CP's Web cam name game for new coaster, the truth?

Sunday, November 18, 2001 7:16 PM
I think CP is now playing mind games with us with their web cam, just to keep the anticipation level running high. Or they will continue with this name game and all the names together are a puzzile or a riddle and the answer would be the name of the new coaster. So far they have had Twister, then Gale and now Fury for the web cam's name. If you so far put those 3 together it has to do with the weather in the area. So the name could be weather related, especially since it will be right next to Lake Eire on the beachfront.

Well, whatever the case of the (multiple impulses) [heh] I don't think they would repeat the word "force" in it, like so many seem to think...

Fury for (one) of them sounds good :)

I'm betting on Ballistic Twister or Wicked Twister.

I don't see a problem with teh word "force" they have two "streaks" and no one confuses them.  Gale Force is an awesome name for being on the lake.

Does CCI know how to make a bad coaster?

It's not that they would be confused, it's that they are built only 2 years apart.

Jeff said that they were coming up with a way to solve capacity issues on a shuttle and maybe they are building three tracks (Twister, Gale, and Fury).

Nope, Ballistic will not be used for sensitivity reasons. You can't use names of military weapons at a time like this.

perhaps three rides (impulse and two flats since there were rumors before that there would be more then one ride) will have twister in one name, gale in another name and fury in the last name and have a sort of "storm boardwalk" type of theme...i think it would be cool.

I think they are messing with everyone. They probably read this board and are laughing their butts off right now. If I was in CP management I would be doing it.

That's stupid! What about 5 years from now when nobody cares that it was built during war time or if it was announced a few months ago...then it wouldn't be an issue. Besides, who cares if it's called Ballistic? It's not like it's name is Target: Usama...it's the name of a missile as well as a cool name for someone that's going nuts.

That's exactly what I was thinking, CPgenius.  Too bad, no Ballistic   I'm betting on Wicked Twister now.

I say we all just wait for an official announcement from Cedar Fair to resolve the name game issues.
