Sarah's nuclear nightmare - Park Rd. Los Angeles, Ca. 90012
(Elysian Park, Buena Vista Hill)

The playground was built specifically for the movie and then removed after filming had concluded. There is a small kids play area close by but it differs considerably from the one seen in the movie and it's also not as close to the edge of the hill.

Semi jumps into wash - Hayvenhurst Ave. and Plummer St. Los Angeles, Ca. 91343

The semi jump itself takes place on the southern end of the intersection. Roughly .23 miles north of the intersection is the spot where John veers left into the smaller wash and the chase continues.

Cyberdyne - 47131 Bayside Pkwy. Fremont, Ca. 94538

At the time of my visit, it was Mattson Technology. For the film, they added a glass fascade to the top of the building to make it appear taller.
