- This video takes place at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, California and was recorded in summer 1989.
- One of the roller coasters that was used in this video, Colossus, was converted by Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC) into Twisted Colossus in 2015. Twisted Colossus wasn't safe from music fever, either: the lead singer of Walk the Moon rode it and lead the passengers in song up the lift hill.
- Revolution was refurbished into The New Revolution in 2016 with a VR experience. Two years later, the VR option was removed.
- Wile E. Coyote Coaster is now known as Magic Flyer.
- The restaurant where the kids ate at, Candy Kitchen, is now known as Cartoon Candy Kitchen.
- Viper, Six Flags Magic Mountain's 1990 addition, was opened on April 7, around a month after this video was released. However, it wasn't built when this video was filming.
- Z-Force was demolished to make way for Batman: The Ride, which opened on March 26, 1994, a day before and four years after this video was released. Batman was featured in Here Comes a Roller Coaster and Other Fun-filled Rides... which was also filmed at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
- Ninja is still accepting passengers to this day, although it's not as fast (or scary) as some of the newer coasters at the park.
- Josh would later return to Six Flags Magic Mountain as the voice of The Flash and Green Lantern in the park's 2017 addition, Justice League: Battle for Metropolis. In the ride, Green Lantern utters the line, "Loopty loop coming up!" This could be a reference to "Here We Go Loopty Loo."
- It is unknown what happened to some of the smaller rides shown in this video, like the apple ride. However, Tweety's Escape can be seen for a brief moment in "Let's Twist Again", and that ride is still running to this day.
- This is the first 90's Kidsongs video.
- First Kidsongs music video in which "Starring The Kidsongs Kids" is written in cursive in the opening credits.
- This is the first episode to feature the 1990-1995 Kidsongs logo in the blue and white background.
- Songs from this video can be seen in The Kidsongs Television Show.
- Ann & Christina Gibbons, who previously appeared as sailor dancers in Kidsongs: What I Want to Be!, are credited in this video as Annie Gibbons and Christine Gibbons (their only appearances as leading Kidsongs kids).
- This is the only video to feature all the Potter kids (Tarrish, Trek, Triskin, and Tuhk) as Kidsongs kids. This is also the only music video to feature Triskin Potter as a leading Kidsongs kid. She was one of the hosts of season 1 of The Kidsongs Television Show.
- This is the only video where Kristy Lynn Espinoza appears by herself; the other videos that she appeared in also featured her older sister, Tina Marie.
- This is the only video where Nicholas Matus appears by himself; the previous video that he appeared in also featured his sister, Chloe.
- This is the only video where Tyler Andreassen appears by himself; he would appear in Kidsongs: Very Silly Songs and in Kidsongs: Play Along Songs in which both of them would feature his younger sister, Rebecca.
- Choreographer Andre Tayir lays the worker of the dolphin and diving show in the song, "Splish Splash" while Mary McLoughlin (credited as special thanks to), Nancy McLoughlin's sister-in-law, plays the tour guide in the song, "Let's Twist Again."
- Like with Kidsongs: A Day at Old MacDonald's Farm, the end credits of this video uses the instrumental version of the song, "Skip To My Lou."
- In "A Pirate's Life", Tyler Andreassen, David Chan, Katinka Chun, Kristy Lynn Espinoza, Kenny Ford, Jr., Sean Gowers, Myisha Jackson, Andres McKenzie, Ryan Olson, Catherine Przybylska, Tarrish Potter, and Richard Stuart appear.
- This is the third Kidsongs video to have a "The End" card after Kidsongs: A Day with the Animals and Kidsongs: A Day at Camp. However, this card is shown before the credits in this video.
- The instrumental in the beginning bares noticeable similarities to Belinda Carlisle's "Heaven is a Place on Earth."
