Welcome to John Allen's


"Wooden Coaster Club"!



Jazzland Holiday Hoorah 2000, cut short by weather closings, was a fine opportunity for those who ventured out 12/23/00, 12/26/00, and other days while open!


Welcome 2001! The 21st Century:

Our first Wooden Coaster Club event will be in 2001! We welcome you to come along for the wild ride! Details not yet available.

Jazzland officials graciously permitted us a brief on-site photo tour of their park's construction site after Christmas 1999. The resulting construction photos are included.

Jazzland opened the weekend before Memorial Day 2000. The 2000 Season passes were sold in New Orleans by Christmas 1999. The 2001 Season Passes will soon be available.
