Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey | 1991

Bill And Ted's Bogus Journey location: Vasquez Rocks, southern California

Originally intended to be Bill and Ted Go to Hell, this time ‘San Dimas’ really is in California – but all the fun seems to have been left behind in Arizona.

The locale becomes a real Los Angeles suburb, Northridge in the San Fernando Valley.

The spectacular landscape where B&T give Death (William Sadler) a melvin is Vasquez Rocks Natural Area Park, 10700 West Escondido Canyon Road, near Agua Dulce Springs, southern California. The photogenic rock formations can also be seen in plenty of films, including The Flintstones and the 2009 reboot of Star Trek.

The ‘Bill and Ted University’ campus is the Japanese Garden, 6100 Woodley Avenue, in Van Nuys, north of LA in the San Fernando Valley. Part of the Tillman Water Reclamation Plant, it’s another screen favourite, appearing in Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery, Rising Sun and Memoirs Of A Geisha.

‘San Dimas Civic Auditorium’, where the good Bill and Ted finally see off the evil Bill and Ted at the Battle of the Bands, is Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, 1855 Main Street in Santa Monica.
