An unnamed saboteur, simply called "Young Man" in the credits (Bottoms), sneaks into Ocean View Amusement Park and places a small radio-controlled bomb on the tracks of the Rocket, the park's wooden roller coaster. The bomb detonates and a coaster train derails, killing and injuring the riders. Safety inspector Harry Calder (Segal), who initially cleared the ride, is called to the park to investigate. It is soon discovered that the attack is just the one of many at other parks, and it's up to Calder to stop the bomber.

* {{Bowdlerise}}: The ending was changed from the Young Man [[spoiler:getting his foot stuck on the tracks and sliced by the Revolution's train]] to [[spoiler:him getting hit and killed by the train]], out of fear that the former would be too extreme for the PG rating and thus receive an R rating (this being before the introduction of PG-13).
