Can we stop with the SFMM eulogies? It's far from getting torn down, it's not even for sale yet!

 

Magic Mountain gets used quite a bit in TV and movies because it's the closest amusement park to Hollywood that has roller coasters. Entourage got lucky because Goliath just happens to have the same colors as Aquaman's suit.

acutally my dad was watching the buissness channel (the one that has the stock reports scrolling across the bottom) and he called me in cause they were saying that Magic mountiann was already for sale along with a couple other six flags parks.

OMG I was kidding, I was referring to both the people who keep saying "LETS MAKE A PETITION BECAUSE MARK SHAPIRO IS AN ASS!" and Wes' "SAVE THE MOUTAIN" T-Shirt. And thanks for taking me so seriously....

I caught your drift, Colin. I think I probably find it funnier than you do.

On the tv show "Flash Point" a young couple is being chased by the cops and goes to a park called "Northern Dreampark" What park is this in real life? A google search turned up nothing.

This is a Canadian show (who knew something good could come out of Canada ) that also runs in the US on CBS.

 

There is a coaster with orange track and green supports. It is an hang and bang also. It is also in an colder climate because there is quite a bit of snow on the ground.

That would be Canada's Wonderland. The coasters you described are Flight Deck and Time Warp and there actually some screencaps on the IMDB page for Flashpoint of this episode.

Not sure if everyone was able to catch it or not, but last nights episode of Flashpoint (a new Canadian swat team type show that apparently is getting big numbers in the US as well) featured a storyline where two parents kidnapped their child which had just been given up for adoption and took the baby to an amusement park in the dead of winter.

 

The park was Canada's Wonderland, which was renamed to "Great North Adventureland" or something like that. There was several shots on the Merry Go Round but the pinnacle was a tense showdown on the lift stairs of Flight Deck (formally Top Gun)...

 

For those who haven't seen it or haven't watched it yet, I will not spoil the ending, however, for anyone looking to see any off season park footage or whatnot, you should check out this episode.

 

It's Season 3 Episode 9 for those who want to hunt it down...I belive www.ctv.ca would have it streaming on their site. ( http://www.ctv.ca/servlet/ArticleNews/show/CTVShows/20071221/home-sniper/20090406/ ) is the exact link.

 

Enjoy everyone

 

** Thanks to whoever moved this, didn't notice this thread **
