TRIVIA

Look for an early appearance by the new wave band Sparks during the rollercoaster’s opening concert.

During its release in 1977, ROLLERCOASTER was presented in SENSURROUND which was a low frequency bass sound that caused theater seats to rumble during the scenes featuring the exciting rides. Other movies that featured this gimmick were EARTHQUAKE (1974), MIDWAY (1977) and the theatrical version of BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (1978).
