what park is that in beverly hills cop part 3? it has a black Arrow looper, a green B&M of some sort and a kiddie dragon coaster. the movie was made in 1994. sorry if this has come up before, but i couldnt find it when i did a search.

Its not THE Shivering Timbers, its just Shivering Timbers. And its pronounced Michigan's Adventure.

It was at PGA. Demon was the looper and Vortex was green back when it opened. They tore down the Triple Wheel for Inverigo iin 1998.

That give's me an idea. Parks should have one "carnival" type coaster. This would be perfect for a "mid-range" coaster. Something for the younger kids to ride, when they are too big for a wacky worm, and too small for a small looper. It would also be cool, because the parks could change the coaster every year, without any significant change in operating costs. They could just have a ride que and a small concrete of asphalt lot, and rent a new coaster from an amusement company each year.

That also gives me another great idea - Six Flags or Cedar Fair should open a carnival amusement ride company. They could use their brand name and purchasing power to offer the absolute best in mobile carnival-style thrill rides. This would be great ! Then the rides would have a higher standard of safety & innovation. We would have better rides at carnivals, they would have more and better flats and small rides in the parks + it'd be an additional source of income. Just think, they could have a TRUE "County Fair" themed area of the park, that could easily change several times a season. It solves several problems at once -> More income for the company, a better variety of rides, and it fills the gap between they kiddie rides, and the mega-thrill rides. I hope someone in the industry reads this and gives it serious consideration ! :)
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

When I was there for the ACE Coaster Con in `94 or so, the triple wheel was still missing the car that falls of fin the movie. Wires were dfangling from the arm. It was neat.
