For the big arrival of the big bus, a bus station in downtown Los Angeles had to have its roof raised, so the gigantic coach could enter the facility. See more »
When the bus is being pulled out of the garage, the top of the front section just fits under the top of the door opening, but the back section of the bus includes an observation dome that is taller then the front of the bus. It could've never been pulled out of the garage. See more »

A disaster-movie spoof before Airplane! and just as funny!
This film is a disaster movie spoof that pre-dates Airplane! It's about a giant nuclear-powered bus complete with a bowling alley and pool. Very very funny, okay, not as funny as Airplane!, but better than Airplane 2. The scene in the milk bar where two bus drivers fight with broken milk cartons is great, lots of goofy characters, great cast. Ruth Gordon! Stockard Channing! Richard Mulligan! Lots of 70's fun!
