Anyone see this? Was filmed at Six Flags Elitch Gardens in DEnver. Was a horrible movie, but some extremely good shots of Twister 2 as well as SideWinder where a car gets stuck in a loop. It stars Hulk Hogan as Dave Dragon.
In the movie you can see the changed some names of the rides but you can also see the old sign names in there.
Cheese film but if you feel like wasting 2 hours of your life and want to see rollercoasters might wanna check it out.

It wasn't that bad of a movie...... but it was pretty bad. ;)
I always have to laugh when I see little kids out smarting the bad guys.

Any movie with Hulk Hogan is a winner for me.
Also, with Jim Varney (RIP), it's simply stellar.
... actually I do kindof like the movie even though it was a kids movie :)
Shocks... pegs... lucky! .... you ever take it off any sweet jumps?

I love this movie. It's so bad and dripping in cheex whiz it's good and it's got Elitch's in it. But mostly it's fun for me to see the park I've visited for years and worked at for 6. It's about the details. They use the spider's insides for the mechanical workings of the Sidewinder (the "emergency brakes") and the Avalanche. There is also some footage of rides that don't exist in the park anymore like the Sky Ride, Holland Express, and Mine Shaft. I miss the Express it's way better than the Chance Thunderbolt the park has now.
I heard that Hulk Hogan and Lonnie Anderson weren't the nicest of people but Jim Varney was awesome and hung out with the park employees at the team cafe.
Dave Dragon, go Dave Dragon, and the Star Force Five!

It's a *cheese* movie indeed, which made me laugh. It was so bad that it was hilarious.
It was almost as cheesey as "KISS Meets The Phantom of The Park" but that is what makes those movies awesome. They are SO horrible but it's fun to make fun at them. :-)
