Coaster in 'One Hour Photo'?

Monday, March 17, 2003 6:57 PM
Ok, I hate these types of threads too.... but this one has me confounded....

In the scene where they are showing Sy's living room wall with all the pictures on it (not the first scene, but the one where the cops come into his place), there is a reverse shot of a woodie's lifthill in one of the photos. Anyone know the coaster in question?

It's just been bugging me. (and if someone's already answered this, I apologize in advance.... I came up empty in a search.)

I just rented this movie a week ago and I'm already forgetting the details... but if I remember correctly, it was Colossus at SFMM. There was that line in the movie about taking the kid to Six Flags, and, sure enough, there were pictures.

Yes, it's Colossus at SFMM. I caught it in the theater. It's a little hard to catch, but if you look carefully, you can see the orange track of Goliath. I'm not sure, but the image is either flipped (mirrored) or it's taken from the lift hill. It just looked funny.

As for Six Flags, when they said that, I tried to figure out where they were. California would make sense because of the picture, but it seemed really tree-y; too much for the West. And you can get away with saying "Six Flags" in a movie and not reveal the location because there are so many of them. ;)

Um...have you *been* to SFMM? The park has tons of trees and shade.

I think the movie was probably shot in Vancouver. Then again, they would have probably taken advantage of the mountains. But no, it wasn't California.

Yes I've been to SFMM. I was commenting on the place they live in. It's very tree-covered, not like the West. You sound like you haven't seen the film. They never stepped foot in an amusement park.

By the way, the West has tons of trees depending on where you go. But I'd imagine that the picture was shot in Vancouver BC. They shoot a LOT of movies there. I tried to get a look at the license plates, but the editors did a good job.

Opps...sorry, Haux...I misread your post, thought you were commenting on SFMM. My bad ;)
