Rollercoaster DVDs

Wednesday, September 5, 2001 4:24 AM
I've always wanted to pick one of these (or two, three) up, but I've been afraid that they would put really cheesy music in it, and not just let the ride sound effects be enough.


Can anyone recommend a good Rollercoaster DVD?  I feel like I'm missing out, and also feel like I should support the format if I expect them to keep making them?  Any suggestions?

I rode "X" and never went upside down.

I'd go for the Cedar Point special "The World's Largest Amusment Park" from the Discovery Channel. Very good, though it could have been 10x as long! I don't have it yet, and I don't know if it comes in DVD or not, but I'm pretty sure it would, coming from the Discovery Channel and all.

I just bought one off Ebay for 9.70, it is in mint condition! It is called " America's Greatest Roller Coaster Thrills" - ' The Ultimate Scream Machines' I like this DVD, It has interviews, histories, angle choices, etc.... Try Ebay- I always find good deals there!!

Theones labeles as "America's Greatest" or "World's Greatest" are pretty good in my opinion. I own four of those DVD's, and enjoy all of them. The latest one titled "Rollercoaster Thrills: The Ultimate Scream Mahines" which came out in 2000, is by far the best because it takes advantage of the DVD format by utilizing a full menu selection, secret features, and bonus material.

I wasn't too happy on some of the views it presented (Superman: Ride of Steel... almost points the damn camera at the track instead of foward)... but it was a good attempt and shows off a lot of coasters from around the nation!

Does anyone know of any new DVD's/videos by the 'Worlds Greatest' team coming out this year?

I kind of thought it was a yearly thing... and in 2000 & early 2001, they came out with some memorable coasters they could use!
