On Location

The Dead Zone was filmed at locations in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.

The gazebo used in the movie was built for the movie and still stands near the Niagara river where it is popular for tourist and wedding photos. [Thanks to Daffles]

The tunnel that was used is called 'The Screaming Tunnels'. It is an old tunnel that runs under a railroad track. The legend is if you light a match or candle, when a train is going over top, the spirit of a girl who was killed by a train will blow out the flame. [Thanks to Chris]

The roller coaster was 'The Flyer' at the CNE Toronto, Ontario. (The Flyer was taking down in 1992) [Thanks to Chad Irish]

The school in the beginning of the Dead Zone is Summitview Public School located in Stouffville, Ontario Canada. I am in fact the girl that you see in the class room seated in the first desk of the middle row.I was wearing a white blouse and brown skirt. The kids used were all of my Grade 6 class. We were each paid 60 dollars for being extras and we got to have lunch with Christopher Walken and Brooke Adams at the church located across the street from the school. In fact, each of us students also received a black and white photo of our class with the actors in front of the school. I am now 40 and still have that photo and the walkman I purchased with the 60 dollars. [Thanks to Andrea]

Can you help? Do you know any of the Niagara-on-the-Lake, ONTARIO, Canada filming locations used for The Dead Zone? [Please send them in]
