National Lampoon's Vacation

The Griswolds finally make it to Walley World, only to find it closed for cleaning and repair. This causes Clark to go temporarily insane. After purchasing a BB gun, Clark holds up the security guard and forces him to allow his family to go on the rides. Eventually a SWAT team turns up and the family are arrested but Clark speaks to Roy Walley himself, reminding him of his own hellish vacation roadtrips. Walley decides to drop the charges, and allows the family (and SWAT team) to remain in the park as his guests.

The end credits show various snapshots from the vacation. The final shot shows that, unsurprisingly, the Griswolds decided to fly home.

Hazax of Rodmore

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Christie Brinkley takes off her clothes and invites Chevy into the pool, he takes off his pants and we are supposed to assume he's naked. When he dives in you can see he's wearing flesh coloured underwear.

Suggested correction: No they show he is never naked, absurd post.

Question: I've always found it odd that although Wallyworld is closed, the car park is still open and accessible. Is this normal for closed US parks, or could it be considered a goof?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: The parking lot is huge. There's really not any way to close the lot itself, but even if there were gates, Clark would probably have been oblivious to them by then.
