Don't know what this is for. This was just registered this past Feb and I did a search and found no rides with this name. It's called Hydra The Revenge. Kida stupid IMHO. Could this be one of the new names for a Geauga Lake ride?

A water coaster sounds like a possibility, but I think this could maybe be a new name for "Batman: Knight Flight".
Consider this description of the "Hydra" myth from Webster's dictionary...
Hydra \Hy"dra\, n.; pl. E. Hydras, L. Hydr[ae]. [L. hydra, Gr. "y`dra; akin to "y`dwr water.
1. (Class. Myth.) A serpent or monster in the lake or marsh of Lerna, in the Peloponnesus, represented as having many heads, one of which, when cut off, was immediately succeeded by two others, unless the wound was cauterized. It was slain by Hercules. Hence, a terrible monster.
B:KF is currently located on a lakeshore, partially over water. The trademark did list many souvenir items, thus making me think that this name is indeed intended for a major ride. Yes, the trademark was dated a month before the SFWOA purchase, but I imagine that Cedar Fair would have been thinking about these sorts of things at that time, just in case.
Top Thrill Dragster wasn't even filed for copyright until March of 2003. I think that they will be filed for after their announcement next week or the week after, since it has already been stated the rides will be named next week.
does anyone else think that this is a little elaborate for a cedar fair park? the name will take some explaining because not everyone (including me) knows/knew the meaning behind the name. the name also makes some theming necessary but perhaps this is a new trend with CF- to start lightly theming their coasters like TTD was. i also think the name doesnt have the same power as talon does. hydra has a pretty tame connotation to me
