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.
Director Greg Mottola originally planned to shoot the movie in the real Adventureland park, but later decided against it since the park had been so drastically remodeled since he had worked there.
Can you stop saying "intercourse"?
President Ronald Reagan is seen on television delivering a speech. This particular speech was given on August 12, 1987, but in the film it occurs before July 4th.
A commercial for the Adventureland amusement park can be seen during the end credits.
