Six Flags Great America (SFGAm) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Wow, people are really jumping through hoops to come up with a problem with every name they come up with. Good lord...

 

Personally I think this name is awesome in the "six-flagsiest" way possible.

 

Saw the name on their Facebook feed this afternoon and people were complaining that it isn't a "family name" and that it "promotes drinking". Give me a break!

 

I like the name. It's original and not another lame superhero themed ride. I would have screamed if they decided to call it "Wonder Woman Lasso of Truth".

Say what you will about the name (at least it doesn't include the word "coaster" in the name), but that image is straight outta fright fest.

 

But at the same time, it's all like: Don't mind me, I'm just flossing my eyes out with this steroid-infused Larson Looper.

After such names like CraZanity and (Insert DC Character Here), "Mardi Gras Hangover" is a breath of fresh air from Six Flags.

This. At least it's not something that lowers my IQ every time I type it, like CraZanity or (I am about to be officially dumb) Blue Hawk.

 

Also, this is the second time today that Six Flags news had me checking to make sure I hadn't time traveled to April 1st. (Not sure why I was surprised that SFMM is really adding trims to Green Lantern...)

Okay, the part about them marketing it as a coaster is shameful. Calling Bourbon Street Fireball at SFA their 10th coaster is just awful.

 

BUT, Mardi Gras Hangover is an incredible name. I'm in awe. It's original, it pushes boundaries, and most importantly, it's hilarious!!!!

2 Things to defend Six Flags:

- Valleyfair called their Northern Lights DiskO Coaster a Coaster before Six Flags called any Larson Loop a Coaster.

- Six Flags called them coasters from the beginning, Cedar Point called theirs a coaster months AFTER it was announced.

 

The only thing I can't wait for is Cedar Point's 201ft Model called LoopHawk with all of Cedar Point's 20 Records Broken

Its neither shameful nor awful. They bought the damn thing, they can market it however they want. Just because they call it a coaster doesn't mean you or any other enthusiasts has to. The fact that it gets nerds so riled up over something that has little to no consequence on their lives makes it more and more awesome imo. In fact, I hope Six Flags buy a second super loop for one of their parks that has one and then market it as dueling coasters just so I can watch some heads explode.

Fair. Also "LoopHawk." <-

Never mind my "shameful" and "awful" hyperbole. It's just my opinion that it's not a coaster, and marketing something that we all (I think) agree isn't a coaster as one for a notable milestone (10th coaster) is, I don't know, a little disappointing. And if Six Flags wants to call their next tilt-a-whirl a coaster, then I can simultaneously hold the position that it's hilarious and terrible. I'm not a nerd who gets so riled up over things that it affects my purchases, etc. Finally, if you actually hope Six Flags buys a second loop thing for one of their parks just to watch people freak out about it, then I'm not the only one being a little hyperbolic.

 

Now back to Mardi Gras Hangover!! Awesome name.

If it angers people then I believe it is a coaster.

 

Why do people care so much is my question, regardless of what it is classified as they are still fun rides and even if you don't like them parks usually have more than 1 ride to enjoy.

Every little bit of this post sums up my opinion perfectly. They're fun, I don't care what they're called and I love that it pisses people off.

I could have used this image about 8,000 times since it's inception but I figured it was time to bring it back from the dead... lol

 

I know i originally didn't know what to think, but now that my brain has calmed down I love that Six Flags actually made a unique name so kudos to them.
