- The backdrop is the Saltair Amusement Park outside Salt Lake City.
The Saltair that appears in the film actually burned down in the early '70s. In the early '80s another version of Saltair was rebuilt, although it was a much smaller design. Shortly after it was built, the Great Salt Lake rose and flooded it out. In 1993, the building was remodeled and reopened, now it's mainly used as a small venue for musical acts.
Director Herk Harvey and writer John Clifford both waived their earnings in order to get the film made under the initially miniscule $17,000 budget.
Filmed in three weeks.
The damage to the bridge in the opening scene of the film cost Herk Harvey $17.
