Is it just me, or is the "Triple Hurricane" a strange name for the coaster? If I lived in parts of Florida ripped apart during the summer, I don't know if I'd find the name sympathetic or offensive.

I think I found an error with RCDB....The Vekoma family coaster is called Okeechobee Rampage
. The family suspended coaster should be called Swamp Thing. RCDB lists this otherwise. *** Edited 11/15/2004 7:34:58 PM UTC by cdrpointcrazy44***

The wooden coaster was originally supposed to be named Hurrican Charley. Then the other two hurricanes came, and public outcry from the original name influenced the park to change it. Triple Hurricane doesn't really point out any hurricanes. While it does represent the 3 that hit this area this year, it makes no mention of any particular one, so it might be less "offensive" to some.
Just my take. My opinion is that people are too sensitive nowadays.
