My dad founded New Jersey's Action Park, widely believed to be the most dangerous theme park in the country. I worked there for 10 incredible summers. AMA.
I'm Andy Mulvihill, son of famed Action Park founder Gene Mulvihill. I worked at Action Park through my teens and beyond, testing the rides, working as a lifeguard in the notorious Wave Pool, and eventually taking on a managerial role. I've just published a book titled ACTION PARK about my experiences, giving an unvarnished look at the history of the park and all of the chaos, joy, and tragedy that went with working there. I am here today with my co-author Jake Rossen, a senior staff writer at Mental Floss.
EDIT: Logging off now but will be back later to check this thread and answer more of your questions! Thanks to everyone for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the book!
