Not to highjack this post
But I watched a news extra on Action Park and boy wete yall doing some crazy stuff.
The Johnny Knoxville movie Action Point was pretty funny too!
They also made a documentary about the place.
Some of the stuff was sketchy, but the wise would learn to avoid those rides. The rest was no more so than many other parks, also run by teenagers. The neat thing about AP was that it sort of legitimized a lot of the risky stuff kids (well, boys) used to do on their own anyway.
They had the formula cars like Malibu, karts, bumper boats, and one that stuck out in my my mind were mini armored vehicles where you'd shoot tennis balls at each other.
Now, kids grow up staring at screens, or at corporate parks used mainly to promote entertainment franchises.
