He is known to have invested in areas like cellular broadcast, cancer drugs, robotics, and real estate development. Gene started with little money then. He came to Vernon in 1972 and was almost down with no money. One of his companies, Vernon Valley Ski Area went bankrupt. However, he was ready to take risks. So, he started with an amusement park. He installed an alpine slide down a steep ski trail, water slides, and a go-kart track. He later renamed it, Action Park.

Action Park was opened on 4 July 1978 and Eugene came up with two opening-day promotions: a tobacco spitting contest and a Dolly Parton look-alike competition. He also added additional features like restaurants, spas, and shopping outlets. Action Park was a success however, there were some setbacks. There were at least over 12,000 visitors during the weekend but after two people died, the company was stalled from further progress. A state investigation led to a 110-page indictment against the companies that operated at the park. Executive boards and Eugene himself were not spared. Mulvihill pleaded guilty to five insurance fraud-related charges. Finally, the park was sold to Canada-based Intrawest, which now operates as Mountain Creek Waterpark.
