House on Haunted Hill

Deliberate mistake: When Eddie and "Jennifer" are walking around the house alone, she is trying to tell Eddie that she's really Sara. But by the time she is explaining that, Eddie has disappeared. She doesn't find him until later. But from the moment she finds him (and he is talking to her) he calls her Sara, despite never actually hearing her say that. Also, after they all get back together, a few of the other people start calling her Sara as well, but no one actually heard that either.

Deliberate mistake: In the scene about the Terror Incognita roller-coaster, when the rails break, they have ragged ends at the gap; after the first roller-coaster train derails, the rails move together again to close the gap and allow the second roller-coaster train to pass safely; but as you see the rails move together again, they now have neatly cut ends at the gap, not ragged ends. A deliberate error to mislead the audience, but an error nonetheless. (00:10:52)

Factual error: In the scene where the cast find the guns in the tiny coffins, they mention that it is not possible to tell if they are loaded because the clips are welded. Being semi-automatic pistols, simply pulling back the slide & ejecting the first round would have easily determined whether live or blank rounds had been loaded.

Question: What happened to the carriage on the rollercoaster that flew off the rails?

Answer: Its just an illusion by Price. His rides are meant to confuse you. Like the tower ride looked like the cable broke and was falling to the ground.
