Action Park was an amusement and water park located in Vernon Township, New Jersey, United States, on the grounds of the Vernon Valley/Great Gorge ski resort. The park consisted primarily of water-based attractions and originally opened to the public in 1978, under the ownership of Great American Recreation (GAR). Many of its attractions were unique, attracting thrill-seekers from across the New York metropolitan area. Action Park’s popularity went hand-in-hand with a reputation for poorly designed rides, under-trained and under-aged staff, intoxicated guests and staff, and a consequently poor safety record. At least six people are known to have died as a result of mishaps on rides at the park, and it was given nicknames such as “Traction Park,” “Accident Park,” and “Class Action Park.” Little effort was made by state regulators to address those issues, despite the park’s history of repeat violations. In its later years, personal injury lawsuits led to the closure of increasing numbers of rides, and eventually the entire park closed in 1996.
Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on super soft Gildan 18500 hoodies via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods. With a large front pouch pocket and drawstrings in a matching color, this hoodie is soft, stylish, and a perfect mid-weight for laying in cooler weather or keeping the chill off during summer nights at the beach.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current sweatshirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the hoodie laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the sweatshirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam.
While our sweatshirts are made using premium, preshrunk cotton/poly blends, there can be some slight shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence or just want to be able to layer over various shirts, we always suggest going up a size as hoodies are meant to be a little on the big side 😎
All sizes are provided in inches!
