Volvo TV Commercial

Wednesday, November 8, 2006 10:49 AM
Anyone seen the new Volvo TV commercial with the wooden coaster and park in the background? I don't think it's SFMM, but I'm not sure as I've only seen it once. Anyone have any idea what coaster and park are featured?

I've seen it more that once, and it's not SFMM. It looks like it's a smaller older park, but I haven't been able to place it yet.

There looks to be a skyscraper (ride) in one of the shots, and it looks like an older wooden coaster.

I thought a Skyscraper/skycoaster combination in a park, along with a wooden coaster, *should* be enough to ID the park...

Not that I could tell where it was... ;)

It definitely looks more rural than SFLR. The woodie appears to be unpainted with a deep rich brown color. PKI you might have it.

Yay for a TV ad without SFMM or Westcoaster in it, although driving on that pier would probably be possible. ;)

Unpainted? Crap. VF's High Roller is white.

SFDL?

Couldn't be a Six Flags park. The father is teaching his daughter how to drive in the parking lot. At Six Flags there'd be another coaster in the way. :)

Haha...too bad volvos are so uninspiring. I saw that commercial as well as was more intrigued with the rollercoaster. But anyhow...this is not 'autospies'

Does anyone have a pic from the ad by any chance? I don't watch much TV so I haven't seen the ad, but I'd like to get a look at a pic to try and give some insight.

I havn't seen the commercial yet. There is a good chance I never will, I am in the process of buying DVD Box Sets of my Favorate Television Programs. At the rate I'm Buying them by January 1, 2007 I'll have AT LEAST 20 Entire Collections of TV Shows, each collection having from 60 to 180 Episodes. These TV Shows (Along with the Movies I'm Buying or already own.) will be enough to watch to watch AN ENTIRE EVENING of Television for AT LEAST A YEAR!

If you are wondering why I'm doing this its because I am FED UP with enduring nearly 20 Minutes of commercials for each Hour of Program. :(

BTW I'm Discintinuing my Cable TV Subscription, I'll be able to use the Money I'm Saving to (Naturally) RIDE MORE ROLLER COASTERS!

LOL, and he'd have to pay 15.00 bucks to boot!

Dude, that's like, thousands of dollars. That's the great thing about commercials: they make the shows free. And now stations like ABC have a lot of their shows available the next day online with a total of 2 mins of commercials for the entire hour.

And if that's not good enough for you, just get the torrents.

Or just do what you're doing... whatever.

IIRC the positioning of rides at ValleyFair negated that option....didn't really notice colors, per se....

Since it's a Volvo commerical, shouldn't they have used a B&M coaster...."boxy" trains... ;)

It's not as expensive as that, SFogswim. I bought most of the DVDs either Used or from "Bargain Bins". All in all I estimate I spent about $400.00 for them. All I know is being able to watch your Favorate TV shows without any Commercials is .........PRICELESS!

If I recall correctly the commerical also has a full-circuit Vekoma looper in it.

Yes it did appear to be a VeComa or Arrow looper(which is what initially made me think of SFMM's Viper).

I've got DVR and we paused the commercial and crept through it for a clue. None. You can see a swinging ship in motion, too.

Could it be it's not a real park at all and they just digitally filled in images from various places?

Or how about Darien? Do they have a Skyscraper?

^^ I'm positive it wasn't an Arrow based on the lift hill supports.
