Class Action Park

The documentary is about a theme park in the 80’s that didn’t have any rules and did not seem to have safe rides.  It’s a bit like watching 90 minutes of car accident taking place.  I spent much of it trying to figure out which rides I would go on and which I would not.  While the film is fairly light the last few scenes really put a different light on the park’s operators.

Movie title: Class Action Park

Movie description: Class Action Park explores the legend, legacy, and truth behind the 1980's water park in Vernon, New Jersey that long ago entered the realm of myth. Known for its dangerous, unsupervised rides and lack of regulation, guests of Action Park expected to walk away with injuries and were lucky if they made it out alive. Shirking the trappings of nostalgia, the film uses investigative journalism, original animations, recordings, and interviews with the people who lived it to reveal the true story of Action Park.
