Creative Coaster Name/Theme Ideas

Thursday, June 21, 2001 6:28 AM
I think some parks are showing a lack of creativity with their naming of new rides. The most over used naming cliches are superman and batman. Here are some of my ideas:

1)Free Bird- Southern/Skynyrd Theme
2)Custer's Last Stand
3)Oliver- War of 1812 theme
4)Great Bambino- Baseball Theme
5)Blue Sluice- Whitewater/Mountain Theme
6)Deliverance- Great Theme for Raft ride

Yikes! The last thing I would want to do is ride a Deliverance ride!

RIDE OP: Please keep your hands tied behind a tree, and squeal like a pig! You sure got a pretty mouth!

...and anything with "Force" in the title (z-FORCE, steel FORCE, magnum FORCE, millennium FORCE, expedition ge FORCE...), not to mention all the Cyclones and Hurricanes...

Anyway:
Swamp Thing, Leviathan, The Abyss, Bayou Blaster
Flash, BlackBird, QuickSilver, FireBall
Tingler, Redwood, Big Bertha

I'd like to see a Pearl Harbor themed area, with dueling coasters. It could use those PTC American flag trains, along with another one with the Japanese flag. I'm not too original with names though, so I'll leave that up to you.

I don't know about Pearl Harbor. It kind of is a sensitive issue for a lot of vets. I think it would be better to name a coaster after older wars, Civil, 1812, Revolutionary war.

Nemesis and Oblivion are good - English names are way better than the American ones

About the Pearl Harbor theme, the Japanese side would win, wouldn't they? We won the war, but they kinda screwed us over at Pearl Harbor;). Now, about those names; I always thought that Renegade would be a cool name.

If you really want to draw a crowd, name a ride Free Beer. Think of the marketing possibilities!

New this year at Cedar Point...Free Beer!

Six Flags Great America, the only place to experience Free Beer.

I also happen to think the English do a great job making their coasters.Oblivion is a great name.I also lean towards the mythological names so,i thought Appollo's Chariot was great to.I know it's a female mythological character and with the Exception of Twisted Sisters,i havent heard to many female based names so i think Isis would be a cool coaster name.The I says itself like Eye sis just in case you don't know how to say it :)

Ive always thought a B&M Inverted with the name "The Scavenger" would be kinda cool.

I would really like a dueling coaster themed to be a dogfight in fighter aircraft. Kinda like Top Gun but duel tracks and themed to be in a War Zone or something like that.
And make sure they're B&Ms!

Thunder Eagle at RaceWorld in Pigeon Force used to be called the Intimidator, but they were forced to change it. Does anyone know why?

I'd always thought that a ride named Avalanche with a snowy/alpine theme would be great for a really big hypercoaster. Or there's already a ride named Avalanche and I just can't place it...
