ROLLER COASTER VIDEOS


Available once again after over 25 years and now in DVD format!

"ROLLER COASTER WEEKEND"
Parts 1 and 2

The classic video series "Roller Coaster Weekend" (Parts 1 and 2) were originally released back in 1990 and 1991 as a Super-8 movie film to VHS transfer and featured over 150 defunct and currently operating roller coasters. Since that time many of the rides originally shown in these videos as "currently operating" have since closed and demolished never to be ridden again and are now considered in the "defunct" category.  While we will no longer be able to ride them, they are documented in these videos for all to see and enjoy.

Back in the 1990's, the UltimateRollerCoaster.com website said this about the RCW video series:

"I think these are the two best coaster videos ever made.  They have POV and off-ride footage of many defunct coasters and allows you to take a trip across the country in only a few hours."

Please be aware that many of the roller coasters included in these videos were operational at the time when they were originally produced.  They are now more historical documentaries than they are showing existing rides. Suffice it to say, quite a lot has changed in the world of amusement parks since these two videos were originally released. A complete listing of the roller coasters featured in these two videos can be found below.

After receiving many requests over the years to make these two videos available in a more modern format, we are releasing both of them for a limited time in standard DVD format.  These are old movies with some of the original footage filmed as far back as the 1970's.  Although the overall quality of both videos is good, they are not "digital" productions. (Hi-def digital cameras did not exist at that time.)  Should you view the videos on a HD television (as opposed to an older TV set or computer monitor) you should adjust the picture size accordingly for optimal viewing.
