Who says this country is ultra-PC & conservative when it comes to names?

I'd be more impressed if they had gone with the A$$ripper.

Hopefully this isn't just a re-theme of their current speed slide called the cliff dive. The description of the ride sounds just the same as that current slide. The current speed slide "cliff dive" starts at the top of the triple slide complex (which is suppose to be 10 stories tall) and basically goes down about 20 feet flattens out and then falls the rest of the way to the ground. You can see the slide in the background of this picture:

the foreground isn't bad either.

Mega-Wedgie: "64-foot free fall" (Source: press release)
Acapulco Cliff Dive: "Height: 65 feet"
(Source: http://www.sixflags.com/parks/whitewaterbay/Rides/acapulco.html)

If it's not a re-theme, there isn't much point in adding it unless the capacity was bad (It shouldn't be for a 5-second slide).

Sadly, this is just a new version of the same slide since the last one was deteriorating. I drove by the other day and saw them working on it.

It's pretty sad that Six Flag's hometown keeps getting screwed like this. I can't believe that they were too cheap to install a Tornado or something like that.

Mega Wedgie wasn't just a cool marketing name, it's what they really did to our Asses down here.
