Much of the on-ride footage was filmed on the "Corkscrew" at Playland, part of the Pacific National Exhibition in Vancouver, Canada. The actual ride is much tamer and slower (only contains a double corkscrew inversion) compared to "Devil's Flight", which contains multiple vertical loops and multiple corkscrew sections. In order to achieve such a roller coaster, CGI was applied to the roller coaster set, which contained a hydraulic setup that mimic the actual roller coaster train. See more »
Fireworks mortar tubes must be at least Schedule 40 ABS tube, not the lightweight Schedule 80 PVC tube shown. The lifting charge would immediately explode through such a thin tube.
Fireworks are never launched without maintaining a visual reference to the mortar racks (which incidentally are banned by law to be placed on rolling trailers), allowing the pyrotechnician to immediately cease launching if there was any damage or instability to those racks. See more »
I thought i was in for a disappointment. I was wrong .........
I'm not gonna lie to ya, i wasn't looking forward to final destination 3.Just seeing a roller coaster full of screaming people on the poster made me roll my eyes and assume that this franchise has run out of steam .
So you can imagine my surprise to find that final destination 3 is a entertaining , funny and shocking thriller that proves that horror sequels can be pretty darn good if handled properly .
Directed by james wong with style and a pace that hits the ground running ,the film is very much like a roller coaster in its self - fast,packed full of laughs and most importantly full of frights .
The film is essentially a remake of the first film only with a different cast, gorier deaths and a higher level of self awareness.But this is a rare case in which copying the original isn't a bad thing- it keeps that sense of inventiveness and wit that made the first one great. It may be a clone , but its a very good one !
Final destination 3 is gory ,homourous and clever fun that will make me think twice about my horror sequel prejudice....
