Trivia

The Cosmic Age Lodge used in the movie is now demolished. It was on Harbor Boulevard just south of the Disneyland entrance and north of Katella. Now part of Cars Land sits where the motel stood. Before the Disneyland area was drastically changed and the "Space Race" was in it's heyday, Harbor Boulevard had a lot of "Space Age" themed motels, as well as "Character" themed motels/hotels such as "The Peter Pan Lodge".

The best the 80's had to offer
21 July 2001 | by See all my reviews

What a sweet movie. This movie just about wraps up the "rad" pop culture of the 1980's, and puts it into one film. The skateboarding is incredible, and it features Tony Hawk who developed into the #1 skater in the world. While this movie might not be realistic, it made me laugh all the way through. The best scene by far involves Tony Hawk and a Pizza Hut truck. Enjoy this movie and remember the 80's.
