It took 3 attempts over 3 days to finally bring down the section of the roller coaster seen in the climax of the movie. With the third attempt, a large earth mover was brought in and attached to the coaster with chains. As explosions were set off, the earth mover slowly pulled the coaster section down. This footage was edited with the earlier, unsuccessful explosions, giving the impression that the coaster was blown up. 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!
