If anyone cares to share their entry, or just what names you think are cool for a twisted coaster like the Beech Bend ride, let us know!
My entry is the same as my screen name.

Yea I got one: "Suck on this, Thunder Run"

I entered a name too! My entry was River Bender. My logic for this name is because the park is in very close proximity to Barren River and the fact that the coaster itself is so "bent". :) I love entering contests like this. I have a knack for winning weird contests...especially ones naming things.

Sky Shadow. It's kind of a rebirth, a shadow if you will, of the Aeroplane Coaster (the first drop, anyway.) And what do airplanes fly in?
Yeah, I know I'm not gonna win with that. But it's fun to enter.

Mad Dog is a very cool name. They could sell dog tags at the exit shop and the station could be the dog house.
Way 2 Fast would be cool.

I went with Frenzy
The term in the dictionary says it all:
A state of violent mental agitation or wild excitement. Temporary madness or delirium. A mania; a craze.

I know some may complain that it's too "generic" or "overused" but a coaster with such classic lines needs a classic name. I think "Kentucky Cyclone" or "Kentucky Tornado" are cool names inspired by the classics.

How about the Kentucky Wildcat. Pretty soon GCI will have a pack of Wildcats.
How about M:TR?

At 40 M:TR is near classic-status but there will always only be one! LOL!
I like Kentucky Wildcat, too, Dan ;)

Ky Wildcat is a pretty good name, in fact I think it's a REAL good name but the only thing I think that could hurt that name's chance at being selected is the parks proximity to WKU (which just so happens to NOT be a wildcat school). I dunno.. maybe I've been playing out in left field too long in the sun! LOL

Kentucky Fried Clicking was mine.
Okay. I tease.

I think Phoenix is a good name. It rode from the ashes to put Beech Bend on the map. Just imagine what they could do if they had designed and built Voyager. :)

I was thinking Beech Bender due to the twisted layout.
KY Wildcat, OMG! Even in Cincy they team gear outnumbers the Bearcats. It's a good name for it though.

I tried to think of something that had to do with Kentucky and/or horse racing.....

Haa! I had thought of that exact same name!
Along with Kentucky Twister, Blue Grass Bender, Beech Bend Cyclone...

Beech Nut. Sponsorship sells itself to a prime demographic!

Well *that* explains a lot! ;)

You say that like it's a good thing ;)

What park is the new coaster going to be at?
