It seems allmost all movies with Mchuligy Colckin (spelling?) have roller coasters. I remember in "Getting Even With Dad" he was on a inverted coaster, but what was it? Also in Richie Rich, I think that was a standup

I think they were Batman:The Ride and Demon at one of the Great Americas. Not positive which one. I think I remember the coaster in Richie Rich being Iron Wolf. Can someone confirm me here?

in Richie Rich he was on Iron Wolf. I'm not sure what the other coasters were, but if it was B:TR and Demon then that would be SFGA

Well, it was made in 1992, so it was Batman: The Ride at SFGAm...because Batman, the worlds first ever invert, opened in 1992 at SFGAm.

Actually it was Demon and Top Gun at Paramount's Great America.

Yes, Screamer is right. If you watch the movie, you'll see that it's Top Gun, because of the final corkscrew and helix over a lake.

Easy to see how Top Gun at PGA could be confused with a B:TR, considering how similar in appearance (not to mention ride). Also, bith of the Marriott parks have identical Demons (created from identical Turn of the Century's). And people say how SF lacks creativity, sounds to me like their not alone...I seem to recall 2 rides named Ricochet going to Paramount this year. Not bad-mouthing either (too much), just noting...Somehow Busch and CF keep creativity, AT LEAST in namig the rides....

Since I'm not the most fond of Cedar Fair anyway, I just thought I'd put in a few words here...
1)Power Tower 2)Woodstock's Express 3)Berenstein Bears Country 4)Camp Snoopy 5)Knott's Camp Snoopy 6)Soak City 7)Corkscrew 8)Mad Mouse 9)Boomerang 10)Halloweekends 11)Ripcord... and I could probobly go on, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Yeah, I know you forgot that Cedar Fair also owns MA, KBF, VF, DP, and WOF and not just Cedar Point. *sigh* Even the great CP couldn't prevent themselves from having a "Jr."Gemini or "Mine Ride" or "Wildcat" or "Corkscrew" or (?1K!years?)Millennium(?Steel?) Force(!?!)*gasp* That's just ludicrous, huh? You can't get anymore creative. Hey, at least they can make a name of a little bug sound like something cool. Or "accidently" theme rides with names that make the coasters... what they are? "Mean" Streak... "Disaster" Transport.... Or theme with the name on limited and obvious purpose...Gemini... Blue Streak...Whoa! What happened there?!? I must have gotten off topic. Sorry guys! ;)
I would say, "Go Busch!", but with only two parks, it's a lot easier for creativity althought overall, I still see them as the most original and unique feels outside of Disney and IOA.

Yeah it's PGA because it takes place in San Francisco.

i remember being at the park a couple days bofer they were shooting those scenes and the sign for demon was different. It was kinda cool.
I was also at the park around the time tehy were filming BEVERLY HILLS COP 3. I got to see them set up and practicie the operation of the triple wheel...i mean "spider."
