At the weighing machine Calder weighs 210lb with his briefcase, and 155lb without in. A case weighing 55lb (around 25kg) would be difficult to carry for any distance.

Factual errors 

The Young Man places the remote bomb on the first roller coaster underneath the main guide rail of the track, but allows the ride to run several times before detonating it. In reality, the up-stop wheels or side wheels of the next train to pass through the course would have knocked the bomb out of place or destroyed it.

Revealing mistakes 

During the catastrophic accident in the beginning of the movie, most of the people in the roller coaster cars are obviously dummies.

The last portion of the movie at Magic Mountain is depicted as taking place on July 4th but in fact it's easy to tell the filming was done during the winter months. The trees in the park are all dormant.
