For those unfamiliar with the show, it depicts a world where the power - all power - suddenly cut off. Most folks wouldn't have much use for a theme park without power, so when the production needed an abandoned, decrepit theme park they knew where to go:
Eagle eyed viewers should be able to make out the distinctive red track of Maximum RPM, as well as the inside of the Great Eats diner and the beach show seating area. How much of the park we'll actually see remains to be...well, it remains to be seen. But at least the park has managed to serve some purpose, even if it is to look abandoned.
One thing is for sure, however. "Revolution" is NBC's most popular scripted program right now. More people will see the park tomorrow night than ever saw it when it was open. Pity they can't reopen it to take advantage of its - ah, nevermind, they'd just screw it up again.
As a side note, my cousin moved to southeast North Carolina by the coast and she said two shows film there- Revenge (which is supposed to be Long Island) and Boardwalk Empire (which is supposed to be Atlantic City). Myrtle Beach is also quite close. I guess that area is hot for locational shooting.
Now open, or date announced:
Still waiting on these:
