Need help identifying coaster in movie

Sunday, April 7, 2002 9:09 PM
There was a movie on Sci-Fi Channel today called "Quicksilver Highway" (1997, Christopher Lloyd, Matt Frewer in a made-for-TV snoozefest). In one scene, Matt's character is in an amusement park walking toward a coaster. It was a steel coaster (looked like Arrow) with white supports and red track, and looked like he was moving towards a helix. There was a swinging ship in the foreground, and he walked past a building with the name "Foghorn's" on it. I've tried to narrow it down a may be at SFGAdv or SFMM from the best I can tell.

Me: "Is it May yet?" Wife:"No."
"Is it May yet?" "No."
"Is it May yet?" "Shut UP! Go play with your K'Nex, Jim!"

No swinging ship near Viper @ SFMM.

Gotta be SFGAdv?? (I've never been, so I need some help here...)

Could it be GASM at SFGAdv?

Ninja at SFStL used to have red tracks and the swinging ship is located close by. But I have no idea without seeing the show. Also it's hard to see Ninja's helix from a vantage point where you would also see the swinging ship. So I don't think this is the coaster, but maybe.

My friend told me that he thinks it was a carnival. I don't know cause I've never seen it so it's anyone's guess.

I can't think of a good signature.

I'd guess the same as HurricaneGeauga, the coaster is in the background of several movies and it's just a small Morgan. I guess Morgan's can easily be mistaken for Arrow's.

First, thanks to everyone who gave it a shot. Second, after looking it up in rcdb, it is the WestCoaster at Pacific Park. It almost looks like an Arrow coaster. In the movie, they used the actual entrance (I thought Pacific Park was a made up name just for the movie...oops, sorry if I offended anyone!)
