Great America Tidal Wave commercial!!!

Finally, it's surfaced!

Yes, it is really White Lightnin' at Carowinds - which opened a year earlier. Thats Pat Ast as the professor's assistant - Pat is famous for her role in Reform School Girls (1986?) with Wendy O. Williams (Plasmatics) and Sybil Danning.

Great stuff!!! I've been waiting to see this for a looooong time. Thanks to Steven Wilson at

All I get is a blank box with a red X in the upper left corner. Oh well, I'm sure it was a fab commercial....

No red X for me. It worked fine both today and yesterday. I'm using OSX. Flip4Mac is the software that I am using to view the video. I think that it's a Windows Media File, so maybe you need to update it or something.

Funny video, by the way. It makes old tech look exciting. ;)

It is a windows media file, something I can never get to boot up properly on firefox unless I switch to IE mode.

Can't stop watching this thing... note the bunny ears slippers!

And of course, the erroneous elevated track going into the loop on the model. I wonder if an original copy of this is locked away somewhere at one of the Great America's.
