Revealing mistake: In the day following the Rider's first ride, Cage shows up at the street that has been burned down the center. A person very close to the beginning of that scene walks on the broken up rocks and it moves as if it were a pad or a sponge. It wasn't a rock moving because the street moves with the rock. It happens a couple of times during that scene.
Revealing mistake: After the Ghost Rider escapes from jail, he is shown pulling his chain whip off of his bike and wrapping it around his torso. As he lifts his leg to mount the bike, the section of chain near his right hip can be seen to pass through his jacket, revealing that it is a CGI chain, not a real one.
Trivia: When Johnny Blaze is on the roof as the Ghost Rider, he throws the chain at the helicopter, and pulls it towards him in a straight line. When he does this, he says "Come here...you're pissing me off." This is a reference to the character Scorpion from the Mortal Kombat game. Scorpion throws a harpoon the same way in the game, and says "get over here" when he does so. Also, Scorpion's finishing move in the game shows him removing his mask to reveal a flaming skull head, just like Ghost Rider.
Trivia: Peter Fonda in both "Ghost Rider" and "Wild Hogs" makes reference, albeit subtly, to his character in "Easy Rider." Nicholas Cage parodies his dream sequence in "Raising Arizona" where his evil side is riding through the desert on a motorcycle, and shoots a lizard off a rock by the side of the road.
