Director: Seth Porges
In the way of so many documentaries, this one was about 85% of the way there, but I couldn't go with them the last stretch of the film when they try to "make sense of it all". Class Action Park (2020) is a feature-length doc about the notorious amusement park, Action Park, formerly located outside of New York City that has, since the early 00's, spawned legends of how out of control the place was, and, in fact, dangerous. Open through the 1980's, the park was one of hundreds, if not thousands, dotting America.
The first half of the film is hysterical as you take a look at the rides and hear tales of how the place was owned and operated by a former penny-stocks Wall Street tycoon banned from the market by the SEC (I think). He took his Randian concept of personal risk and responsibility as a businessman, applied that to amusement park attendance, and built a two-sided theme park - one side water-based rides like slides and wavepools, and the other being go-karts. For anyone growing up in the 1980's, you'll see a lot of things you also took part in. Bumper boats, go-karts, water slides. But our go-karts at Malibu Grand Prix had speed governors. Theirs did not.
