LMAO Dave ^ :lol:

It's the media departments who come up with the logos and names but this is always developed after the theme of the ride is know, so until the theme is known then the ride has a codename (unless if we're talking about that whore Rita :P)

If it was an intimidating record breaker, I've always thought -

Intimidation

The Machine

Well, that's what I did on RCT...you can put Pink Floyd's 'Welcome to the Machine' on the second one, too...

Its like putting a title to a book. Its much easier to write about something and then decide a title from what went on when finished, wheras making a title already means that you have to stay on topic and are limited to what you can write.

I think a name has to fit the theme and the ride. You can't exactly call a coaster Dave's big machine.

I can think of:

The Vivisector
Slice 'n' Dice (For a mondial topscan e.g.)
Supernatural Inferno
The Diesector (has to spelt that way)
Zoarthura: The Ravenger (My personal favourite)
Tempest (That's a good name)
Aeropocalypse (Flying coaster name)
Fissure
Clockwerk Calamity
Hydro
The Lost River Expedition
Pharoah's Fury (Sounds like Faroah's Fury)

Clean, short, snappy and intimidating...

The ride itself could be themed around a nuclear research facility which has had a severe meltdown or something, and the track would be themed as the mangled wreckage....


first post!!!

It could be based on the Cheronbyle Disaster and it could be like storm force ten, where money is donated to some kind of cherenboyle* relief charity.

There is a gerstlauer launch coaster at Farup in Denmark which is called 'Lynet' which is translated to lightning.

My idea is Zulu thought it could have an African tribe theme

I love Tempest, my favourite gladiator.

Tempest, Queen On Speed.

As long as its a well thought up name I don't really care about coaster names.

The dark forest theme would fit well with the name 'Fiore'. It sounds like fury, spelt like fire and is Italian for flower.
