Factual error: There is absolutely no way a Trans Am can tow the weight of a 9,000 lb elephant, plus the weight of a newborn elephant and 2 trailers. Such weight with a car like that would, at the very least, break an axle and destroy a transmission.
Continuity mistake: When Sheriff Justice has caused the roller coaster frame to collapse his car's left front hubcap is gone, but soon reappears. Then during the "game of chicken" between the semi-trailers and police cars, his car's left back hubcap is gone, but reappears just before Justice thinks about retiring.
[Justice tries to shoot the Bandit with Junior's gun only to find it's not loaded.]
Justice: Junior! Why didn't you have your gun loaded?
Junior: Well, when I put bullets in it, daddy, it gets too heavy.
Trivia: In the huge scene with the big rigs and all, the police car crashes off of the car trailer truck. But this stunt was really a world record for the longest car stunt that was powered by the car's own engine. The distance was well over 100 feet.
