertainment, has filed an application with the Industrial Development Board requesting approval of some $200 million in bonds for the project. There are many, many hurdles to cross before the plan is made real, but the developer hopes to start construction this May to open the park in September, 2011.

On a less encouraging note, the plan says the park will be branded with Nickelodeon characters, though Nick itself says they don't even know who the developer is let alone have plans to let them use the brand.

It'd be wonderful if a plan of some sort eventually falls into place for the closed park, but it'll be a long time before anything serious could be in place.
