When they visit Gringott's in the Harry Potter films. Heck of a ride to get to that vault. Was a great setup for a dark ride (and glad it became a reality)
This is my super lame signature where I will mention the words "roller coaster" and "theme park"

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

I haven't been on the Gringott's ride yet, but I've gotta say I'm a little disappointed they didn't stick with the design from the movies. They could have made the coolest Ultra-Twister ever!

1) National Lampoon's Vacation. Still one of my favorite movies to this day, and not just because roller coasters were in it. Chevy Chase was gold in this movie.

2) Anyone remember in Child's Play 3 (?) the final scene where Chucky tries to do the curse on the little boy in the Haunted House dark ride? That was pretty good.

3) Sandlot/Goonies ride scenes. I still enjoy those older movies too. I watched the Goonies over and over when I was a kid.

4) In the new Vacation movie, Ed Helms punches a guy to get in front of him on a coaster. The guy had a Platinum Pass and got to skip the line, but it was the last train of the day so Helms wanted to get on. The new version will never live up to the original, but I thought it was super funny that they were fighting over who got on NINJA. Who in the right mind would do that? :lol:
I'm actually not a kid; it's my nickname. I'm the youngest guy at my job. Only until after I created my account did I realize it made my sound like I'm 12. "Giddy up"- Cosmo Kramer Finally got an avatar!

Final Destination 3

I love how realistic it is :lmao:

But in all seriousness the Sandlot scene is great. One of my favorite parts of that movie.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Disneyland itself provided the setting for the big chase scene/finale of 40 Pounds of Trouble, a flick Tony Curtis made for Universal back in the early 1960s. Here's a long clip that shows how the park looked back then.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

This entire movie was an acid trip
Is this a trick question?
