“[Action Park] one of the first American waterparks. Many of Action Park’s attractions were unique, attracting thrill-seekers from across the New York City metro area. The park’s popularity went hand in hand with a reputation for poorly-designed, unsafe rides; inattentive, underaged employees; intoxicated, unprepared visitors; and the consequently poor safety record.”
- The Action Park Wikipedia page
This week on The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show, Action Parkologist Seth Porges drops by to explain what made the park so dangerous, how they stayed open, and the legendary looping waterslide (pictured above). Plus! A bonus tale of Action Park survival from Chris Gethard, who is actually quoted on that Wikipedia page.
The Jeff Rubin Jeff Rubin Show comes out every Tuesday and is available iTunes, YouTube, and JeffRubinJeffRubinShow.com.

This was one of the funniest ones yet!

Listen for the story of that death slide alone. Look at it! A water slide with an inescapable circular loop that drains into… oh no, never mind. There’s no draining! Park visitors skidded across a hot rubber mat after destroying their spines.
An episode of Headbangers Ball was filmed there, that’s how metal this hell park was.

Holy s—t this is amazing!
