Busch parks deliver the best name for coasters.


Montu, Kraken, Kumba, Gwazi, Griffon, Alpengeist, Apollos Chariot, Manta are all great coaster name.


Six Flags can sometimes pick good names, Such as Nitro and Tatsu, Goliath, Medusa (despite its weird theme)


It is hard for me to Pick a top ten favorite


But I think Gwazi, Kraken and Montu are my favorite names, mainly because of the story behind them

My faves:

- Lethal Weapon (100% accurate description - I can't believe no one has died yet from head trauma)

- Expedition Everest (the ride delivers on the promise the name suggests - much more than a simple coaster)

- Rampage

- Rolling Thunder

- Banshee

- Phoenix

- Boulder Dash

- Shivering Timbers

- Mind Eraser




Names I dislike:

- Ant Farm Express

- Sky Princess

- Hurler

- Sooperdooperlooper

- Boomerang: Coast-to-Coaster

- Cornball Express

- Tig'rr (is the apostrophe really necessary?)

- Mantis

- Thundernation

- Jaguar! (and any other name with an ! at the end)

1) Batwing hands down the best name for a Batman themed coaster (even if it has no actual themeing)

2) Two Face: the Flipside has to be one of the coolest names for an inverted boomerang.

3) Fahrenheit

4) Kingda Ka

5) The Renegade

6) Tatsu

7) Goliath

8) Afterburn

9) Jokers Jinx

10) De Ja Vu

I had more than 10 so.....

11) Hydra

12) Medusa

13) Kumba

14) Nitro

15) Max RPM

16) Nemesis


These aren't in any particular order, just in order from when I thought of it. (excluding Batwing and Two Face)
