I've always wondered why people don't like it when coasters are given the same name, but have no issue with similarly named flat rides.

No one complains about Scramblers, Tilt-A-Whirls, Whips, Ferris Wheels, Enterprises, Pirates, etc.

I have no problems with multiple parks naming their coasters "Roller Coaster."

What would you think about multiple "Maxx Airs," "Sky Hawks," etc?

Maxx Air sounds like a character in an amusement park porn film.

"Did somebody say they needed their lap bar checked?"

I like it when parks retheme their flat rides, but dont have a huge problem when they dont...

My all time favorite rethemed/renamed mundane flat ride, was the Sportland Pier Hell Hole (Rotor)

Don't worry it's not one of those Angelfire links with a billion pop up ads.. it's a legit Wildwood site.

Looks like a fun, although brief, ride. The stall out hill-inversion-element thing looks awesome. Should be fun to see the debates continue as to how exactly these RMC rides should be classified as far as wood vs. steel vs. hybrid goes.

I understand the persistent need to classify. I mean, I understand that it exists....I do not understand why people care so much.

The thing to care about is FUN. And this ride is gonna have abundance.

Because they have OCD and need to organize everything. I think the debate settled at hybrid, though it's unsettling to have to create a third category. They LOOK like they're wooden but have steel tracks. Then again the opposite is true for Comet at Great Escape, which has a wooden track with steel supports that are designed to look like wooden supports.

My point is the materials used do make a difference.
