Coasters in movies...

I was flipping thru channels on Sunday and happened to stop on a movie called "Little Big League". Certainly no cinematic masterpiece, but it did have the Twins baseball team going to a theme park. My assumption is that the park was supposed to be ValleyFair!, but I figure like most movies it was probably shot somewhere near L.A. Since there was a loop-screw coaster, I thought maybe it was Knott's (didn't they have one of the first of this kind, if not THE first). If anyone KNOWS where this was filmed, please post. THANKS!

I'm 100% positive that it was filmed at Valleyfair. Not only do you get to see Corkscrew and the Wave, you can actually see a few other rides in the backround. I read somewhere that they filmed that there when they were starting to build Wild Thing, and there was alot of construction crews and that kind of stuff. But anyway, it is Valleyfair.

Thank you for verifying! What is the name of the ride that sprays the bridge with water? Does it still exist? It is Aug 2020 rn.
