Zydeco Scream is a steel shuttle roller coaster located at Six Flags New Orleans in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. It has been closed since Hurricane Katrina hit the park in 2005 and is currently standing but not operating.
The ride was relocated to Six Flags New Orleans (called Jazzland at the time), where it opened on the June 10, 2000 as Zydeco Scream. It was repainted aqua blue with purple supports.
Hurricane Katrina hit the park in 2005 and Zydeco Scream was flooded, along with the rest of the park. Zydeco Scream has been standing but not operating ever since, has rusted, and its paint job has faded significantly. It is highly unlikely that it will ever operate again.
Zydeco Scream is an example of the much copied Vekoma Boomerang. The train was pulled up the first spike and released through the ride's three inversions: a cobra roll and a vertical loop. The train was then caught up the second spike and launched backwards through the three same inversions. It was then caught and brought slowly back to the station.
