    Notes (8)

    • Paramount's Kings Island Amusement Park really does exist in real life.

    • This is the last time we see the Brady family leave the Paramount lot. Unlike most shows, the Brady's actually went on location.

    • In 2005, when the park (then known as Paramount's King's Island) put together a promotional video for their new ride, they spoofed this episode, with the park's two Public Relations officers playing the roles of the entire Brady Family, and Mike's plans being the for the new attraction.

    • Also mentioned on "Pop-Up Brady" was that the overdub dialogue had to be re-recorded because of fan background noise. Not explained, though was the strange "click-click" sound you heard all throughout this episode!

    • This episode was featured on the VH1 Series "Pop Up Brady."

    Trivia (15)

    • One of the characters that Greg was asking "Where's Marge?" is Lloyd Schwartz. He is Sherwood Schwartz's son and a director on the show.

    • The Racer, the "big" roller coaster that the Bradys ride at the end of this episode, still stands today, exactly as it did when the park opened 35 years ago. The paint and car colors are even the same (white wooden coaster, with red and blue cars that "race" each other). The only difference is that the cars closest to the concourse race backward--it's not for the weak-stomached. Tame by today's standards, the Racer was once considered a "major" coaster. Being 35 years old, and wooden, the ride is not a very smooth one, either. Much bigger and newer coasters on metal tracks can be found at Kings Island, but the Racer retains its Coney Island-style charm and remains a "fan favorite" at the park.

    • When the family takes one last trip on "The Racer" roller coaster, the footage shown either is from both the left and right tracks, or the footage is flopped for part of the scene.

    • When Mike finally delivers the plans to the park administrators, it is raining. One can see a puddle by Jan's feet, and the raindrops hitting the water. Throughout the episode, the sky is clear and nearly cloudless.

    • In this episode, it is implied that the Board of Directors of the park is based in New York City. In reality, the parent company that operated Kings Island at that time was based in Cincinnati.

    • The Hair Bear Bunch The animal suit that Greg dons is Hair Bear from the early '70s Hanna-Barbera cartoon "The Hair Bear Bunch."

    • The William Tell Overture/Lone Ranger Theme was cleverly played during the race to get the cannister to Mike.
