Binge will screen documentary Class Action Park later this month.
Documentary Class Action Park is based on the world’s most dangerous water park, Action Park, that had its heyday in the 80s and 90s and was a staple for anyone who grew up in New Jersey. For the first time, fans new and old will be able to experience first-hand the insanity of this dangerous water park via real-life footage and testimonials.
Class Action Park is the first-ever feature-length documentary to explore the legacy, and truth behind a place that long ago entered the realm of myth. To some, New Jersey’s infamous Action Park was the most spectacularly fun amusement park on Earth: A place where unruly teenagers were given free rein to go gonzo on strange contraptions that seemed to violate the laws of common sense (and perhaps physics). To others, it was an ill-conceived death trap. One thing is sure: It’s the type of place that will never exist again.
Shirking the trappings of nostalgia, the film uses investigative journalism, newly unearthed and never-before-seen documents and recordings, original animations, and interviews with the people who lived it to reveal the true story for the first time. The documentary features an original score by The Holladay Brothers.
Class Action Park. Streaming from September 30 on Binge
