Kings Island installs new sign, ride name changes on the way

Kings Island's old sign with the Paramount name and logo was removed last November. The new sign was installed at the beginning of January. Other signs are changing at the park, too. The Paramount-themed attractions such as Tomb Raider: The Ride, Top Gun, Face/Off, and Italian Job: Stunt Track will have new names and signs this season. The new names will be announced when all of the names have been finalized.
I think someone in the forum thread mentioned this, but I don't see why they don't keep the Top Gun name. Face/Off, too, for that matter. These terms are certainly not exclusive to Paramount. You'd have to change the fonts and take the slash out of Face/Off, but why change when top gun was originally a military term, and more people relate a face off to hockey than a forgotten movie.
