That could never be in the US...look at all those potential lawsuits..holy fuck!
Not one loop?? Pussies.
actually they do exist in the us. plus we also have alpine slides. those are far more dangerous than this thing. when i was a kid, my dad flew out of the sled on one of those things and fucked his shoulder up pretty bad.
Fucking A would I ride that.
That's how I want to get to work every day. Or get home. Either or.
Get a job as the guy at the top that tells you when to go, and you are golden.
Pretty fuckin cool.
there was a park in jersey called astroland??? shit i 4get but anyway it was with a ski resort and in the summer u can ride these mechanic style carts down a concrete lane and you would get tore the fuck up!!!
action park in vernon. now called mountain creek. it was the most dangerous water park in the fucking world. that was all part of it's charm though. plus that was where my dad fucked his shoulder up.
bingo!!! thank you!
the 80ft cliff you jump off into water was awesome lol and the huge alpine slide aka enema slide lol
wait for the 19sec part that shit would tear you up
The high cliff was only 37 feet.
The nickname was "Traction Park"
I lived there for most of three Summers. Well, not literally, but went about 7 or 8 times per Summer.
They actually had water slide that did a 360 loop. It was only open for half of one summer. Too many concussions and whip lashes as people would not lay flat, they would panic and lift their head. Centrifugal force would do it's thing at the bottom of the loop and WHAM!
The Indy style go-karts kicked ass. They had four or five different go-karts, but the big ones you needed a license to drive.
I only wiped out on the alpine slide once. I got a mean road rash on my shoulder as of course I was wearing a tank top and bathing suit.
Oh, and it is open again. It is now Mountain Creek. Brought my kids a few years ago. The motor park side was closed as was the alpine slide.
Here is the Wiki page. Pretty much tells you what I did.
yea, it was a pretty great place.
Sounds like a great place. You can't find em like that these days...
How can that guy be so calm. I'd be screaming like a **** victim.
Here is a pic of the 360 loop slide:
It was an amazing place for a 19 year old kid and his friends. We would make a 3 hour trek to the place from L.I.
I only went to Action Park once but I vividly remember 2 things. The pain in the ass it was to hike up the mountain to go on different rides (or the same one again) in the middle of the fucking summer, and my friend needing a band aid or some shit and seeing an Asian guy who fell off the dolly halfway down the Alpine slide and promptly had half of his skin rubbed off. Dude looked like a burn victim.
the huge 4-6 people tube ride was the worst. you had to wait in line to carry your giant raft up a huge fuck hill. then the slide split at one point. if you hit that wrong, someone was getting hurt. if you ended up going in the tunnel, if you sat up you were hitting your head on the walls.
We had the Action Park equivalent - Peony Park. I loved the place, but that's because I was young and thought I would live forever. Every year at least one or two kids would drown in the gigantic swimming pool and myself personally got hurt on the roller coaster when it started to rain and the brakes stopped working. We came around the last corner at top speed and hit the cars in front of us. My brother in laws cousin fell to his death when one of the rides safety pins broke and he feel 60 feet on to his head. A toddler fell out of a tilt-a-whirl and I'm sure is still living in a home paralyzed from the eyes down.
