According to Robert Rodriguez, the theme park at the beginning of the film was originally going to be Disneyland, but Six Flags Over Texas in Arlington was used instead. See more »
When the President's daughter is on top of "The Juggler", Carmen is at the control panel, and Gerti asks her what she is doing. She answers "I'm trying to stop the ride". However, Carmen went to the panel before the secret service officer started the ride again. However, trying to stop the ride isn't necessarily the reason Carmen went to the panel in the first place.

The ending credits scroll while Carmen and Juni are somehow set to perform before a crowd of teenagers. Carmen is nervous but their Uncle 'Machete' gives them gadgets so they can perform well in front of the crowd. Then the bloopers and goofing around sequences come in, followed by a sequence where the amusement park owner (Bill Paxton) tries to talk Romero (Steve Buscemi) into establishing a theme park on the island. Finally, the Treehouse is shown getting ready for visitors. See more »
A worthy sequel - great fun for adults and kids alike
After reading some of these user reviews (especially the one about the Latino vs. White.... you have to be kidding me), I felt compelled to write one of my own. Spy Kids 2 had everything I expected - a whole new adventure with characters from first that is fun, exciting, humorous, and still manages to teach about doing the right thing. I also appreciated the references to the original ^_^ , and the special effects were even better than the first.
The hardest people to please in this case would be my 2 daughters (4 & 7) who own the first Spy Kids on DVD and have seen it so many times they can act out the scenes down to the facial expressions and body motions. When they saw Spy Kids 2 this past weekend they were transfixed and left the theater excited about seeing Carmen and Juni in their latest adventure.
A great movie for adults and kids... I cannot recommend this sequel highly enough!
