That's something their marketing department should have -really- thought about in depth prior to creating it: Spiders are one of the most feared items in the USA- and I know for me I'd not be headed to a park where that was on an attraction.
Huh? I really see nothing wrong with naming a ride after something scary or intimidating. Isn't that the point?
Arachnophobia is -nothing- to laugh at. For ANY reason. There's a difference between a scare, a thrill, and paralyzing fear. One can call a ride Black Widow and not necessarily put an enormous arachnid on the logo.
I guess it's a good thing the industry took Ophidiophobics into consideration then. We wouldn't wanna have any Vipers, Pythons, Black Mambas, Cobras, Anacondas, Rattlers, Diamondbacks, or anything similar out there.
I like the name and logo. Although, to whoever mentioned the "Pitt Pendulum" idea....that was brilliant.
