A movie called "Hairspray" came on TBS today. I noticed a good portion of it was filmed in an amusement park. Kiddie rides, flat rides, musik express, carousel. And then there was a brown woodie in the background with flags going up the lift hill. It was filmed in 1988, does anyone know what park and what coaster?
To tell you the truth, it looked like Dorney Park. The movie was set in the 60's. I noticed Ricki Lake, Sonny Bono, Jerry Stiller.
We sam a movie on AMC a couple of weeks ago (think I saw it years ago) called rollercoaster. It featured Revolution at SFMM. It was about a madman trying to blow-up the roller coaster with people onboard the day it opened.
Rollercoaster also has Rebel Yell at PKD. I really like that movie, especially how they used POV's. Did anyone else notice when on the Rocket how fake the dummies looked when the cars flew off. However many people (GP) think this could happen, but (even back then) weren't there sensors to prevent it? I also like the ending of it, never saw it coming:)
yeah, this thread is about the movie hairspray, not rollercoaster!! i dont know the answer myself but this person asked a question about what coaster was in hairspray, not what rollercoasters are featured in other movies. im not trying to be a dr phil, but he did ask a pretty good question and id like to know the answer myself...... ------------- t h e r e s a monkey in my pocket and he stealing all my change, his stare is blank and glassy i suspect that hes diranged.....
Yeah monkey, but he already had that question answered a few up. It was the Thunderhawk at Dorney Park. And Rollercoaster!! is an awesome movie, so I say talk about it, this thread was started about coaster movies.

no its cool, the movie is probably good, and i didnt know if that was an answer everyone agreed on, so i didnt know, and coasterspotting was for just that ONE coaster, if you want a discussion about the movie rollercoaster, start one, then other peeps will know what your talking about in the first place and join in.

Yup, SFMM's legendary Viper. Damn, that movie made it look better than it really it, better than any Beemer.
I got a thrill just watching the train rocket into the first loop. What a rush & I wasn't even riding it! :) Plus got a kick when Donnie pulled out a banana on the mid course brakes & ate it. His comments were hysterical, well to coaster enthusiasts I guess.
Didn't 'Hideaway' starring Jeff Goldblum & Alicia Silverstone have several scenes set in a spooky abandoned amusement park?
