Hey, I really hope this isn't a repost topic- I searched and searched and didn't see anything similar.
I just saw the topic about the home-made dark ride, and it got me thinking about my favorite scene from a movie involving a ride: (WARNING: NSFW, but I don't think it's really any worse than any HHN stuff these days)
I just love the surreal atmosphere in this scene (and the rest of the movie) and especially the little black light diorama- the whole thing reminds me of the old Museum of Wax in Newport, OR when I was a kid.
Honorable mention goes to the Trabant from Sandlot, sorry about the quality on this one:
So what are your favorite rides featured in movies?

Good call sir, I remember hearing the DVD cast commentary (yes I am that much of a nerd) that they really WERE a lot of fun, and that the adults got to ride them in the evenings after filming stopped. That was actually a really interesting commentary, I recommend watching it if you like the movie, it actually has shots of the actors while they're doing the commentary and not just an audio track
How about the Mine Car Chase scene in "Indiana Jones & The Temple of Doom"?
That was such an obvious coaster set up, when I was watching it for the first time, I couldn't believe they never did build something like that. And yes there is "Temple of Peril" in DLP and "Raging Spirits" in TDL. But they're not the same as what could have been created and built.
