The only one of these three that I somewhat like is Aqua Racer, and Dragster H2O is the worst of them. I'm not that great with names either (I'd probably call this Speed Spiral or something similar), but there has to be someone in management that has a better idea than these three.

So I'm not the only one who can't stand that name. If you're going to have two related names in one park, at least give them to somewhat related rides (but not ones similar enough to confuse people). I think naming a kiddie coaster after a thrill coaster is cute (Jr. Gemini, Ravine Flyer 3, etc.), but that's about it.

"Runaway Racer" is easily my favorite of those three subpar choices. At least it's lively and alliterative.

Dragster H2O doesn't even make sense! They should just keep the word "Dragster" completely out of the name, and if they insist on using it, at least change it to "H2O Dragster", so it makes sense....

... or am I just crazy?

I think the reason that, erm, Dragster H2O (I can feel the brain cells dying as I type it) is so popular is because the average person's thought process is probably "DRAGSTER H2O WHOA IT HAS THE SAME WORD DRAGSTER LIKE THE BIG FAST ONE THAT GOES REAL FAST I LIKE WHEN IT GOES FAST OKAY MAKE IT THAT NAME"
GP think with caps lock on, by the way.

^Yeah, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it's some kind of mental shortcut based on the TTD association. :|

I have mixed opinions on Dragster H20. Atleast it goes with the idea that the slides are racing, but it is pretty cheesy... :|

I guess it is better than "Boo Slides on Boo Hill", "Backlot Stunt Slide", or "Mat Racer".
