Anton Schwarzkopf documentary

Enthusiast coaster & amusement park chatter about whatever. If it's not about coasters & parks, it'll go to the garbage file. Keep it on-topic and flame-retardant, please.

Worth watching, even if you don't speak German, if for nothing else than the awesome 1978 Greezed Lightnin' commercial at the beginning



All hail Lord Anton, amen.

I love how Astroworld used foorage of Great America's Tidal Wave for their GL ad.

I wish someone would add subtitles to it as it looks like a great documentary.
Life is short....have fun!

SF used to do that all the time when they needed to film a commercial before the coaster was finished being built.
Worse was when they sold t-shirts with the wrong picture under the ride's name: I remember seeing a shirt for "Batman: the Escape" (Intamin standup coaster) with a silhouette of a B&M Inverted in the background.

...or the Arkansas Twister shirts in season one that had a line drawing of the Coney Cyclone - and AT is an out-and-back coaster!
