For a wooden roller coaster that was as old as this one, the explosive charges could not take down the last curve at the end of the track, the one that was supposed to be the cause of rupturing the gas line that caused the explosion. The large crowd watching cheered. A bulldozer finally finished the job. See more »
One of the most unbelievably ridiculous 70s films that may or may not be a serious thriller...
The Death of Oceanview Park fits the part for a TV Movie trying to be mildly scary. Actually it more accurately fits the 1970s idea of a silly TV trying to be mildly scary. The movie never really ties itself together and gives the impression that it was written and/or pieced together on a rainy Sunday afternoon. It has several paranormal phenomena that serve as the scary throw-ins, but they never resolve themselves or show how they actually fit in to the movie's events. The acting appears serious, almost too serious, but this only makes the movie that much sillier. Although this movie is bad, it's a great movie for a few laughs and a look into 1970s "made for TV" filmography. Beware of the roving sand bump!
