Coaster Nicknames

Wednesday, January 3, 2001 6:49 PM
What are some names you call certain coasters due to either it's appearance, sounds, or ride quality.
Here's a few of mine:
Hercules @ Dorney = Jerkules
due to it's nasty vibrations.
Trailblazer @ Hershey = Snailblazer
slow and simple layout
Great Bear @ Hershey = Great Blah
just doesn't do anything for me.

Iron Dragon = Draggin' Iron
Joker's Jinx = Joker's Junk
Flight of Fear = Flight of Pain

My brother and I call Outer Limits: Flight of Fear--Hanger 18. This has to do with the fact that we were listening to Megadeth on the way down to PKI. Once he saw it, he said hey let's go ride Hanger 18! I thought it was pretty ironic since there is a big "18" on the side of the building.

There's an entirely separate ride called the "Mild Thing," isn't there? I thought their kiddie coaster was named that.
