Earlier this year, the IDB turned down TPC-NOLA's questionably financed proposal to open a new amusement park on the site. Now TPC-NOLA is back with the same proposal except this time with wax figurines in it.
The wax figures that for years adorned the now-closed Musée Conti Historical Wax Museum in the French Quarter could turn up again in an unexpected place -- the old Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans East.So they've upped their ante. Your move, skywriting Noah's Ark guy.
But only if the agency in charge of the site picks one particular developer to revamp it, which may be a long shot.
TPC-NOLA Inc., a company that wants to resurrect the old Jazzland Theme Park that used to occupy the 220-acre site, says it has reached a deal with the Musée Conti to incorporate the wax figures into its proposal.
