I wonder if the GP will be confused about Sky Screamer & Scream!, the names are very similar.
They could've changed Sky Screamer's name to something else.
I like SkyScreamer name. The General public is stupid, I heard people say they just rode Mr. Freeze at Fiesta Texas.
SkyScreamer was the name of the first gen drop tower at Astroworld. Since most park-loving Houstonians head to SFFT now, that should make the confusion even worse.
SFFT: come ride the new SkyScreamer!
GP from Houston: Hooray! I wondered what happened to it! Wait... that's not the SkyScreamer, that's the Gunslinger on a stick!
Anyway, the Astroworld version had a story to go with the name: The SkyScreamer is a bat-like winged creature that swoops down from the sky and picks up unsuspecting people, takes them high into the air, and then with a siren-like WHOOP WHOOP, he drops them. The SkyScreamer drop tower had a whoop-whoop siren that sounded before the cars dropped. On opening day, they sold foam visors that said SkyScreamer across the bill. There were eyes that stuck out above the bill and bat-like black wings that stuck out from the sides.
