Weren't the Crazy Barrels from Magic Mountain featured in the 80's movie Zapped! with Scott Baio?

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Sudden Impact (Dirty Harry 4) and the final showdown at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

Clint Eastwood shoots the bad guy standing on top of the Big Dipper roller coaster, he falls off, crashes through the glass dome of the carousel, and gets impaled by the horn of one of the unicorn carousel figures (I'm pretty sure the guy was dead by that point).

Watch clip from 4:35 to 5:30.

In terms of coaster as comedy device, I humbly submit this gem from 1936, featuring the legendary Cyclone Racer.



Classic slapstick on a classic coaster. Requiescat in pace, Cyclone Racer.

The ghost train "Route 666" from The Machinist is pretty awesome. I'd be scared to ride it.

Twisted Colossus, I305, Skyrush, Iron Rattler, Phoenix, Maverick.

I love me some Iron Wolf...even if it means a Macaulay Culkin movie.

Been you to have any spike, man?

Woody Allen's Annie Hall is worth watching purely because he lives in the hotel underneath the Thunderbolt Rollercoaster at Coney Island.

I've gone pantless!
