Backlot Stunt Coaster is a launched roller coaster located at three Cedar Fair amusement parks. The Italian Job: Stunt Track was announced by Kings Island and Canada’s Wonderland on August 12, 2004. At the end of the 2007 season, all three Italian Job coasters were renamed to Backlot Stunt Coaster for the start of the 2008 season. The name change was part of a wider effort by Cedar Fair to remove Paramount themes from the chain of parks the company acquired in 2006 from Paramount Parks. Backlot Stunt Coaster has three trains, each with three cars. Each car can sit four people in two rows of two.
Paramount worked closely with BMW to design the cars. Before the 2010 season, the trains were simplified and removed of any resemblance to the MINI Cooper as Cedar Fair no longer holds the license to use MINI Coopers on Backlot Stunt Coaster. They have also changed the arrangement of the car colors on the trains: One train is all blue, the second is all red and the third is all white. All three had similar themes revolving around the climatic chase scene at the end of the 2003 film, The Italian Job. Special effects were incorporated throughout the ride such as a helicopter that attacks riders with a simulated machine gun sound, pyrotechnics and water effects.
