Backlot Stunt Coaster is a launched roller coaster located at Kings Island in Kings Mills, Ohio, USA. The ride originally opened as "The Italian Job: Stunt Track" and was themed to the climactic chase scene at the end of the 2003 film The Italian Job. It was changed to a more generic theme at the start of the 2008 season due to the park no longer being associated with Paramount and Viacom properties. When it opened in 2005, it featured an on-board audio soundtrack. Near the end of the ride, the train is stopped, and a helicopter starts shooting bullets. (just sound) then a fake explosion is let off near the train.
