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?

I just remembered a movie I haven't seen in years:"Summer School" with Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley.Basically Mark Harmon takes his students to Knott's Berry Farm and they ride the Roaring 20's Corkscrew;in the movie the coaster is called The Screwdriver :lmao: and they say something about the "third loop" :lmao: !!

Did my donkey title just change???

In Captain America: the first avenger, Steve Rogers (Captain America) mentions that when he and his friend Bucky were kids, Bucky made him ride the Coney Island Cyclone and he threw up. I thought that was pretty funny coming from a superhero. I also liked that the statement was also historically accurate. The cyclone would have been brand new when they were kids. I can even picture that story in my mind.

In the opening credits of the tv series The 100, the "camera" flies over what is an abandoned park, where
a ferris wheel can be seen poking out of the trees and overgrowth around it. And a coaster appears
to be nearby...

Just something I noticed.

Has anyone seen the new Autozone commercial?

Kind of funny. Family is getting their car ready for a road trip to a park and just as they say "Home of the 3 hour lines and $9 sodas", the camera pans and you can see they're at SFMM! ;)

I just watched the recent Tom Hanks movie "Hologram for a King" (kind of a "meh" movie if you ask me), and right at the beginning there are a couple of shots of Hanks riding some wooden coaster in a bizarre and seemingly pointless opening sequence. Anybody know what coaster it is?
