If you could rename one of your home-park coasters, which one would it be, and what would you change the name too? I would pick Shockwave at my homepark PKD. I would change the name to Standing Ovation or something of that sort.

Cornball Express - Pine Crackler? I don't know. I keep thinking I can come up with a better name for it...but it's just perfect...Cornball Express.
Will be at Busch Gardens Williamsburg April 28th.

Change the name sooperdooperlooper at Hersheypark to just plain Looper... which is what most of the locals call it anyway.
I promise I won't go off on a rant about those @#$%^&*! Toboggan's again.

I would rename Vertical Velocity @ SFGAm, 'T2: The Next Wave' as a homage to the late, great Tidal Wave.... which is now sitting in a small corner of SFoG. :(

I would like to see the "Riverside" part of the Cyclone at SFNE reinstated. It sounds better, and because the park is still next to a river, it wouldn't be out of line.

I've never really cared for the name Sky Princess, which is about two hours from me at Dutch Wonderland. I know its a family ride and not some wild thriller, but that name has got to go. Being a family coaster, its really not a bad ride, and I think the name causes it to lose some of the respect it deserves.
