Flight Deck GONE!!! (at CGA)

Well, the name is, anyway. The new one is Afterburn which is better but probably not quite as good as Afterburner.


Hopefully they'll carry it over to Carowinds etc.

It looks a little odd being Afterburn and not Afterburner, but it's still better than Flight Deck...

Sounds like heartburn.

Or a loud sputtering noise after your heartburn's uh, resolved itself...

NOTE: Severe fecal impaction may render the above words highly debatable.

Sounds like the odd sensation you get from really intense inverted coasters, as I am sure that one is.

Sounds like something to be sponsored by a company making shaving cream. What happened? Does Sega have a patent on the Afterburner name?

^I had to look up Afterburner - the one coaster I knew had that name is the one in Indiana. Then I found out the Screamin' Squirrel in Russia bears the same name. So maybe the "full" name only works for S&S/Arrow... ;)

They could have gone with Fright Deck. ;)

Afterdeck
Flightburn

Shockburn/Flightwave if they can finally get those pieces from SFGAm shipped.

The one at Kings Island is now called Reflux

Carowinds, being the best of the bunch, gets to call theirs Dyspepsia

how about...

THE BURNINATOR!!!!

The license would be cheap!

I wonder how many of the parks' merchandising folks screamed "I can't market a ride named Flight Deck!" until someone listened? No one's buying "Flight Deck" shirts.


Hi

Afterburn is the product of an Afterburner. The actual flame, if you will.

This thread just proves that no matter what they name it, you guys will never be happy.

Much better. Hopefully the others follow suit or (even better) get their own names.

I can live with Afterburn. I think many people will call it Afterburner. Like so many people call Top Thrill Dragster, Top Fuel Dragster. Flight Deck was not good. I hope the oher Flight Decks are changed to this in lieu of Flight Deck.

at least the name implies ACTION, Not something you stand around on.

Chuck, Thinking it's good, I'll buy that name, Not Flight Deck.

LOL.

Truer words have never been said.

Enthusiasts here b*tched about "Flight Deck." And for their sake and by some miracle they actually changed the name. Yet they still b*tch about it. :)

At least they didn't call it Reheat...
