This Insane Waterpark From The 1980s Reopened In New Jersey… And You’ll Want To Visit

Traction Park. Class Action Park. Accident Park. The “world’s most dangerous waterpark”… If you were a teen or twenty-something between 1978-1996, you probably remember this Vernon, New Jersey experiment in extreme. With its heart pounding thrill rides, there was no place like it in the world.

For a blast from the past, check out this compilation of footage and commercials from the 1980s, uploaded by YouTube user My 1980’s Action Park Channel – Vernon, New Jersey:

Do you have any Action Park stories to share? I’d love to hear them. Have you been back since the reopening under original ownership?
