Knotts in knocked up.

FYI,

There is a segment in the bonus features on the dvd "knocked up", that features knotts berry farm. It is under the name "rollercoaster doc".

I did not think cedarfair allowed filming of movies in there parks. At least that is what I have always heard about cedarpoint.

Knotts has a slower season. Cedar Point doesn't. I think they probably ended up shooting those scenes in a lighter season to accommodate camera crews and less gawkers.

Well they wouldn't have filmed at Cedar Point anyway.

Keep in mind Knott's Berry Farm is in the heart of Orange County (or "The OC" as you non-Californian's like to call it) and a close proximity from Los Angeles -- where Universal City and the studio that produced and directed the film is located.

They just filmed scenes of the actors riding the Silver Bullet coaster if I recall. That shouldn't take more than two or three hours.

I'm surprised Knotts isn't in more footage than it is. Of course being in Anaheim, it's probably close to 1 1/2 hours from Universal.

I'm always amazed by how often Pacific Park shows up in movies and commercials. I mean, it's everywhere. In "Thank You For Not Smoking", it has a prominent scene.

Think about it, lots of movies film in the LA area, and film corps basically throw money at a park to film there. Why not accept? I figure Pacific Park is the least willing to hold out, so there you go.

There's a spot in that rollercoaster doc feature where it's subtitled because you can't really make out what they're saying - during that part there's something about "this costing us $200,000" - I wonder if that's a general production cost or the price to shut crap down while they filmed.

5 or so years back I received a press kit from Pacific Park and they literally had tons of information listing all the filming done there and basically were advertising for studios to use them.

They even had detailed stuff printed up about what the park does to aid in filming - they obviously enjoy that extra income.

There have been two movies that I know of that were shot at Cedar Point. So, I don't believe they have a rule against it.

I'm trying to think of the name of that gay themed movie from a while back. It took place in the 80's in Sandusky, and it did feature aerial footage of the park. Not sure if there were any in-park shots.

I believe it. If you spend a lot of time around there, you're sure to see camera crews. Pacific Park even has a page on their website for Location Shoots:
