A stupid name I've heard is "Roller Coaster." What a non-original name. The best is Dueling Dragons!!!

All of the overused names are good like Mind Eraser and Serial Thriller. But now they are just dumb. Smae thing with Batman:The Ride, Superman:The Ride. It won't keep me from riding though!!!!!

The best coaster name goes to the Phoenix. It's name says it all. Like the bird phoenix it rose from it's ashes (Playland, San Antonio, TX) and is living its new life at Knoebels. It's the perfect name.
Worst names goes to most of the coasters at the Six Flags parks. most are all clones with the same names. Can't they at least come up with a new name. I'm sure they must have a little more tallent than they show for names. Or do they?

Parks hit for 2000!

I like the name Apollo's Chariot. It even sounds fast. (Apollo = messenger of the Gods)

Sooperdooperlooper has to be one of the lamest names out there.

Gotta ride 'em all!

The Best Name is "steel Phantom" or perhaps "the great american scream machiene" the worst is definitely "Drachen Fire" drachen even a word? whats that supposed to mean anyways?...(Drachen Fire: German for broken neck)

Drachen is german for Dragon.
Isn't it in the German section of the park this makes sense.
Boomerang in an Africa section does not make sense.(WOF) Very Original.
Does Vekoma have something with naming rights or are all the parks this lazy. Because you can pretty much get the designer by knowing the name I mean there are not too many different names on Vekoma coasters. Mind Eraser, Boomerang, that pretty much covers about 90% of them.

The Best name for a coaster is Timber Wolf.
However Ghostrider is a great name.

Also The Super Hero thing is fine just stop cloning them.

#1 Steel-Incredible Hulk
#1 Wood--Timber Wolf

Believe it or not, drachen is a word...

'der drachen' is German for dragon, among other things.

Broken neck is 'hals brechen'.
...or maybe it's brechen schnecken.
just kidding, :)
