Valleyfair appeared in the baseball movie Little Big League. The main character and his friends rode Corkscrew and The Wave. Other rides such as Enterprise, Ferris Wheel, and High Roller can also be seen.

Can't find anywhere else to post this... Must be the fastest facial expression changing ever.

Laidback Luke & Marc Benjamin's "We're Forever" video is filmed at Walibi Holland and has lots of footage from many of the coasters.

The 1983 horror movie "The Dead Zone" features Christopher Walken riding the Ghoster Coaster at Canada's Wonderland:

The British TV show Inbetweeners featured Nemisis Inferno. The Nintendo film The Wizard featured Universal Studios Hollywood.
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts

First movie with a rollercoaster POV

Postby Skramp » Sun Jul 31, 2016 7:58 pm

I did some searching but didnt find anything....so here goes.....What was the first movie to feature a POV on a rollercoaster? Since "Rollercoaster" was released in 1977, that was the first one I could find. Vacation features some but that was released in 1983. Can anyone come up with anything earlier?
Who was that again?

Is it specifically full-length films, or film in general (including short films or reels) ? If film in general, the earliest POV I can think of is dated to around 1904 involving the only known POV I believe of an actual switchback railway, taken at Folkestone. I believe you can easily find it on Youtube.

Edit: Looked it up, and the film is still on Youtube it seems, thankfully!

Not sure of this thread BUT, that was really cool footage of the switch back. I had never seen how they did the switch. That must have been something at the time. (It does look fun) cool video.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I know there was a movie in the 1960's called "This Is Cinerama" that was specially made for large theaters with wrap-around screens;the movie started with footage on a old wooden coaster(though I forget which one).
