Corrected entry: On the dvd, if you make Wendy beep again at the drive through, you save Frankie's life. But doing this creates a flaw when Ian dies, as Frankie would still be alive. Also there is no way he could have died in the minute space between Wendy's near death and Ian being cut in two.
Corrected entry: The Law of Gravity prevents the train from ever being stuck upside down in a loop; it's physically impossible. Also, coasters do not have brakes on the cars. The only moving parts on a roller coaster are the chain on the lift hill, and the brakes/brake release in the station. Once the cars leave the top of the lift hill, gravity is the only thing affecting the cars until they reach the station again. No electrical/hydraulic stuff on the cars at all.Jazetopher
Corrected entry: In the first film the plane crash was always going to happen, nothing the teenagers did or didn't do was going to alter that. In FD2 the car crash was always going to happen, again, nothing the teenagers did was going to alter this, because again, their actions were not responsible for the crash. But in FD3 an action by someone on the coaster is why it crashed, and by that person not riding the coaster and removing the item responsible for the crash (the camera), the crash should never have happened. I accept that the teenagers escaped death, but that still doesn't change the fact that the crash simply couldn't have happened. It has been established in the movies that Death can improvise with deaths, but it has never been established Death can simply cause the crash regardless of Frankie Cheeks' involvement, because that would negate the point of the flashback.
Corrected entry: When Wendy has the vision of the rollercoaster crash, after Ian and Erin falling, you see a girl fall (who is later revealed to be Julie) but there is no one next to her. Later in the movie, it was we find out that Julie's friend Perry, who dies after Julie, was sitting next to her on the rollercoaster. Right before it was revealed, Wendy asked who was sitting next to her. The picture from the rollercoaster only shows Julie, not Perry. The same with the vision.
Corrected entry: After Lewis dies and Wendy and Kevin go outside, a camera can be seen reflected when Kevin opens the car door after Wendy asks him to drive.
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when Wendy takes a picture of Julie, she is wearing a dark pink shirt. When Wendy looks at the picture from the rollercoaster, Julie is wearing a blue shirt.
Corrected entry: Erin's head striking the nail gun would not trigger a shot. It requires a simultaneous pull of the trigger plus depressing the trigger safety (as Ian did shooting at the pigeons) to fire a nail. Some guns can be converted to "bump fire", but it requires some disassembly, and Ian would not have done that because he had not eliminated all the pigeons.
Corrected entry: When the kids get off the roller coaster and the ride starts, Wendy is dragged outside by the security guards. About 5 seconds after Wendy has been dragged out the roller coaster crashes. So basically, the roller coaster managed to climb up the huge hill and crash in the space of 10 seconds, even though it took at least 30 seconds to climb the hill during Wendy's premonition.
Corrected entry: Wendy says that the "hydraulics will rupture" when she's freaking out. If her vision ended after she was falling from the car then how would she know what the reason for the accident was unless she knew how roller coasters worked which is doubtful for an average high school teenager.
Corrected entry: Kevin's photo shows a shocked expression as a camera flash has gone off close to his face. However, in the scene where Wendy takes this photo, he throws his head back, making this expression after the flash has gone off, therefore after the picture was taken, resulting in a completely different picture.
Corrected entry: On the double disc thrill-ride edition, the all-new Ashlyn and Ashley scene is ridculous. No way would Ashlyn have died from an electric shock like that, it would have taken a lot more electricity, via Ashley, to kill her.
Corrected entry: Directly after Wendy has her premonition of the roller coaster crashing, we see her holding the camera out in front of her and we see the roller coaster guy waving at her to put the camera away. Watch closely and you'll notice that Wendy never actually presses the shutter button - she does in the premonition, but not in 'real' life. Later in the movie, on multiple occasions, we see this shot on the camera, (as Wendy figures out Julie was on the roller coaster) and it doesn't make sense because Wendy never took the photo.
Corrected entry: The sunbed scene is totally unrealistic. There are always emergency stop buttons inside the canopy that automatically cut the power. Secondly the 2 girls would never have got so burned that their skin would blister, in such a short period of time regardless of how much power overload there may have been.pierpp
Corrected entry: How are Wendy's pictures, taken before her and her friends got on the rollercoaster, supposed to say how they died if death's design was for them to all die on the ride? If there were something in the pictures related to their death, aside from anything to do with the rollercoaster ride, then the actual "design" was for them to make it off the ride alive and die a different way later.
Corrected entry: During the tanning scene, the top bulbs of Ashley's tanning bed shatter, scattering the shards all over her and the bottom of the bed. In the next few shots, just before the glass below her breaks, the broken shards have disappeared.
Corrected entry: During the tanning bed/Wendy freak-out sequence, it seems that night has fallen at Wendy's house, but it's still daylight outside the salon (an anomaly which facilitates tanning?).
Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy sees them all die on the roller coaster the character with the camcorder drops it onto the track. The camcorder becomes wrapped by the strap around the track causing part of the roller coaster to derail. After the premonition Wendy panics and several people, including the camcorder guy get off, therefore the camcorder will never wrap itself round the track causing the roller coaster to derail - end film.
