Pirate themed Eurofighter anyone???


Would obviously depend on the overall aura of the park but maybe something like:

"Buccaneer"
"Swash-Buckle"
"Capt. (park name) Sets Sail"
"Mutiny"
"Seven Seas Expedition"

Got a terraformed MACK Launch coaster in NL2 going. Very futuristic, similar to HELIX, but not quite as green. Colour scheme is like a silver with blue streamlined stripes. Think old Florida Space Mountain, but it's not space themed.


"Blue Strike" or "Silver Strike"

Perhaps "Intel2.0" or "Experiment 1" if you wanted to play on the futuristic theme

Or just simply a number, like "Zero" or "One"

"Falcon"? Or you could go with an electrical theme as blue and yellow can be associated with electricity, perhaps "Electro" or "The Shocker"?

Not sure if anyone's said something like this, and this isn't me asking for a request, but as general help:

- Name your coaster based on it's theme and thrill factor (that's quite obvious).

- As a general tip, it helps to add an adjective in front of (or noun after) the basic name in most cases (e.g. Soaring Eagle not Eagle, Cheetah Hunt not Cheetah)

- If your coaster is aggressive and fast (and scary), name it after something with those properties that fits your coaster type, such as a predator (e.g. jaguar, eagle), a supernatural related being (e.g. Banshee, revenant), a racing related name (e.g. dragster, speedway), e.t.c.

- If your coaster is a family coaster (less aggressive), a fitting name should be used (you wouldn't call a kiddie coaster 'Banshee' :P), possibly based on mythical creatures (e.g. Pegasus - not that some mythical creatures are better for aggressive coasters, such as griffon) or small animals.

- Essentially, just look at your coaster and think about what it reminds you of. For example, if it's very twisty, you couldname it after something like a snake.

Maybe try to use other names to examples I've given, as my examples are mostly common coaster names. Just use them to get an idea.

Tried to make this the least confusing I could - hope it helps some of you.
