Important: This article has been updated to change the word "coaster" to "ride". My apologies to all.
The city I'm in today is no dirty little secret in pop-culture. It's been referenced in a comic book mini-series, in musicals, and in pop music, including a Top 20 hit from the 1980s that was put out by a best-selling artist who seems to be living a fantasy - this person has sold more than 100 million records. I came to this city once last year with my college buddies and let's just say, it was one wild ride.
Speaking of references, this town was also the filming location of a music video that I've referenced in the clue above. Specifically, an amusement park in the city was used in the video. The name of my favorite ride there is also the name of a Beatles song.
What town am I in, and what amusement park and ride am I speaking of?
