Does anyone know what coaster is featured in the Bob Evans commercial? I believe the commercial is fairly new, and I can't figure out what the coaster is.

It looks like the Schwartzkopf at SFoG. Can't think of the name right now. My second guess would be Shockwave at SFoT.
I like how they put the name "Wildfire" on the front of the cars to match their line of Wildfire meals. Why not use the coaster actually named Wildfire?!?

What channel did you see it on?
Am I really that shy?

The Schwartzkoph at Sfog is Mindbender.

I've seen the commercial on more than one channel.

Hey guys.....this is my first post on Coasterbuzz but am a big fan of the site. I can answer your questions regarding the Bob Evans commercial. The commercial was filmed April 9 on Shockwave at SFOT....a sign was placed on the nose cone to reflect the Wildfire name. There were 7 local ACE members who were involved with the filming (myself being one) along with several local actors (one of the perks of being an ACE member). We rode about 40 times that day (7am to 7pm) and got paid for it....quite handsomely I might add. Since we don't have Bob Evans in the Dallas area, none of us have seen the finished product but will all receive video tapes of it courtesy of the ad agency. We're hoping some of our best moments don't end up on the cutting room floor...LOL. Hope this answers your question!
