Personal Coaster Nicknames?

Thursday, May 3, 2001 1:54 AM
I'm not talking about Sonny, Papa, Millie...

Anyone have any names for coasters that only they and their buddies use? I'll give my example. When my brother and I were waiting in line for SOB on opening day, we decided that every son is named on the day of his birth. Not sure why, but we decided to name this boy TODD. So if you ever see two guys walking around PKI and hear them mention that they're gonna go pay Todd a visit, you'll know who they are!

I and my friend call The Pepsi Max Big One, "That little thing over there" so when we go on it one of us says, "let's go on that little thing over there" and we all head to TPMBO!! Dunno if that counts....

I call Ghostrider "Bookin'." Before my first ride, a coworker of mine, originally from New York, described it as... "Bro, you be bookin' on that ride." The term stuck.

Honey, I'll be home a little late tonight, I'm gonna go bookin'.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

Last summer when my friends and I went to Cedar Point and rode MF for the first time, while in line we labeled MF as "gigantic death coaster". Cedar Creek Mine Ride also earned a nickname, "country bear jamberoo", (thats a line from a simpsons episode).....i don't know, that ride was just very fun in a very lame way.

I call White Water Landing at CP "YEAH LOG RIDE." Some people were shouting that out in line one day so it stuck. Funny though, WWL has canoes not logs.

My friends and I refer to the Titan as "Tiny"! How's that for a nickname.

You never heard of bookin'? It's slang for moving really fast. Unless you live in DC where 'Bookin" means getting someone's phone number (dont ask 'cause I dont know).

I dont have many for coasters, but I do for some other rides, though they're not very funny...

Cajun Cliffhanger (rotor): The Floor Drop
Yankee Clipper (flume): The boat ride (as opposed to..)
Logger's Run (flume): The Log Ride

Though I occasionally refer to Millie as "that Big Blue Bastard"...

Demon Drop: a.k.a. The Lunch Drop

I was drawing a blank on the name of the magnum once and I wanted to ride it, so I kind of made this noise, "Hey lets go on.. hhhhpppggrr" it kind of sounded like a growl in my throat.. so Sometimes when I'm with my cousin I call it hhhhpppggrr.

I did it like this, I did it like that, I didn it with a wiffle ball bat.. ohhh

I've always called Judge Roy Scream "Judgy". Though, I'm not exactly sure why?!

I call American Eagle The American Beagle.

I turned the Raging term into a catchphrase.

I call Iron Wolf "Oh hell no!"

When the Mean Streak first opened, my friends and I called it the Brown Streak...for obvious reasons... (hey, I was in 3rd grade, for God's sake!)


Coasters...the best natural buzz available.

We call the Scooby Doo @ PKD Hitler in wood form.
If FoF got that great of a makeover than why can't I?

Oh, I forgot one. My family and I call the Tower of Terror at Disney/MGM "The Mickey Mouse House of Flowers." Since my little cousin was scared to death the first time he went on it, we tried to make him laugh and the name stuck.
