Is PCW Paramounts Canada's Wonderland or Paramounts Carowinds?

Yeah Baby!!!

PCW would be Paramount's Canada's Wonderland and PC is Paramount's Carowinds.

some more obscure ones:
TCFKAB: Mantis, or The Coaser Formerly Known As Banshee
TPFKAGL = SFO, or The Park Formerly Known As Geagua Lake.
TCFKAT2 = Batman at KK, or The Coaster Formerly Known As T2.

the only abbreviation I'm not to sure about is SLC. I assume Vekoma SLCs are the Vekoma Inverted coaster Nor'Easter and it's clones like TCFKAT2. but what's it stand for?

SLC is a Suspended Looping Coaster

MA would be Michigans Adventure. (Live 20min away) ST would be Shivering Timbers. :)

SFGAdv = Great Adventure (NJ)
SFGAm = Great America (IL)
SFGA = confusion, we need to retire this 1 =]

IMO = In my Opinion
IMHO = In my Humble Opinion

I read somewhere that CP changed the name Banshee to Mantis because they realized that a banshee is a ghost that appears when someone is about to die. Good thing they changed it's name.:)
I like the name Mantis anyway.

Raptor Munkey I was to KK (Kentucky Kingdom) this past week and T2 is still T2 not Batman. Although the Batman logo is right next to the ride it is just telling you the Batman show is around the cornet. Go to the enterance to T2 and to will see the BIG T2 logo.
