Kemah annnounced the name of it's new Gravity Group woodie yesterday as THE BOARDWALK BULLIT.

A name not used for a coaster in decades :)

A classic name returns.

Yup, While I think rides like Top Thrill and Kingda and other launchers could have effectively marketed BULLIT.

It suits a woodie just fine :)

What about "Silver Bullet" used in 2005?

Boardwalk Bullet is a great name.

I will be making another trip to Texas for this one!

Another seaside woodie! I can't wait!

I really didn't connect Silver Bullet to the name but your right.

Still, It's rare and not commonly used since the 20s

It's spelled Bullet, not Bullit.

Boardwalk Bullet has been used before? I couldn't find any reference to it in databases or other searches. *** Edited 1/7/2007 5:37:10 PM UTC by depotrat***

No, but *variants* of the name "Bullet" have been around for awhile...

Notably, three Antons cotained the word bullet in their name... ;)

Their Go-Go's remake cracks me up. "Vacation all I ever wanna do..."

Naming it Bullit could have opened up a marketing agreement with Ford.

How 'bout The Dodge Dart. ;)

LOL....just figured out how the coaster got its name.

Apparently Kemah was insistent on being the first coaster listed on rcdb's "New for '07" page... ;)

In related news, expect to see a lot more coasters named "Aardvark" opening in the future.

We are all in agreement that Bullit is neither a correct spelling nor a word at all... aren't we?

That said, Boardwalk Bullet is an awesome name IMO and I think it suits this ride perfectly.

As I recall, Bullitt is a 1968 Warner Bros. movie staring Steve McQueen.

LOL, Gonch! Don't forget you could get a sponsorship from the American Automobile Association...

That's right.. the "AAA Aardvark" :)
