According to the credits it is Paramounts Great America.  After all, it is a Paramount movie.  :)

Identical? No... After Six Flags and Paramount bought the parks, they've gone their seperate ways. Six Flags has done more with the park though. (ie. rollercoasters)

I dont see anything great about SFGA. I live up around the Chicago area and go there frequently and even though they have an impressive amount of rollercoasters the only ones worth riding are raging bull, viper, and v2. The rest are very rough and need some work done on them. ( stay away from shockwave). The roughest ride in the park.

Ach. My girl had an argument about the Great Americas. She was so convinced that there was some relation between them. First starting with both having the huge pool fountain leading up to the Double carousel, then both of them owning a Demon.

What other similarities now?

There was talks of having a Beverly Hill Cops type ride but that QUICKLY diminished after someone SAW the movie. :) Actually, dont' know if that's true but it sounds right, eh?

They were actually identical when first opened. From the pool in front of the double decker carousel to the Intamin Triple Wheel, whizzer, tidal wave, turn of the century(later remade to demon). I do not know who bought the cali park first, but the SFGA was bought by Bally's/Midway before Six Flags. But the park used was Paramount GA.

Ok, Bally's/Midway, is that as in Bally's Fitness?
Also, PGA did not open with an Arrow looper. They got there's in 1980, while SFGAm was retheming the TOTC, now Demon.

Nope, both Great America's opened in 1976 with TOTC, and both rides were modified in 1980 to Demon. Trust me, I know, I was there! Riding TOTC at Marriott's Great America/Santa Clara in 1976 was the coaster that turned me into an enthusiast!
