Action Park!  
This is so funny!! I can't stop laughing at how ridiculous this is, and that it was able to go on as long as it did hahaha!
I got such a kick out of this!

Oh man, I love GMM. Glad you posted this, I remember this episode was really fun.

I haven't really seen too much of them to be honest. I think it was a recommended video when my morbid curiosity was looking up theme park accidents or something. I like those list videos that they have on youtube of a variety of things and topics.

Yep, I don't do waterslides. We had something up here called Thrill Ville USA. Emphasis on had. They had this four-storey waterslide that had been designed by someone who didn't know what physics are, and I nearly fell off on the first bend. So did my aunt. And everyone I know who ever tried to go on it.

So it was completely unsurprising to hear that some kid actually did get flung right out and caused the park to get shut down.

Screw waterslides. Especially ones that go upside down.

I don't do waterslides either, or pools, or water for that matter.

Oh wow! That's crazy! Least they shut down after the first incident. I can't get over how long this one stayed open.

I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't the first incident, tbh. The official reason they shut down was rising insurance costs, so who knows?

But yeah no. Never again.

I must say, I never heard about Action Park (Even when it closed down and such; I should have been old enough to notice, but nooo... Did not.). I know there is one slide existing which has a loop, but it is also very steep and you need to protect yourself in several ways IF you wanna use it (I have seen it on TV once... It was not like the slide in the Action Park they showed, but just seeing it on TV scared the hell out of me :D...). Anyways, I feel bad for the people who did get injured or who died on these rides; and especially the fact the owner of Action Park didn't insure it for a year (?) really pisses me off. :\ I hope the newer version is going to be more secure, really... Would you want to go there?

I might go there, just to see it. But it's in America, so that's the tricky part about it lol. It's also under a different name.
I feel bad for the people hurt and killed too, but the insanity of it all is what amuses me. Apparently the people who did go had loads of fun because there were no rules like all the other parks.

OMG! They bought more ambulances and created their own insurance company!!
"Chances are you're not gonna die, and that's what makes it super fun" hahahaha omg, I can't believe it's now open, I actually want to see this!

That's what I find so funny about it!! How crazy it all was and how they had to go to all those lengths.
I watched the documentary they had mentioned which was in their video description and apparently everyone loved it there! There were absolutely no rules, and that's what they loved about it XDD
I wanna see it too!

I found this very amusing.

well I suppose a LOT of people like living on the edge...
I wouldn't even THINK of going down most of those rides! damn.

That's what a lot of people who went there (and didn't die) loved. There were no rules they could do what ever they wanted, they could drink and get drunk haha.

Me either haha, but a part of me wants to try those water ones. Not the slide or the ones that killed people, but the other ones.
