"Dragster H2O" is a pretty sad name. I remember about 2 weeks ago they posted a status saying "What should we name our new slide?". Some of the responses were terrible: "extreme aqua? but with a really big X" "Coolangata" "Mat Racer".
The better responses: "Fallopian Tubes" "The Glory Holes" "Hydroseeker" "Matersaurs Alive"

Bravo!
But seriously Dragster H20 is (In my opinion) even worse than what Cedar Fair could've done, unless they named the slide "Slide"
My Top 5 Coasters - 1). El Toro 2). Intimidator 305 3). Thunderhead 4). Kingda Ka 5). Apollo's Chariot

IMO, "Slide" is better than Dragster H2O. :b

From Screamscape:

(3/29/12) Cedar Point announced on Twitter late last week that the voting has ended to name their new Mat Racer slide. The winning name was “Dragster H2O!”

That name really is terrible! But the public gobbled it up and picked it, so what do I know? ;)
I would rather be off riding coasters!

To us, the name is one of most ridiculous names for a water slide but to the GP it apparently sounds like a good name. So what are we to do about it?! They have spoken and stuck with it.

Something I was reading on Screamscape:
2013 - New Coaster(s) - Rumor - (3/30/12) Rumors for Cedar Point often have to be taken with the proverbial “grain of salt”, and this one would fall into that category, so don’t hold me to it. According to message I received today, there is also talk around The Point about adding a second project for 2013. If the rumor has any truth to it, we could see Cedar Point adding a small kiddie coaster in the same season as their next big coaster in order to jump up to the all time high of 19 coasters at once in the park. Another side of this move is that Six Flags Magic Mountain is currently tied with CP with 17 coasters and has made it clear they will open their 18th coaster in 2013 as well, so adding two in the same year to The Point would be the sure way to 1UP The Mountain.
As for the location… our source has heard some rumbling about adding to the Frontier section of the park, but with two possible coasters in the works, it’s hard to say which project is intended for exactly which location just yet.

If this is true I will be so sad since I really wanted SFMM to win The Coaster Crown :( But again, I'm not a hater, and it will definitively be something I will look forward to in 2013. Your thoughts?

I've seen it once, it's made of cardboard that was soaked in urine and allowed to dry. Then a toilet-paper mache was added to cover it completely with it also being decorated with crayon. Finally, some cheap plastic 'jewels' were added for a final touch.... really nothing special to look at.
