James Goldstone directs with great effectiveness all the action scenes, allowing us viewers to travel in his dangerous rollercoasters. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- A silly disaster-genre film that's weak and not worth the effort.

...Effective pop entertainment....Suspense for the foolish fun of it...

The trouble with the movie is that there is no variety to it and little suspense after that first disastrous ride. There's quite a bit of sound and fury, signifying not, much. Full Review

Rollercoaster, slambang title notwithstanding, is a singularly tepid piece of work, so dull not even Sensurround can keep you fully awake. Full Review

While it's not Citizen Kane, it is two hours of seat-gripping, ear-splilting, suspenseful entertainment. Full Review

Product Description:

A determined terrorist starts turning America's amusement parks into slaugherhouses by sabotaging rollercoasters. The tension mounts as an affable safety inspector tries to stop the sabateur. Originally released in "Sensurround" to simulate that roller-coaster feeling.

Plot Synopsis:

Originally augmented with the Sensurround technique to simulate the thrills of its title, "Rollercoaster" spins a tale of one man holding thousands of lives at stake.
A quiet man with a deep understanding of explosives, rollercoasters and electronics -- and possibly a traumatic history in the Vietnam War -- targets the patrons of an amusement park for his million-dollar extortion scheme.
He informs federal agents and the owners of the park that he has planted a bomb and he demands $1,000,000. When they call his bluff, he detonates a device on a popular rollercoaster that sends cars and riders hurtling off the tracks.
The authorities then call on the one man who can outsmart the bomber... and prevent any other losses.
