Action Park Is Back! The Most Insane Amusement Park Ever

Action Park Traction Park 6 Dead

Growin’ up in the tri-state area, everyone had a story of a relative or friend bein’ injured at Action Park, it was like a suburban legend. So craze to see it’s open again.

 

Action Park is an amusement park located in Vernon, New Jersey, USA. The park was open from 1978 until 1996 while it was owned and operated by Great American Recreation. In 1996, the park closed and was re-opened under new management in 1998 as Mountain Creek Resort and Crystal Springs Resort ski area. On April 2, 2014, the original management, who has since repurchased the property, announced that Mountain Creek Waterpark would be renamed back to Action Park beginning with the Summer 2014 season, based on an increasing rise in nostalgia, as current adults recount their experiences at the park in the 1980’s and 90’s.

The original Action Park featured three separate attraction areas: The Alpine Center, featuring an alpine slide, Motorworld, and Waterworld. The lattermost was one of the first modern American water parks. Many of its attractions were unique, attracting thrillseekers from across the New York City metro area. The park’s popularity went hand-in-hand with a reputation for poorly designed, unsafe rides; underaged, undertrained, and often under-the-influence staff; intoxicated, unprepared visitors; and a consequently poor safety record.

Action Park Injuries Up In '86

At least six people are known to have died as a result of mishaps on rides at the original park. It was given nicknames such as “Traction Park”, “Accident Park”, and “Class Action Park” by doctors at nearby hospitals due to the number of severely injured parkgoers they treated. Little action was taken by state regulators despite a history of repeat violations. In its later years personal-injury lawsuits forced the closure of more and more rides and finally the park itself in 1996.

DJ SeMeN SPeRmS at Lincoln Center for Repo Man After-Party Tuesday 1984 Punk Cult Classic






REPO MAN
Tuesday, December 15 at 7:30pm
If you’ve seen it, you’ll never forget it. If you haven’t, here’s your chance to discover Alex Cox’s inimitable indie landmark Repo Man starring Emilio Estevez and featuring music by the likes of Suicidal Tendencies and Black Flag. After this special screening, keep rocking with an after-party and open bar (thanks to Stella Artois and 42BELOW) in the Furman Gallery. DJ SeMeN SPeRmS will spin tracks.

Alex Cox’s 1984 debut remains an unclassifiable anomaly—not to mention a cult classic. When punk-rocker Otto (Emilio Estevez) loses girl and job, it’s only the beginning of a most surreal downward spiral. Conned into helping a lizard-like repo man (Harry Dean Stanton), Otto’s situation mutates from merely depressing to life threatening. Shady cops, UFO freaks, CIA operatives, and all manner of additional yahoos converge in a manic hunt for a ’64 Chevy Malibu and the Top Secret Whatsit stowed in the trunk. Cox’s film may be an oddity, but it’s also a spot-on slice of Eighties zeitgeist—an uncanny time capsule of an America in the grips of the Reagan ethos, and all the attendant cultural aggression that era fomented. Shot by the impeccable Robby Müller, the film features music by Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies, Fear, and The Circle Jerks (who also appear in the film).

Don’t Make Me Go Back, Mommy!

    • The US National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA) “lost knowledge” of how to make a mysterious but very hazardous material codenamed Fogbank. As a result, the warhead refurbishment programme was put back by at least a year, and racked up an extra $69 million.
    • Ghost Ride The Dog!
    • Pfizer pleaded guilty to the charges, and will pay a fine of $1.195 billion, the largest criminal fine ever imposed in the US for any matter. The company’s subsidiary Pharmacia & Upjohn will also forfeit $105 million, for a total criminal resolution of $1.3 billion.
    • In a massive security breach, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) inadvertently posted online its airport screening procedures manual, including some of the most closely guarded secrets regarding special rules for diplomats and CIA and law enforcement officers.
    • I don’t make anything up. Americans themselves admit that drugs are often transported out of Afghanistan on American planes. Drug trafficking in Afghanistan brings them about 50 billion dollars a year – which fully covers the expenses tied to keeping their troops there. Essentially, they are not going to interfere and stop the production of drugs. They engage in military action only when they are attacked. They don’t have any planned military action to eliminate the Mujahideen. Rather, they want to make the situation more unstable and help the Taliban to be more active. They even started negotiations with them, trying to direct them to the Central-Asian republics, to destabilize the whole region and set up their bases there.
    • But even providers who use it on a daily basis are unclear how potent it can be. A recent study found 30 percent of physicians who abused propofol actually died. And last year, Dr. Brent Cambron was found dead in a storage closet at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. There was a half-filled vial of propofol and other drugs surrounding his body. The anesthesiologist had been battling drug addiction.
    • Holy Fuck! Thanks Vinnie.
    • It was not immediately clear why about 40 red-and-white pills out of the 2,400-pill-strong collection would be poisoned, but the police say they fear the drugs could be lethal if swallowed.
    • Thanks Patrick Nybakken
