Most films nowadays resort to CGI and many other trickery to shoot and finalize their finished product. And while that’s impressive and all, there’s nothing that beats shooting in real locations.

The scene just feels way more realistic and relatable knowing it’s an actual place that exists. Take a look at some of these places that have hosted production crews before being left alone altogether.

Hurricane Katrina left a lot of New Orleans’ institutions destroyed, including their Six Flags theme park.

The New Orleans Six Flags was abandoned and the place didn’t make headlines again until it was announced that Jurassic World was going to shoot scenes at the theme park.

After the Jurassic World crew shot their scenes and left, the area was abandoned once again.
