PS - those haircuts can't be 70s as the ride opened in 81 ;)
Timbers crew 08
yeah, was my favourite movie for a long time!
Of the sequels I only saw "Powaqqatsi" and was quite disappointed by it - nowhere near the drive of the original film - more like an animated slide show with some nice music.
(not that that would be a bad thing in itself, but too little as a follow-up)
Looking at the video again, the connection to K. is rather loose (the little french-horn fanfare at 2:23 was triggering that for me)
The music in the "Bat" video tries to make the slo-mo coaster look creepy.
To use slo-motion recordings of suspended coasters for VJing however seems worth investigating :)
1981 - ok, let's make that "early 80ies haircut"
(I guess they do all look a little like Luke Skywalker)
P.S. I always wondered what became of the old 180-degree-cinema coaster movies they were showing at various fairs and theme parks around that time - I would really like to see some of them again now.
Its of course easy today to say: look at that design desaster! Well, look at it! "Alpenflug" opened in 1974 on the Munich Oktoberferst and was torn down two weeks later, due to the same design flaws. Especially since Arrow was owned by German company HUSS at that time. They just HAD to know that they were on the wrong track with their design.
Notice the extreme head shaking that takes place on the reverse POV shots!
"It came from Arrow Huss" and went back there again in no time.
