models and Step by Step

2 questions for this newsgroup.

1.
I also have an interest in building a model coaster.  I have found Big Dipper
(I think) by Fallon.  Besides designing/creating one, does anyone know of
other replica kits of existing ones?

2.
Where is that roller coaster in the beginning of the TV show "Step by Step"
with Patrick Duffy, Suzanne Somers, and Sasha Mitchell aired Fridays?  It is
a white steel one, and it is right along a coast.  The stage is in Wisconsin,
but that means nothing.  Thanks.

My mistake.  It's a woodie.  I have been informed it is the Collossus.

Any info about replica kits would be appreciated, still.

It is the Collosus at Six Flags Magic Mountain (Valencia California).

It is a large "racing" wooden coaster, not located on the coast.
The waves are superimposed on top of the parking lot!           :-)

Gosh, doncha just love "special effects"?

Hope this helps,

Huh?  It sure looks to me like a woodie racer, painted white.  (Is my
TV set really that bad?)

And I, too, have often wondered what coaster that is.
