Now that's a good list there!

1. I take it the name "Draggin Fire is said in reference to "Draggin Iron" (for Cedar Point's Arrow suspended coaster), as it too goes pretty slow!

2. I got a real laugh out of your nickname for CW's Flight Deck! Of course, we have the "Generic" nicknames for these Vekoma SLC's (Hang n Bangs)!

3. I agree with your nickname for tilt a whirls. I avoid such rides, as they do nothing but make me SICK!!! :?r

I think I've got another good one!

This is for the now defunct coaster Fujin Raijin II at the now closed Expoland park in Suita, Japan.

Robb Alvey already gives it the nickname of "TOGO Death Machine II". But for Robb's case in this video, I nickname it the "Mighty TOGO Nut Buster" or "Robb Alvey's Nut Buster"! :lol: :lmao:

I hope Robb finds no offense in this.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!
