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.

George Clinton Documentary (2010) Parliament/Funkadelic

 

In the intergalactic continuum of funk, the name best known by earth people and aliens alike is the Atomic Dog and Mothership Captain himself, George Clinton. Born in North Carolina and raised in Plainfield, NJ, Clinton chose music as his language to communicate a message of love, respect and dance-floor artistry to earthlings the world round. His extraterrestrial brew of rock, soul, Motown and doo-wop made for a potent funk brew that became the recipe for two beloved 70’s groups – Funkadelic and Parliament – both of which he helmed, and populated with musicians who would themselves become some of the brightest stars in the 70’s and 80’s, including Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins.

Clinton’s own star blazed ever more brightly through the 80’s, when hits such as Loopzilla and Atomic Dog shook dance floors in all quadrants of the known universe. An entire generation of rappers grew up with his music, and in turn, made his beats and grooves the DNA of Hip Hop. But bad business deals hounded Clinton from the outset, and with finances further diminished by a proclivity for mind altering chemicals, his earthly empire crumbled, leaving him all but destitute today. On this exclusive episode of Unsung, George Clinton reveals the story of his long strange ride.

While “Unsung” dealt briefly with Clinton’s legal battles, it failed to mention Clinton’s victory in regaining control and ownership of 4 Funkadelic albums, which include “One Nation Under A Groove” and “(not just) Knee Deep.” Also, Clinton recently prevailed via settlement with Capitol/ EMI and won an appellate ruling in his battle against music giant Universal Music Group.

Additionally, ‘UNSUNG’ failed to mention the positive things Clinton is doing like:

Donating 25% of the Funkadelic catalog and $10K on behalf of the band to the Barack Obama Green Charter High School in Plainfield, New Jersey this school year.
Donating 10% of the catalog to 2 local Plainfield, New Jersey churches and 1 temple.
Clinton’s on going support for education through his Mother’s Hip Connection Education Foundation.
Clinton and Parliament-Funkadelic still tour regularly in high demand and love to be near their fans.

Clinton hoped that more would have been said about the other members – past and present – who have contributed to the success of Parliament – Funkadelic and inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

“I do this for my band, no one is greater than the other, not even me,” Clinton states.

“If it wasn’t for band mates like William ‘Bootsy’ Collins, Eddie Hazel, Bernie Worrell, Walter ‘Junie’ Morrison, Garry ‘Starchild’ Shider, Michael ‘Kidd Funkadelic’ Hampton, Dewayne ‘Blackbyrd’ McKnight, Glen Goins, Jerome ‘Bigfoot’ Brailey, Ramon ‘Tiki’ Fulwood, ‘Billy Bass’ Nelson, Cordell ‘Boogie’ Mosson, Phelps ‘Catfish’ Collins, Clarence ‘Fuzzy’ Haskins, Ray ‘Stingray’ Davis, Calvin Simon, Grady Thomas, and a host of other wonderful musicians who lent their time and talent, I could have never created this style of music without them,” says George.

Clinton is committed to passionately seeking justice through the courts, not only for himself but for band members like the late Garry Shider who recently died and, like Clinton, lost his music catalog to Clinton’s opposition.

“That’s why I fight, for my band, it’s only right” says, Clinton.
