Elvira and amusement parks.

Monday, October 20, 2003 8:29 PM
Since its Halloween , I figured I would bring up the Mistress of the Dark, Elvira.

I was wondering if she is doing a live performance again this year at Knott's Scary Farm? How have her performances been at the park in past years?

SFGAm is showing Elvira's Superstition again and I actually enjoy this motion simulator movie. It would obviously be better if it was utilized with a more state of the art simulator than the one SFGAm has, but its still better than Space Shuttle America.

Are other parks showing Superstition this year for their Halloween events?

When it comes to Halloween, Elvira is the showcase in the minds of many. It would be great if she did a tour during Halloween at some of the parks across the country besides Knott's.

Ah Yes, the Elvira show at Haunt. It was a very fun show. That show was discontinued year before last. :(

She has a show in the motion simulator theater at SFKK for Fright Fest, but I haven't seen it.

Superstition loses its appeal after 1000+ viewings.

I saw her show at Knotts in 2001. Not only was it awful but it was basically one big commercial for her second movie, which as far as I can tell has never been released.

Well Chernadog, I guess if I saw it 1000 times, I would be damn sick of it.

Since this isn't the case, and it was my daughter's first viewing of it, the movie is still entertaining.

I like the show as well. It's great on SFMW's HUGE I-MAX size Iwerks theatre screen. I always forget how big the screen is. Sucks that the 3D only works half of the time, but like you Chitown, I enjoy the change.

It's sad, really. I used to love it. It is among the best movies available for iWERKS motion simulators, really, but when you operate the ride, you get tired of seeing any of the movies.

I've also seen Thunder Road (From Dollywood), The Rattler, and Pensacola: Wings of Gold over a thousand times each.

PKD and Six Flags Great Adventure are showing it. It sucks and is really bad if you ask me. They need a new one 3 d ride.

The show at SFKK should be rated! If you have small kids beware because she has on an outfit that reveals much if you know what I mean. All the guys standing around were like "woah...." and staring. She also makes a lot of comments such as "keeping 'abrest' of things" I don't think this is a good thing for kids to watch personally and there should be a warning outside for parents. To me that is not family entertainment, it seems aimed more at an older crowd.

Becca.

Is this your first time seeing Elvira? She has been around since the early 80's. So what that she is showing cleavage. Its not considered nudity.

What kid is going to know what she is referring to by saying "keeping abreast" of things? Overall, she is perfectly suitable for kids to see.

Yes, it was my first time seeing her so there was probably the initial shock of seeing that. I just don't think it was right for the age group that was in there. Kids understand more then what you think they do.

And about the cleavage, I am female and I don't want to see it. I guess it's a woman's right to show it but don't show it to me! The guys loved it, judging by their reactions when she came on the screen! What guy is going to complain?

Guess I know not to watch her again.

Oh please, Elvira used to be on television from 1981-1993 hosting "Evira's Movie Macabre". If her schtick would pass muster for television she's ok for an amusement park...

Sometime Political correctness goes a little too far, IMHO. God help you Becca (this is meant toungue in cheek) if you ever go to a Renaissance Faire. They use a ton more double entendres than Elvira does and there's kids all over the place. The Sturdy Beggar's Mud Show comes to mind when they come up with their team chants. (One "team" is Sparta and one team is Troy") The Troy people's chant is "Trojans, Trojans we will never break!" LOL! ;) And don't get me started on the cleavage there! Lordy, lordy, lordy there's so many corseted women there I strain my neck to try and to get caught looking when my wife's around! ;)
