There isn't much this month. Only thing appealing for early October is on tomorrow morning.

This show is a one hour program on the history of American amusement parks.

• 30 Roller Coasters in 24 Hours?
DSC, Sun Oct 13 10:00am EDT

Not sure if I should mention this one after all the blasphemy over Coasters of the West.

Yet another case of thrill rides breaking down on camera

• Rollercoaster
AMC, Fri Oct 25 8:00am EDT

If you have yet to see this movie, I highly suggest that you watch it. Hopefully will see James Bond peforming rescues at Cedar Point in his next movie ;)

If you're mad because RCT II isn't in 3D, then I suggest you sits ya' buns down and watch Jimmy and Carl go to Retroland.

I am only interested in 30 coaster in 24 hours. I assume that is about the people who broke the record in California?

I agree that Rollercoaster is an awesome movie. It's one of those great 70's disaster movies that I can watch over and over and somehow I still find it suspenseful. There are some great amusement park scenes from the time too. Be sure to catch it if you haven't seen it.

Yes, SF. That'd be the one. It was actually pretty good (seeing as though it was only west coast - in fact, only Californian - coasters.)

..and you'll get to see some idiots @ SFMW's Medusa/PGA's Demon (I believe it was both). It adds a bit of contraversy to this documentary, which makes it a little more entertaining. You'll also see more 'obscure' or smaller coasters than normal.

The only one I really need to see is Rollercoaster because I made the mistake of not taping it last time it was on! That won't happen this time though...

Anyways, thanks for the guide Vertigo.

I was looking on the TV guide channel today in the early afternoon, and I saw one on Travel Channel on Busch Gardens Tampa. I watched it for 5 minutes, it was pretty cool.

I lost my hat on Poison Ivy. How pathetic.

Rollercoaster is a great movie! I have only seen it come on AMC three times and I have seen a lot of it all three times. It is really cool seeing "opening day for The Revolution" in the movie (I know it wasn't the actual opening). It glorifies the fact that it was the first successful coaster with a loop and it is great seeing how the people of the time reacted. I have to agree that it is suspensful every time it's on! It is just a great movie! (And you also see a very famous actress in her younger days)
