Storyline

In a desperate hour, five teenagers choose a bankrupt amusement park to let loose and pursue a fantasy. Darrin, his girlfriend Chloe, his best friend Stick, the group clown Sanj and Darrin's tag-along kid brother Justin "borrow" their group home counselor's car for a day of escape at Wonder World. Fueled by booze, drugs and unspoken tensions between them, the friends revel aimlessly through the silent rides in search of Ben, a notorious and apparently teen-friendly security guard. Ben allows them to stay, but in return exacts the most private of fees. Soon the rides are alive, but the fantasy holds little solace for those facing demons. Darrin hatches an alternative plan, and by trapping Ben in the dizzying Zipper, they succeed in commandeering the rides. The blaring music, bright lights and bucketing machines of the midway are a futile escape, for in its midst a darker purpose lurks; after night has fallen, Darrin and Chloe intend to end their carnival in a tableau of sacrifice by ...

Darrin: I don't know. I never really got into it. I mean it's like you climb all the way up here and it's like you know it's going to be bad. Then you get to the top. After that you're just trying to hold on.

I don't understand why I didn't review!~!
17 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

The trailer alone gets you involved to where you can't not want to see it. The acting was amazing and the writing was brilliant. You can have terrible actors and bad writing or vice versa and this had neither even the location they choose was perfect and through out the movie your so engrossed with the whole thing and the park itself is so eerie it adds to the effect. It's not a movie for the faint of heart. It deals with real issues and emotions which are differently portrayed. I remember I wanting to see this because Kett Turton was in it and I am familiar with Brendan Fletcher as well. I would see this at blockbuster from time and to time and never knew that one day I would be watching it. I watched it for the actors but was blown away by the whole thing. The movie really takes you in and you stay put and follow them through with the emotions and literally the Roller-coaster that their on till the very end. Recommended for any one who wants to see something different and with more thought!~!
