WATCH: 'World's Most Dangerous' Waterpark Documentary Coming to HBO — See the Trailer!

The thrills and spills of the "world’s most dangerous amusement park” are about to hit HBO.

In September 2019, PEOPLE shared the news that the first feature-length documentary about the now-closed Action Park in Vernon, New Jersey, was in the works. And on Wednesday, it was revealed that the film will officially premiere on HBO Max on August 27, with a new trailer, above, dropping along with the news.

Titled Class Action Park (a nod to the many lawsuits filed against the park), the film sheds light on the waterslide park's gruesome history. A hot spot for many kids in the New Jersey area in the 1980s and ‘90s, it became infamous for both thrills and absolute chaos — including countless injuries and six fatalities linked to the park during its 18 years in operation.

Created by filmmakers Chris Charles Scott and Seth Porges, the documentary will feature unearthed clips and recordings, newly discovered documents, original animations and interviews with people who visited the park and lived to tell the tale — including celebrities like Jimmy Kimmel and Johnny Knoxville. 

“He really didn’t think he did anything wrong,” Andy recently told the Washington Post of his father. “He thought he had a clever way of reducing his cost for insurance [but was] sloppy in the way he executed it. I can tell you, he did not stay awake at night worrying about lawsuits. My dad was not a worrier, he was a doer.”

Class Action Park will premiere on HBO Max on August 27, 2020.
