It was pretty exciting when Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport (MSY) opened its brand new terminal in November 2019.

But what about the old terminal? It hasn’t been torn or repurposed for anything permanent just yet. Which made the empty main hall, gate halls, and baggage carousels perfect backdrops recently for a thrilling Red Bull Terminal Takeover by daring skateboarders.

The New Orleans Advocate shared some great photos of the event as well as the video below.
