Coasters/Park in a movie what park is it???

Wednesday, April 10, 2002 7:07 PM

I am sure someone has asked this before but I couldn't seem to find the answer, but in the movie National Lampoons Vacation they go to Wally World, what park was used for the filming of this? We have tried combing the credits at the end and it doesn't seem to mention what park was used. Thanks for any help.

According to the Internet Movie Database, http://us.imdb.com/Locations?0085995 it was Six Flags Magic Mountain...

X-Flight, the movie you are referring to is the Whole Nine Yards, again according to IMDB http://us.imdb.com/Locations?0190138 , it was filmed in Montreal, which leads me to believe it was La Ronde - which is located in Montreal.

Then I guess it wasnt a B&M invert since they just built one this year! lol. Oh well it still looked like a B&M, maybe it was a huge arrow looper, do they have one?

The Matthew Perry/Bruce Willis flick was The Whole Nine Yards and was filmed in Montreal, Quebec at La Ronde, currently being managed by Six Flags.

Wally World was really Six Flags Magic Mountain, and the coasters seen were Colossus, Gold Rusher, and Revolution.

Mega Mountain was Elitch Gardens and stared Twister II and Sidewinder.

I think Bruce Willis and Matthew Terry were in the Whole Nine Yards toghether which took place in Montreal. One part of the movie had somone who worked in a medivak theme park, what you probably saw was Top Gun and Dragon Fyre.

Does anyone rember "The Whiz" and the coaster? They turn the Coney Island Cyclone into the yellow brick road and they were walking up the hills dancing.
