Action Park was known as the world's most dangerous water park, and by watching this vintage video, you can see why!

According to Wikipedia, at least six people died as a result of accidents at the original park. Action Park was given infamous nicknames like "Traction Park", "Accident Park", and "Class Action Park".

They even sold BEER at the park!

Does it look like a whole lotta fun? HECK YEAH! But, knowing how the general public is, and how their brains shut off when they are at a water park - it was trouble waiting to happen...
