The Fugitive[edit]

I think the last episode in 1967 of The Fugitive (TV series) was also filmed here. Robertkeller 16:45, 17 January 2007 (UTC)

Working on article[edit]

I am gathering some research material and information about The Pike, and just wanted to mention that I will be reorganizing, cleaning up, adding, in the next few weeks. Any suggestions? Objections? Thanks. --Tinned Elk 17:59, 22 August 2007 (UTC)

Another movie filmed there[edit]

I understand Wikipedia doesn't allow original research, but my mother-in-law got Jeff Chandler's autograph at the Pike circa 1957 while he was filming the movie "Jeanne Eagels". He was headed for the double ferris wheel dressed in blue jeans and a lumberman's jacket. --Robertkeller (talk) 05:34, 27 December 2007 (UTC)

Only Two-Track Roller Coaster?[edit]

"When demolished in September 1968, the Cyclone Racer was the only two track roller coaster in the United States."

I'm not entirely sure that this statement is accurate. Disneyland's Matterhorn Bobsleds has been operating since 1959 and has two tracks. Does the statement imply that it was the only wooden two-track roller coaster in the United States? --Lyght (talk) 04:22, 2 January 2008 (UTC)

Matterhorn Bobsleds was the first tubular steel coaster. The line has been changed to "the last remaining seaside dual-track roller coaster of its kind in the United States" or perhaps "the last remaining wooden seaside dual-track racer of it's kind in the United States" would be a better descriptionDisneywizard (talk) 00:17, 28 July 2012 (UTC)
