    Action Park! (The worlds most dangerous water park)

    Just recently found out about this place. It looks ridiculous, the stories coming out of this place are amazing! The park is infamous for injuries and lax enforcement. GoKarts that were modified to go 50mph and treated like bumper cars. Snake infested ponds, dangerous slides including the infamous Cannonball Loop. An Alpine Side that had poorly maintained karts that resulted in many injuries including a death.

    The park closed in 1996 and was sold to a larger company which renamed it Mountain Creek. They removed a lot of the original rides including the injury prone loop slide. They added more modern rides including redoing the speed slide with a less steep angle so a net would no longer be needed to keep people from falling out. In 2010 it was bought back by the original owners. They are brining back the Action Park name and a loop slide.

    If given the opportunity to travel back in time and visit Action Park would you do it?
    I know I would.

    I hereby nominate Quentin for "Best Micechat Link of 2014" for:

    Inside the World's Most Dangerous Amusement Park

    (I liked part 1 better than part 2.)

    This will be made into a funny movie with the park owner as an Ed Wood type. Any producers: let me write the first draft!

    I am normally not one for riding risky rides, but boy Action Park looked like a lot of fun! I would have loved to ride in a miniature tank and that bobsled course is awesome!
    Reading the comments on the article were actually more interesting than the article itself.
