During the gymnastics scene, before Candice's death, there's a girl doing a routine on the uneven bars. There's a thick blue pad that she dismounts onto and an orange mat next to it. A few minutes later when Candice is doing her uneven bar routine the blue pad and orange mat are gone.

During Sam's premonition the bus driver can be seen instantly going from standing up to sitting down between shots several times while everyone is evacuating the bus. Eventually, just after Candice's death, the driver is sat back down in his seat again, but in the very next scene the bus is seen to be completely deserted apart from Isaac.

In the Final Destination 5: Circle of Death special feature it is said that some of the actors from the first _Final Destination (2000)_ were brought back to film the airplane scene but this is incorrect. Their footage was actually green screened into the film.

Errors in geography 

The bridge and scenery is not that of any in New York, but the Lion's Gate Bridge in Vancouver.

Factual errors 

In the bridge sequence, the bus free falls with a passenger inside, who was initially in the back. The movie shows the man falling towards the front windshield during free fall, but in reality, the person would feel weightless, and float inside the bus, since both the person and bus were in free fall at the same time.
The LASIK machine would be unable to produce a beam powerful enough to cause the amount of burning shown due to its power limitations.

The LASIK machine would never do what's shown in the film. In fact, once the eyes look away from the green tracking laser, the machine should automatically shut off. The patient is instructed to always stare at the green laser while the red one does the work. Once eyes are diverted, it's designed to shut off.

Revealing mistakes 

Olivia's eye is burned by the laser during her death scene, but once her eye falls out a close-up of it reveals it looking undamaged.

The screw on the balance beam would not have gone unnoticed by any of the gymnasts or the coach. Additionally, no coach or team member would ever permit an electrical cord, or a cord of any kind, across the mats.

A red Chrysler LeBaron can be seen on the bridge before it collapses. That vehicle does not have a rear view mirror.

In the foresight scene on the bridge, the bus obviously falls into the water before the whole bridge collapses, but in the reality the bus can be scene falling with the entire bridge in the distance.

Spoilers 

The goof items below may give away important plot points.

Anachronisms 

In the scene immediately after Dennis' death, a white Ford Mustang is seen which is clearly the current body style, therefore making it a 2005 or later model. This movie takes place in 2000.

Factual errors 

Although heavy and high up the Buddha that fell on Isaac's head may have had enough force to crush his skull but not enough to completely flatten his head and it would not shear and sever the arteries and skin of his neck.

Revealing mistakes 

In the kitchen when Peter shoots the large cylinder mounted on the wall near the gas stoves, the cylinder should have contained a fire suppressant chemical which would have made it hard to breath. Yet the entire time the cylinder is spewing its contents into the kitchen, not one of the people present even so much as coughs.
