In the summer of 1987, a college graduate takes a 'nowhere' job at his local amusement park, only to find it's the perfect course to get him prepared for the real world.
Adventureland was filmed in Pittsburgh, PA. The amusement park in the movie is known as Kennywood Park. The rides shown in the movie are actual rides, although the names of the games have been changed.
Brennan, you been toking up?
James Brennan: What?
Bobby: You been drinking drugs?
James Brennan: No.
Paulette: Your eyes are red. Have you been crying?
James Brennan: Yea, maybe like a little bit.
(at around 77 mins) When James and Frigo are driving to Connell's mother's house, you can see brand new Ford trucks and cars in a car lot.
A commercial for the Adventureland amusement park can be seen during the end credits.
