I saw some footage of a coaster in the original "Dead Zone". I don't know what the name of that coaster was either.
Does anyone know some other movies that have some coasters in them that I can check out?
My band "The Cedar Kings". "Ordinary Day" a trip report in song.
3 ninjas high noon at mega mountain
There is a CSI episode with a coaster accident in it.
There are also two CSI episodes from the first season where Grissom rides Manhattan Express, and I believe Speed.
"Thrill" is also a good cheese movie, altough I think Antonio Sabato Jr. is HOT! HOT!
And there is "The Lost Boys" which features some footage from Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. :-)

If it's not that, it's probably Viper at SFMM.
I'd say probably 75% of all coaster appearances in movies, TV or advertising are one of those two coasters.
Long live the Big Bad Wolf
The Bullet (wooden roller coaster) also represented a whole bunch of other stuff too, facing your fears, facing your mortality, blah, blah. It did show some decent POV and view of the front seat footage. I wanted to see which coaster or park it was, but they compressed the credits at the end to show coming attractions for some other program.
Anyone else seen or heard of this one?
And of course, one of the best (worst) films set in a park has to be "Carnival of Souls." It scared the bejesus out of me when I was a kid.
