Where are they now? Walley World!

I decided to mix things up a bit this time with our "Where are they now" section and include locations!
This week I am featuring Walley World!

The Actual Walley World is represented by both Santa Anita Park and Six Flags Magic Mountain. Santa Anita's large parking lot and blue-tinged fascia serve as the introduction scenes, while Magic Mountain serves all internal-park scenes. The two roller coasters seen in the film (and still operating today) are Revolution, which can be recognized by the vertical loop and Colossus, the double track wooden roller coaster.

"What is that? What is that?  Walley World, Next three exits!

Thanks to Braden for the pictures!


  1. How cool! Would be interesting to know what became of those giant Wally World props.

  2. They are probably filling up Chevy’s garage. He said in the European Vacation commentary that he kept the Pig in a Poke costume and wears it on Halloween!

    The signs over the bridge were mat painting according to Harold Ramis on the Vacation commentary.

    Maybe Chevy will auction off some of his props someday in his Green Charity he does each year!
