Roller Coaster Show

Wednesday, July 4, 2001 12:59 PM
I was scanning Direct TV yesterday and on AMC, there was a movie called "Roller Coaster" or something of the sorts. It was about a guy who blew up rollercoasters all across the US. Anyway, it featured Paramount's Kings Dominion and the climax took place at the "Opening" of Revolution at Magic Mountain. Just wondering if anyone has seen it before and if it is available on video, cause it was actually a good show, from what I saw joining in half way through it! Thanks guys!

I have also seen that movie. It is called "Rollercoaster" from 1976 or 77. It stars George Segal and Timothy Bottoms (George Bush from Comedy Central's "That's My Bush"). It also has great first performences by Helen Hunt and Steve Guetenberg(not sure about speeling). *** This post was edited by mij on 7/4/2001. ***

It was because of that movie, that ACE was formed. For the release of the movie, as a promotional event, the producers found a bunch of rollercoaster fans, and got them all to ride together. Afterwards, the group decided to do it more often, and decided to start a club. Ace was born. [Well, that is story I remember;)]

They held the world's first ERT session for movie promotion, too. BTW, i'm not sure if it's available on VHS, but it is on DVD.
