I produced a documentary series. It's about the craziest/most dangerous theme park that ever existed. It was based on a lecture I gave.
Part 1 is available on Mashable right now. Part 2 comes out tomorrow. It is really fun. I hope you enjoy it. If you want to spread it around, that'd be nice to. Let me know what you think! I

Action Park has earned a reputation as the most insane -- and possibly the most dangerous -- amusement park that ever existed.

I'm about to join this Mashable Hangout to discuss our Action Park documentary. Come join and ask questions!
 
This week, +Mashable premiered a two-part video series featuring Action Park, the New Jersey amusement park that some have called "the world's most dangerous." The videos featured former Action Park employees and visitors who recalled some of the most unbelievable rides and favorite memories of the park.

Over the past few days, hundreds of people have also shared their own personal stories about one of the America's most notorious attractions, or disbelief that such a place even existed. To keep the conversation and the memories flowing, we're hosting an Action Park-themed MashTalk Google Hangout today. 

Join one of the producers of the documentary +Seth Porges, two former Action Park attendees, Mashable Business Editor +Todd Wasserman and Business Reporter +Seth Fiegerman, and Community Producer +Ryan Lytle as we take a look back at the world's most dangerous amusement park.

Do you have any memories of Action Park? Share them with us and we'll try to address them during the Hangout.

You remind me of Ricky Bobby when he doesn't know what to do with his hands but, instead of asking what to do with them you just keep your arms flailing around the whole time you are on camera. You weird ass bastard.
