4453ArticleOldSchool80sThis is so awesome! I love Goonies and I have always thought about traveling out to Astoria. Very cool how you were able to tell the story though the eyes of your son. What an awesome trip.Our Goonies AdventureJun 17, 2018View
4452ArticlejkatzWow! Those are some great photos. I liked reading about the Wagon Train events as well. It must have been fun to spend summers with the same group of people each year.Wagon Train VacationsJun 17, 2018View
4451ArticlejkatzI've heard many a horror story about Action Park (or Traction Park, as it's sometimes called). You using a Simpsons picture made me laugh because to me the place always sounded like it could be a location on the show. Even though it was horrifically unsafe, I'm sort of glad it existed and am a little sad I never got to visit it. It makes for some great stories.A So So Day at Action ParkJun 16, 2018View
4450ArticlemickyarberYeah, it was a pretty magical time for sure. I’m so glad my mother hung onto all the pictures too. I gained them in my possesion a few years ago, and have wanted to write about it ever since.Wagon Train VacationsJun 16, 2018View
4449ArticleNLoganI have ridden on many a alpine slide. Hurtling at breakneck speed down a concrete shoot with no way to steer other than leaning and a lever for a break, what could go wrong?A So So Day at Action ParkJun 16, 2018View
4448ArticleSupermanWagon Train sounds like a really cool event. It's too bad that it had to come to an end, but at least you have the memories.Wagon Train VacationsJun 16, 2018View
4447ArticleNLoganAwesome Mick. I loved the old pictures. I like how specific memories of how you received toys or read the magazine are tied in. I can remember reading specific issues of comics on trips or receiving a particular toy also. I participated in Mountain Man rendezvous for several years that had various games and competitions and we dressed up, and a pioneer trek once that had wagons and handcarts that were similar.

4446ArticleSupermanI'd never heard of Action Park before. Given your experience and the bit of information I saw when I Googled it, I guess that's a good thing.A So So Day at Action ParkJun 16, 2018View
4445ArticlepikachuloverI read about Action Park on reddit. They used to have those bus day trips. They were usually to somewhere in Nevada to gamble and they were "no kids allowed" trips. A So So Day at Action ParkJun 16, 2018View
