Cedar Fair (lack of) creativity strikes again!

More KD 2025 ride names

Wooden Vomit Coaster

Wooden coaster that lives in the woods like a bear

Stand up coaster that used to have name we stole from Six Flags

Bobsled like coaster in jungle section where it doesn't snow

Back Lot Stunt Coaster. Maybe it's not the greatest name, but think of all the fun you could have re-arranging the first letter of all the words. :)

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

Not sure how the other meanings evolved.

Mostly from everything else our young posting victim had to after this thread was closed...from which spawned the legendary (infamous?) pancake thread.

BTW, did you know he's still on the forum? A little older and wiser, tho. After all, that was a long time ago!

Only you would call your own thread legendary. Egomaniac. ;)

But it is the true source of the pancakes.

Thanks for that Playa. I remember reading it back then, but I just reread the whole thing since I've had nothing else to do today. It's been too long since I've picked up an issue of CO. Or was it finally cancelled? It can't be easy to create a villain to top CPNut.
I love how Jeff ends the thread, "are you stalking me?"

Kings Island celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2022, with its famous "1979 Scenic Railway," "Green Tower that isn't A Drop Ride," "Racing Coaster That Doesn't Race Much of the Time," "Junk In A Box," "The Ride You Still Call Drop Zone," "It has Deli and Rium in its name: Why can't you just put the two together," and our hyper coaster "Steel Force."

(I'm tired, go easy)

Dental Plan! Lisa Needs Braces.

^Ti many martoonies!

Fate is the path of least resistance.

^^Too much time on hands. :)


I guess I don't mind the name change because I loathed the original name. It didn't take an ability to predict the future to realize The Italian Job was movie that would be forgotten almost as quickly as it appeared. No Top Gun, that's for sure.

I never rode this coaster anyways. And, I certainly can't rember what it was called at kings Island either. Was it days of thunder? I am trying very hard to remember the name of the ride.

I know it was pretty much built at all the paramount parks. Candas wonderland as well. But, can't think of it. But, I do think back lot stunt coaster is a very stupid name. But, I also thought that Top Thrill dragster was a stupid name for a coaster. But, I can't say that now.

I think Top Thrill Stunt Coaster would have Cedar Fair written all over it. And, it would be a very fitting name for the ride. What do you think?

Top Thrill Dragster is a play on the term 'top fuel dragster.' What about Backlot Stunt Coaster relates to top fuel drag racing? Makes zero sense, unlike the actual name, which is about as fitting a name as you can get for this coaster.

I actually never loathed the name, but I distinctly remember thinking that 'Italian Job' was par for the course since Kings Dominion has a stellar knack for using flash-in-the-pan movies as themes. At least rides like Days of Thunder and Italian Job were just that: rides. I still can't believe they created an entire themed area for Wayne's World.

^I can't believe it's been at least five years since Paramount "announced" they were re-theming the Wayne's World areas...

Cohesive theming must just *seem* easy.... ;)

Here we go

When I go to my local breakfast house dubbed "Omega", they serve delectibale pancakes with a side of maple syrup in a small silver jug. While most would take the pristine mix of:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

and douse them with said maple syrup, I find it more effiecient to tear said glorious bread like matter and dip it in afore-mentioned silver cup brimming with maple syrup. You may liken it to tortilla chips in salsa, only much more effective and also maple syrup rules your soul.

It seems silly to complain about Backlot Stunt Coaster when the Carolina kids get this: http://www1.cedarfair.com/carowinds/attractions/detail.cfm?ai_id=3

That one's worth complaining about, IMO.


Flight Deck? People get paid to think of that? It doesn't even sound fun.
Lord Gonchar's avatar
Yeah, Flight Deck is bad...real bad. I don't mind BLSC one bit, but Flight Deck?

That's one step above Roller Coaster 1.

rollergator's avatar
Borg apparently is also becoming "Nighthawk". That one I actually like.....but kinda surprised it hadn't already been TM'd (isn't that the name of that NASTY flat at SFNE that I *finally* rode this year?).

Flight Deck is laughably bad though....and someone gets PAID for coming up with that kind of idea? Wow! :)

Vater's avatar
I haven't been to Carowinds since before Top Gun was installed, but I kind of assumed there wasn't much of a 'Top Gun' theme that would necessitate a name that was still loosely associated with it. I think 'Inverted Coaster' would even sound better than Flight Deck.

You're not kidding. I literally laughed out loud when I read the name.

As much as I hate repeat names, I'd rather have Talon or Raptor or Silver Bullet (given the color scheme of Top Gun it could work) over "Flight Deck". BLSC is still no big deal IMO.

"Nighthawk" is just amazing. My friend and I have this ongoing joke about how many "-hawk" names Cedar Fair can use. We now have:


At least there is only one "-hawk" ride at each park.
