We got this video because it has the old Ocean View rollercoaster in it. That rollercoaster has since been demoed. It was actually destroyed before I was born, but I've heard many stories about it from my parents, and my husband remembers it, so it was neat to see it. It can also be a lesson in late 60's fashion.

I was 6 years old when it came out in the summer of 1977. When I saw this movie for my first time for, I thought this just be another low budget film, but instead it turn out cool because of all the Theme Parks. What of course was the bad guy Tim bottoms who play a role of blowing up roller coasters hating the machines we ride. Since, it was a movie who in their right mind to do something crazy as blowing up roller coasters. We need thoughs thrill rides to keep us having fun from Disney Land in California to Six flags Great America in Illinois the state I live in. The Revolution Roller Coaster I saw it first in the movie Roller Coaster, and then with a different name in National Lampoons Vacation with Chevy Chase. Keep the Roller Coaster Enthusiasts Craze year round.
