Coolest Flat Ride name

Wednesday, April 4, 2001 6:51 AM
Hey everyone! I was wondering what you all think is the coolest name for a flat ride. I really like these names; The Mighty Axe @ Mall of America, Highland Fling @ SFSTL, SHAZAM @ SFSTL, KlockWerks @ PCW (Although I haven't been there), Hometown Fun Machine @ SFGAM, Triple Play @ SFGAM, CHAOS @ VF and CP, and there are probably more, but I will let you all say some that you like! Thanks!!

For God loved the world so much that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not die but have eternal life.

"Schwabinchen" at CP is fun to try to pronounce.

janfrederick's avatar Fiddler's Fling (or "The Fling") at at PGA. "Orlean's Orbit" is cool too.

Yes, I'd have to go with Schwabinchen. I once told my Spanish teacher that "Schwabinchen" was my middle name. :)

I'd have to go with Chaos (there isn't any better name to describe that ride!) and Calypso, because I love the ride and the music. :)

I like Aero 360, the name itself is cool but the clever way Aero also refers to the KW arrows on the ride.

It sounds odd hearing the "Orbit" called "Orleans Orbit" seeing as how the one @ SFGAm was moved out of Orleans Place years ago.... but "Fiddler's Fling" is still the same. (It's funny you mention those 2 rides, because besides "Triple Play", those are probably my 2 favorite flats at GA.)
Rest In Peace, SKY WHIRL...

wow! I didn't know the Orbit was ever in Orleans Place. Of course my favortie flat (ride and name) is in Orleans Place @ SFGAm; The Cajun' Cliffhanger.

By far, the Turkish Twist at Canobie Lake. Second only ny the Psychodrome in the same park. Turkish Twist is an old rotor in an wierd Turkish Temple Building. Guests watch riders spinning in above the rotor while in line. The Psychodrome is an indoor Scrambler in the dark with lasers and other lighting effects.

Poltergeist,Funtown pier Seaside Heights NJ.It is an indoor scrambler that is done in the dark but with music and strobe lights flashing.

Top 3 coasters i have ridden..
1)Steel Force,Dorney Park.PA

I am sure Nitro will knock steel force out of #1.

Nifty name, nifty ride.

SFGAm: Hometown Fun Macine. It says what it is. It's such a boring ride, but it's such a fun ride, and funny to see the Whizzer always get stuck on the lift!

V2, Deja Vu... how can it be better? Add Viper! Oh, wait. It's already there!

Right on CrystalKat, Chaos is a cool name and it describes the ride as well as any name could. I also like Der Twister for the gravitron at SFFT -- dunno why, it just sounds cool I guess.
