Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • The real Adventureland park is located in Farmingdale, New York on Long Island.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): In the scene near the end where James, Joel and Frigo are sitting on the hill drinking, a stack of empty cans with the old-style pull tabs is seen next to James. Pull tab cans had been discontinued in the U.S. by 1987.
  • The story Joel tells James about newspapers getting Herman Melville's name wrong (they supposedly referred to him as Henry) in his obituary is only a myth. There was no such error.
  • Movie Goof (revealing mistake): When Bobby is calling the race at the horse game, all of the horses are still at the start and none of them are moving.
