LA GUERRA s‘A meeting of a number of wise ladies was held at the Queen’s palace to advise as to what should be done to save the land. Some proposed to fight like soldiers; others objected and said that women were not trained to fight with swords and guns, nor were they accustomed to fighting with any weapons. A third party regretfully remarked that they were hopelessly weak of body.

‘”If you cannot save your country for lack of physical strength,” said the Queen, “try to do so by brain power.”

LA PAZ

‘On the following day the Queen called upon all men to retire into zenanas for the sake of honour and liberty. Wounded and tired as they were, they took that order rather for a boon! They bowed low and entered the zenanas without uttering a single word of protest. They were sure that there was no hope for this country at all.

‘Then the Lady Principal with her two thousand students marched to the battle field, and arriving there directed all the rays of the concentrated sunlight and heat towards the enemy”. Excerpt from Sultanas dream by Rokeya Hossain

Compartimos un interesante artículo de la Web Coaster-net sobre por qué las montañas rusas no han triunfado en las producciones de Hollywood, mencionando de paso algunas de las apariciones memorables de estos gigantes de la diversión en varios films.

Rollercoaster on film

This unimportant aspect of Hollywood

Roller Coasters haven’t made much impact in the cinematic world. A few make cameos in a few movies, but it doesn’t really affect the plot, or even get named. Why have there been runaway trains (Upcoming movie Unstoppable), buses (Speed), and airplanes (Airport, Airplane!), but why never roller coasters?Well, though technically “transportation”, the biggest problem is that a roller coaster needs major intervention for anything interesting to happen (We all know riding them is interesting, but a POV will not hold an audience’s attention for one and a half hours). Something interesting needs to happen. But a crash won’t do it. A coaster crash would last a matter of seconds, maybe minutes is a filmmaker wants some suspense. So apparently, coasters are out in Hollywood.However, a few have tried. But before I list the ones that put them in somewhat major roles, here are some cameos in notable movies, but not notable appearances:It’s a Mad Mad Mad Mad World for featuring Queen’s Pike Cyclone Racer in the final car chase. We scorn the boardwalk for taking this ride down.

Hairspray (1988) for including the Tilted Acres being set at Dorney and featuring Thunderhawk.

Lost Boys for featuring Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk as, well, the center of town

And Cyclone has been featured many times, in films like Titanic, and The Other Guys (Interestingly, Annie Hall features Coney Island, but rides Thunderbolt rather than Cyclone) , Santa Cruz is used often as in Sudden Impact, the above mentioned Lost Boys, and Dangerous Minds, and the iconic Santa Monica West Coaster at Pacific Park was used in Crazy/Beautiful and Fat Albert.

You can find more in our Special Listings under Ride Appearences

But these are minor roles. Coasters are most interesting when front and center, like on C-net. Sadly, out of the thousands of movies ever made, only a small amount actually put them front and center. So without further ado, let’s discuss them!

*Note: I do not endorse these movies or even say they are somewhat decent. In fact, I actually have only seen Rollercoaster.

Final Destination 3

The Final Destination series is known for the repetitive plot of Person has vision of huge disaster| Person saves a bunch of people| Death kills them in highly gore-y and contrived manners. Adults only, please. But version three has the “huge disaster” be an accident on a huge roller coaster. The restraints don’t lock, and the poor teenager’s riding the suitably named “Devil’s Flight” are badly, badly killed in brutal fashions. Oddly enough, the ride is Corkscrew at Playland Park near Vancouver. It is actually rather small and does not feature the loop in the movie, but CGI made it come to life…it would have been sweet if it was real and not killing us, though.

Beverly Hills Cop III

Originally intended to be an intense action thriller, budget cuts made it… something else. Featuring an investigation into a murderous counterfeit ring that is at a park called WonderWorld (California’s Great America), it was supposed to be 70 million dollars for intended crazyness, but it ended up being about the investigation. It was critically hated, though it made $120,000,000. Coasters have still yet to make a good movie, unless…

The House on Haunted Hill

…nope, still lousy. A remake of a good B-movie, it has a bunch of people get offered a million dollars to stay in an asylum full of ghosts and…well…not die. But at the beginning of the movie, a coaster called “Terror Incognito” is shown which is actually The Incredible Hulk coaster and some reporters ride. It is certainly unrealistic, as it shows two trains one after the other without a break in between and the highly fake looking track breaking with the first train flying off (It’s full of dummies) and the tracks meeting again before the actual train meets. Ah, how movies have no idea how coasters work. And it really doesn’t matter…but the element is neat enough to warrant this passage.

Roller Coaster: No movie has featured a roller coaster some prominently. It is impossible to think the film won’t be about roller coasters. If you wonder why, see the title. It follows a n amusement park ride inspection engineer, who after inspecting a ride, a crazy bomber wanting one million dollars (A lot of money in 1977) blew it up and wrecked it, causing some deaths. He hears about a fire in a haunted house in Boston, and meets with executives to bust the extortionist. He travels to Kings Dominion with a case full of money and a case full of blanks…only to receive a terrifying surprise. The climax around Six Flags Magic Mountain’s Revolution is stunning and the entire film is almost a tribute to roller coasters. In fact, to promote the film, a group of friends rode KD’s Rebel Yell for 103 hours to promote the film. They thought it was a neat idea to start an organization for coaster lovers…which is now known as the American Coaster Enthusiasts and is the largest coaster organization in the world.

It still only has a 50% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, though it’s based on six reviews. And it’s not rated R.

Well, roller coasters in cinema have a long way to go, as good movies entirely about roller coasters have still not yet been made. There is still hope, though as a Roller Coaster Tycoon movie is currently being made. However, movies based on video games are, apparently, really bad so far, so we coaster enthusiasts just have to hope and wait.
