Because it makes your belly go "whoaaaahh!" Actually, I think they made up this name because the real ones are Starshots, owned by S&S and they didn't want a lawsuit.

I generally change the names of the coasters and rides anyway. For some reason Scrambled Eggs and Whoa Belly just irk me.

Yeah, some of the names, mainly Whoa Belly, sound strange...same with Scrambled Eggs and Gravitron. (The reason for Gravitron is because at several fairs that I've been to, they have this spinning ride that looks like a spaceship, and it has been called Gravitron. So when I saw that, I was thinking, "Oh cool! They have one of those!" but in fact it was a Top Spin.)
<BR>I always change the names...Whoa Belly will have something to do with the theme, while I usually just change Scrambled Eggs to Scrambler, because Scrambler can fit most themes, whil Scrambled eggs just sounds like a breakfast themed park <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

In the uk version (and presumably europe too) the scrambled eggs is twister, thge graviton top spin and the whoa belly lanched freefall. You can use a hex editor to change them if you want.
