My brother and I were extras in this movie when it was filmed in 1984. I have a cousin, Andrea Kenyon, who is a casting director. She's on IMDb if you look her up. She got us in when we were visiting that summer.

For the person who was wondering, the amusement park is La Ronde in Montreal. It is still going strong today. It is on Ile St. Helene, a small island between the island of Montreal and the mainland. The island was originally the site of Expo '67 which Montreal hosted.

The movie was originally going to be called 'Fun Park'. I still have yet to see it! Maybe that's for the better?! If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know.
