A park that came to an ironic end

The park was started by three entrepreneurs: Richard Schuster, Thomas Shoemaker, Grant Richtmeyer, and it was initially presented as a safer park because it had no vert.  Schuster described the layout as a “rolling configuration” that had no "impact surfaces."

The park had two bowls, a slalom and a snake run.

Ironically, Off the Wall was possibly shut down by a wall itself.  In summer 1978, the borough sued the park because one of the its retaining walls was bulging outward and engineers said "there was a 50-50 chance" the wall would collapse.
