It was all filmed at Rye Playland.  The gypsy fortune teller is still in the arcade.

The coaster they were on was Dragon Coaster.  It was built in 1929.

Actually not all of the rides shown were filmed at Rye.

In the beginning when Josh is still kid-sized and is too small to ride the "Super Loop" they are at a carnival, not a park.

But a fantastic movie nonetheless, and I want that gypsy fortune-teller to make me a kid again...

Brian, NO DOUBT!  That machine still scares the crap out of me, and I am 35!

on RCDB, it's called Playland park, Rye, NY...I just found them that way.... and I guess at 34, I'm kid enough, so I'll just have to ask Zoltar's help in planning ALL these '02 coaster trips...
