...it just dawned on me this morning that both the Clementon and Timber Falls woodies are named for different forms on onrushing water: Tsunami [liquid form] and Avalanche [frozen form].
Coincidence? Discuss... ;)

I just noticed that Six Flags has 8 coasters named Superman, and 12 named Batman...coincidence??
But seriously, that's interesting, you have too much time on your hands moosh.

I wonder what gas they will name their next ride? Vapor, Steam, Flatulence....the possibilites are endless!!

what about Balken?

And both are nowhere near being ready to open, despite the fact that the season is well underway. Another coincidence? Methinks so.

And they're both devastating forms of onrushing water. Wouldn't Drizzle and Flurry be more family friendly?

You mean Falken - no connection with water at all. Though it's a great ride.

I do have too much time on my hands despite being slammed at work today ;)
My point is that it is an odd coincidence that parks 2,000 miles apart from each other would name their wooden coasters for
devastating forms of onrushing water [thanks, Mill!].
An unfrozen avalanche is a tsunami! A frozen Tsunami is an avalanche! Doesn't that just warp your mind?!? LOL!

Don't you mean Sunami, moosh?;)

Speaking of mind-warping coaster name coincidences, there are two coasters named after storms in Pigeon Forge, TN...both in the

Well, how about timberhawk and falken, 1000s of miles away from each other, and both named after birds, and both have first drops to the right, and both are over 2000ft long. Coincidence or what?!? ;)
A little bit of a stretch I suppose.

Clint - No, I mean Tsunami. Clementon changed the name again:

Speaking of devastating forms of onrushing water, did you all know that
was the original name for M:TR? Fascinating...

Whats with all the M:TR 'jokes' lately?:)
Jeez, mOOSH, I'm just gonna call it

The coaster formerly known as Tsunami, but changed to the coaster named Sunami, but now back to Tsunami again

Mixing work and pleasure is a *sporting event* in California. :)

I wonder if we'll see a "Day After Tomarrow... THE RIDE"
Thursday, June 3, 2004 11:42 AM
It would be an Arrow 4D coaster. The name would also describe the wait for the ride.
