Six Flags New Orleans/Jazzland and Jurassic World

The original post for the Katrina damaged Six Flags New Orleans has been very popular on Modern Day Ruins.

The abandoned theme park and ruins has been home for a few movies that have been filmed there:

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014)
Killer Joe (2011)
Stolen (2012)
Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (2013)

But with box office numbers, the biggest to date is now Jurassic World.  Filming of Jurassic World began in June of 2014, where Jurassic World's Main Street was constructed.

The fun part is that even though the set has been demolished, the painted parking lot still outlines Jurassic World's Main Street:
