Cedar Fair (lack of) creativity strikes again!

Kick The Sky's avatar Seeing the rename on IJ seems like a descriptive name, maybe they could rename all the standups to a more appropriate name. Perhaps Ow, My Balls?

"There's only one little problem--they weren't even allowed to keep the Mini-Cooper look according to the guy from KD who took questions at the ACE Fall Thrillfest in Oct. The fronts and rears of the vehicles are being changed."

Same thing I heard also... Don't care what they name it.. still going to ride it. Of course they will sell shirts and other junk ... Maybe we will get lucky and get a bunch of free stuff at the next Fall Thillfest.

Are they going to change the names on the other 2?

Mamoosh's avatar JoeParkGuest: "Let's go ride that!"

JaneParkGuest: "What is it?"

JoeParkGuest: "It's a coaster."

JaneParkGuest: "Cool...what does it do?"

JoeParkGuest: "Lets see...says on the map that its launched, and then you go thru some back lot movie sets."

JaneParkGuest: "Oh, ok...does it do anything else?"

JoeParkGuest: "Says here it does some stunts!"

JaneParkGuest: "Awesome! What's it called?"

JoeParkGuest: "Back Lot Stunt Coaster!"

JaneParkGuest: "Nah...that's a lame name. Let's ride something else."

CoasterMonkey, that would be hilarious. I can see it now-- "Whoever got the highest score on the Scooby-Doo challenge today gets an Italian Job hood and the runner-up gets a bumper!"

Kick The Sky: Some of these theme park chains wouldn't have to do much theming for Idiocracy: The Ride. They could simply roll a golf cart full of guests through their front office.

But would Fuddruckers sponsor it?

*sigh* boy you can tell it is the off season when the enthusi-asses start whining about the most moot things.


I completely agree


Someone warm up the griddle, it sounds like we're going to need a round of pancakes for some of these posters. :rollingeyes:

I hate to correct you, but I do not believe this is a correct use of the "pancake" reference. If anything, replacing "pancakes" with "gravy buffet" might be a more accurate statement. ;)

It may be time to once again explain the history and proper use of the pancakes. I do not feel that I am in the proper sarcastic mood to type such things. Where is 'Playa when you need him? ;)

*** Okay, back on topic

Um, no James, the pancakes reference was dead on. Unless the meaning has changed since I have been gone -- which I doubt. It like bootlegged cheeseburgers will probably always have their same meaning.

Bill, you still haven't come to Missouri yet to do a tour of the state's parks with me.

Moosh, name has changed, but we still need to take our show on the road

john peck's avatar I dunno.... the name Backlot Stunt Coaster doesn't bug me and I like the ride experience.

I just wonder if they will keep the same car bodies, depending on their license.

Re-doing 3 rides could get really expensive.

Im still wondering if Kings island is going to keep Tomb Raider after all the trouble they had with it this year.

The pancakes reference evolved from a certain young enthusiasts obsession with Jeff.

Not sure how the other meanings evolved.

I could be wrong though, but I do not think I am.

I dunno. I think I would rate Italian Job as a better, strictly roller coaster, experience than Mystery Mine. I only hope the theming doesn't suffer, such as the helicopter and the flaming barrels. With Cedar Fair at the helm, it may only be a matter of time before they slap fluorescent handprints on the parking garage and sell 3-D glasses in the queue.

JK, yes that is where the original pancakes reference came from. Neuski, how quickly you forget the rumblings of CPlaya
