Summer is Coming... They Don't Make Amusement Parks Like They Used To

Action Park amusement park opened in New Jersey in 1979, and closed in 1996. In this documentary you learn about all that went on at the craziest park ever. I've always found amusement parks, theme parks, water parks, a right of passage for kid's. Some of my best memories growing up were around theme parks.

Too bad they don't make them like they used to. Or, maybe not. Worth fourteen minutes of your time. 

Not my content, but it seems to have vanished from YouTube, so I'm re-uploading it for others to experience. If this is yours, please let me know. Action Park was, for anyone growing up in Northern NJ or downstate NY, an incredibly fun (and even more incredibly *dangerout*) part of summer life.
