Hmm

Rollercoaster - Paramount's Kings Dominion, Ocean View Park, Six Flags Magic Mountain, One in Pittsburgh area

Death of Ocean View Park - Obvious there

Lost Boys - Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

National Lampoon's Vacation - Six Flags Magic Mountain

Spy Kids 2 - Six Flags Over Texas

Richie Rich - Six Flags Great America, well Iron Wolf

House on Haunted Hill - Island of Adventure, Incredible Hulk really.

I'm sure there's alot more .. as for the KISS one .. I believe that was some older park .. I've seen it, but can't remember off the top of my head.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

1977's Rollercoaster was an interesting movie, but one that came out at the wrong time, I think. Universal should do a re-make, give it a higher budget, get permission to use some high profile parks (It could even be a joint venture between Universal and another studio or two)

I'm not sure who could play George Segal's part, but I'd probably pick the eternally creepy Crispin Glover to play the bomber that Timothy Bottoms originally portrayed.

Oh no, I hated that movie "Rollercoaster". The idea of people blowing up our favorite rides? nooo

Dorney has been in at least two that I know of.. John Water's "Hairspray" and a singing Nun movie.. as well as (apparently) being featured in an independent film which is slated to come out this year about kids who break into a "carnival" and run the rides themselves.

(I was actually there for the Hairspray filming, in 50's-ish clothing, but I have never found myself in any of the scenes).

If they remade Rollercoaster today, at the end the mad bomber would get a slight cut on him after the Revolution train strikes him, given the way the ride runs now...

...and if the bomber were really sadistic, he'd leave Psyclone standing.
