Looks like Joyland is going to be having a contest to rename Greezed Lightning in the next few months, with the ride opening in 2007.

Acoustic Viscosity's avatar How about Greezy or Lightnin'? Does SF have Greezed Lightnin' TMed? Ideally, they should keep the name.

Does "Greezed Lightning" mean anything in English besides the literal meaning?
The literal German translation "wie ein ge├Âlter Blitz" ("like a greased lightning") means something is moving incredibly fast beyond comprehension - do you have the same saying in English?

Another one along the same line is, although a little more politically incorrect is "wie eine gesengte Sau" ("like a singed pig") - which means roughly the same.

I know you have the saying "like a bat out of hell" in english.

There must be more.

Olsor's avatar superman - you've got it. Greased Lightning = fast. No other meanings... except for the song in the musical "Grease" about a car that is supposed to be--you guessed it--fast.

They ought to keep the name and advertise it as "Lightning does strike twice."

I'm still surprised that Joyland is getting a coaster of this size. It'll be interesting to see how it operates. However, I enjoy shuttle loops and will be glad to have one in my town of residence.

The article says that the coaster is already in town. I think I'll head by the park in the next few days to see if it's being stored at the park. If it is, I'll try and get some pictures.
