Edwina Pearl High School - 7501 E. Virginia Ave. Scottsdale, Az. 85257
(Coronado High School)

In 2005, the entire high school was torn down and rebuilt, with the exception of two of it's buildings. One of those buildings was the one with the wavy roof seen in the background of the screenshot. The roof style was identical to the one seen on the building in the foreground of the screenshot. These exterior shots were filmed on the west side of the campus. The mural seen on the side of the building is still on campus and displayed in front of the Performing Arts building. The high school can also be seen in the movies Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Not Quite Human.

Prom - 1500 N. McClintock Dr. Tempe, Az. 85288
(formerly Big Surf)

Big Surf opened in 1969. It had the first wave pool in the United States, designed by Phil Dexter. In 1972, Pink Floyd performed here as part of their Dark Side of the Moon Tour. In 1979, waterslides were added to the park. At a ceremony on August 17th, 2013 Waikiki Beach wave pool was designated as an ASME Historic Mechanical Engineering Landmark. It closed for the season in 2019, but did not reopen for the 2020 season due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In 2022, it was demolished. At the time of my visit it was just a dirt lot.
