Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, New Jersey, gave Aaron Chase, Adam Hauck and George Ryan the keys to the resort’s waterpark for some end of the season fun and snake runs down the world famous Colorado River ride.

 Mountain creek Waterpark used to be called Action Park back in the day. For a seriously good laugh read this wiki entry about it, I was injured there many times in the late 80's - early 90's.

 ''one seriously inebriated rider had to be rescued by the attendant lifeguard after his boat capsized following a collision'' LOL

 "Six people are known to have died directly or indirectly from rides at Action Park" They don't build them like that anymore LMAO

 "The speed at which riders met the end resulted in many getting wedgies and enemas from the experience."

 "A stick that was supposed to control speed led, in practice, to just two options on the infrequently maintained vehicles: extremely slow, and a speed described by one former employee as "death awaits."" LOL!

 action park was a really dangerous place... my mom was there one time when she was younger and saw a person go to the hospital after messing up their arm by getting caught in a net

 In reference to the slide with a complete vertical loop: "One worker told a local newspaper that "there were too many bloody noses and back injuries" from riders, and it was widely rumored, and reported in Weird NJ, that some of the test dummies sent down before it was opened had been dismembered." I'd try it..not sober though.

 "employees knew how to circumvent the governors and were known to do so for parkgoers. As a result, a standard small-engine car ride became a chance to play bumper cars at 80 km/h, and many injuries resulted from head-on collisions." sounds amazing!

 While I was watching this video I was thinking to myself, "man it sure seems like a lot of liability letting these bikers ride the empty water slides"...then I read the Wikipedia article, dear god

"Former employee Tom Fergus says the bottom of the pool was eventually painted white to make it easier to spot any bodies on the bottom"

 It's brutal how almost everything in there was so dangerous it got closed! "a fatal heart attack suffered by one visitor was unofficially believed to have been triggered by the shock of the cold water in the pool beneath the Tarzan Swing" what was up with the tidal wave pool?

 I`m surpised nobody got hurt.. According to the tradition...

 "Super Speedboats: These were set up in a small pond, known by staff to be heavily infested with snakes. They were supposed to be driven around a small island in the middle at 35-40 mph (56–64 km/h). While, unlike the land vehicles, there was no way to tamper with them and increase their speed, many riders nonetheless used them to play bumper boat, and one seriously inebriated rider had to be rescued by the attendant lifeguard after his boat capsized following a collision."

On July 24, 1982, a 15-year-old boy drowned in the Tidal Wave Pool.
Tidal wave pool? Seems legit.

 sweet vid, why oh why don't cannondale make the chase frame anymore? it was so sick and looked so clean, I'd buy another one in an instant!
  • + 2
 Maybe the sales were too small to keep it in the catalog?
  • + 2
 I believe it might have had something to do with the atrociously bad geometry of the frame.

 Chase has some custom version though. Remember reading about it...

 It looks super slippery in spots with tight, kinked transitions. I doubt they think this is their best riding, they are just messing around in the off season at an amusement park riding something that is not at all meant for bikes. Classic New Jersey with pizza delivery to the session.

 i know theyre just messing around and its slick and everything but i just thought that was poor for them, everything seeming stiff and unconnected
  • + 3
 I agree it was not super exciting.. but the riders were tasked with basically making something out of nothing. That concrete looked bumpy as hell with a thick layer of grease on it... most of us probably couldn't even get down it on a hardtail.
