Happy National Waterpark Day!
On July 28, laughter and fun are just a couple of the requirements on National Waterpark Day! We recommend bathing suits, too!Coincidentally, one of those states is New Jersey, which had its national day yesterday. That leads me to the special video from Defunctland already picked out that I promised twice, Defunctland: The History of Action Park.
Waterparks around the world provide thrilling, water plunging rides for those who seek the white-knuckle hydro powered slides. For those who prefer to relax and unwind, lazy rivers, wave pools and spas in tropical scenes satisfy these vacationers.
With so many options to choose from, waterparks can be more than just a portion of a vacation. They can be the destination. In the United States, nearly every state has a waterpark.
Defunctland takes on Vernon, New Jersey's infamous water park, Action Park! Watch and learn the full history of this dangerous amusement park.Between this video and the one on America Sings, I seem to have picked the more gruesome attractions to feature here. I'd like to promise that future selections won't be this grim, but after National Roller Coaster Day, the next time I plan on using a Defunctland video will be for Halloween. Trick or treat!
