I always call Rebel Yell @ PKD "Uno" because it was my first coaster. Also, my dad can never remember the name of Joker's Jinx so I've started calling it "the launched one" much more than I should.

"my friends and I call the Whizzer at SFGAm the love coaster. you'd know why if you rode it with a girl."

I did that last year @ my school field trip.

Good call on those coaster nicknames coaster lobotomy, lol.

My friends, relatives, and I call Shockwave at SFGAm "that thing that makes brain matter flow out of your ears after 10 rides in a row"

Hows that for a nickname? I always thought nicknames are supposed to be shorter than the name.

V2, Deja Vu... how can it be better? Add Viper! Oh, wait. It's already there!

One more to my list...

I don't even know the real name of the thing... At PKI, the Flying Eagles or the Screaming Eagles... Anyway, we refer to it as the Screeching Eels. She said it on accident one time and it stuck.

Growing up at Geauga Lake, I used to call two of their coasters the Dorkscrew and the Double Whoopie. Can you guess which two i'm talking about?:)

During one of my recent unsuccessful attempts to bring up a website, I secured the domain name (don't go there, it's pretty much nothing), short for "The Greatest American Scream Machines". Eventually, I used the acronym to name the similarly named ride at Six Flags Great Adventure, and while sharing casual information with a friend, I used the acronym and she asked me why I was going to ride an "Orgasm Machine". Needless to say, the name stuck, and TGASM at SFGAdv has forever become the "Orgasm Machine".

Additionally, a friend of mine calls TZ:ToT at WDW, the "Tower of Swearers," because of his first experience on the ride at a young age, and the colorful new words he learned as the riders plummeted.

NITRO kicks it into high gear...only at Six Flags Great Adventure!

I have a couple:

Before they removed the OTSRs on the Flight of Fears at PKI and PKD I called them "Flight of Pain." I can't wait to ride them now that the OTSRs are gone!

I call T2 at SFKK "Tylenol 2," since that's what you'll need to take to get rid of the headache after you ride. Another generic term for Vekoma SLC's such as T2 is "Hang N Bang."

And, as mentioned above, Iron Dragon at CP = "Draggin' Iron."

I thought I had more, but they escape me at the moment...

My friend and I came up with a good one for MS after ERT at Coastermania '99, "Spinal Tapper". When one of us wants to ride it, we just ask the other, "Wanna get 'Tapped?". The first drop was the inspiration for this one.

anyway, I've got one for every SFGAm coaster

Whizzer - The Whiz

Demon - Stucky (for the countless times it's gotten stuck including the memorable stop in the loop.

Viper - Striker

American Eagle - Old Baldy (for bald eagle)

Iron Wolf - The Wolf

Batman the Ride - Batman

Shockwave - Rock Star (for all the "headbanging")

Giant Drop - Giant Turd (it looks like one!)

Raging Bull - Da Chicago Bull

Vertical Velocity - V Squared

Deja Vu - Double Whammy

Take it up a notch, Mr. Operator! I wanna feel my brains in my feet!

My friends and I call any freefall "The Droppy Ride."

funny stuff there....I have ALWAYS called all of those rides Hellevators, even before I knew there was one by that name.....SFKK got points for naming their 2nd-gen drop ride appropriately.

Also, Robin Chiller, after we got done riding, I said to Jill "you mean the Boy Wonder kicked your butt?". To this day, Robin is just "the boy wonder"....

Ninja at SFoG is just "the black belt" 'cuase he gives an awesome kick to the side of the head....

LOL, we use "bookin'" in southern Ohio, it means going really fast, don't ask me why!

I have always called Iron Dragon "Draggin Iron."

I don't know if this counts, but SFWoA never comes out S-F-W-O-A for me, or Six Flags, or Six Flags Worlds of Adventure. It always seems to come out as "S-F Woah," LOL.

Steel Phantom = Advil: The Ride

And however un-enthusiast this may be, I always say THE Steel Phantom or THE Phantom's Revenge. But they are the only coaster(s) I do this with.

Umm, I guess I can't hold a candle to all these new and innovative nicknames, but I call American Eagle "Eagle", Sky Trek Tower is "The Horny Donut", Raging Bull is either "Bull" or "Bullie", and Batman: The Ride is "Batman". Kind of boring, no?
