Most memorable coaster moment from tv or movie.

What is your most memorable moment from a movie or television show?

 

Mines from a movie is National Lampoon's Vacation when they went to Wally World (which I think that most of know by now that that thats SFMM). When I see them ride Colossus and Revolution it brings back good old memorys of how those rides use to be.

My other memorable moment from a tv show is a epsisode of 90210 when they went to SFMM and it think it was around the time Viper first opened. When I saw them on the ride I was terrifed of the thought of me riding that ride. After I saw them on that ride I was like I'm never gonna ride that ride!

I would have to also say Vacation.  The best part is after running all the way to the entrance, the look on Clark's face when he saw they were closed.  That was hilarious.  It was also funny when he punched the Moose in the face.  One thing that was strange is that they were the only car in the lot.  You would think that they would wonder why no other cars, such as employees, were there.  It also didn't seem to be too early in the day.

As far as a TV show, I guess the Brady Bunch at KI.

Definately National Lampoon's Vacation, and when I was looking like a fool on the discovery channel in back of magnumdan riding Magnum.

I also wondered about Vacation and why they weren't a little suspicious to be the only car in the lot.  Then I realized that, like usual, Clark Griswold is the master of denial.

The Purple Rose of Cairo. There were a couple scenes shot in the station of the Bertrand Island Wildcat. Sort of a "last hurrah" for that ride. It was torn down soon after.

The Hulk in House on Haunted Hill, when they wanted a "screamer" instead of an "arm loser". On TV when the Bradys went to Kinds Island.

Agreed that Wally World was a big hit...but I hate seeing all those folks get to ride an Anton the way it's supposed to be, when I get the d*&) OTSR's...

But really, let's not forget the two movies that really got us (coaster lovers, that is) into the picture.  RollerCoaster, with Timothy Bottoms, and the original POV, This is Cinerama...ask your parents/grandparents if you haven't seen any footage from that...

Movies--- definetly Vacation... no question

For TV... did any of you ever watch Step by Step...  The opening sequence was all shot at a park (im not sure which one) and it ends with a great shot of a wooden coaster.

Yeah sure, Vacation and Brady were good and all, but I'm going to go the esoteric route and say:

Movie: Summer School KBFs corkscrew was the first coaster I'd ridden that was in a movie I'd seen

Television: The Steve Harvey Show They went on a nice little trip to IOA and it was the first footage I saw of the Incredible hulk Coaster. That ride looked so fantastic...too bad the reality was much different

Besides, if we were really shutting down people we disagreed with, would Jeremy (2Hostyl) still be around? :) I think not. - Jeff 1/24/02

TRUE ROMANCE   with Christian Slater and  Patricia Arquette has some very intense VIPER SFMM  footage

I always liked the way they computer animated an ocean beside COLLOSSUS SFMM  on STEP BY STEP 's

I always hated that opening on "Step by Step" because it was just too fake. I mean, they aren't even really riding the coaster. It's like a blue screen where they put it in later. I think that's just sad!

Within' movies... I sure wish they did some movies filmed in amusement parks besides ones located in California. God knows what percentage of films using amusement park footage (or actual location in the park) are California parks!!

Even so... I'll still take National Lampoon's Vacation.

Encino Man, Viper was/is awesome! It was my fave coaster at the time due to the movie. Brandan Fraser & Pauly Shore are a riot, love the Roaring Rapids parts. The look on their faces as the train crests is priceless. Funny how Link says they went to "Mega Mountain."

Vacation takes the cake as well.

I liked it when Ricci Lake (sp?) rode the roller coaster at Tilted Acres with her big ratty hair in HAIRSPRAY!!!

And, I liked it in Edge Of Seventeen when the main dude worked at CP.

I would say the movie, Incino Man, starring Brendan Fraser, Sean Astin, and Pauly Shore, when Pauly  and Brendan went on Viper at Six Flags Magic Mountain. That was totally awsome!

I like the footage (totally symbolic) of Thunderbolt at Coney Island in Requiem for a Dream.  It was an amazingly beautiful, and stark film and the dreamy, surreal cinematography contrasted with the decay of the coaster well.  If you haven't seen it, do yourself a favor (over 18 only) and view it.  Not for the faint, but a must see.
