    Coolest Generic SF name

    Which is your favorite generic SF name that has been used on multiple coasters that are totally different?

    I think Medusa is the coolest, I was at a hotel near SFGADV. and saw a commercial about the coaster and it was so cool, with it saying, DON'T LOOK DOWN, SHE'll TURN YOU TO STONE

    Joker Coaster, that commercial happens to sound something like "Medusa rears its ugly head, a monster coaster unlike the world has ever seen. You're strapped to a flying chair, 14 (?) stories in the air. Just don't look down, you can turn to stone." Sorry, I just couldn't resist!

    Because of all that's happened lately, I think that The Great American Scream Machine is a pretty cool name. After all, coasters are the greatest american scream machines (on this soil at least).

    Of the ones that were there, I picked Viper, but my true favorite is Batman.

    I didn't put Batman or Superman for a couple of reasons:
    1) Specific Batman/Superman names (like Batman: The Ride or Superman Krypton Coaster) are usually given to one ride and its clones/near clones... so it isn't really a generic name.
    2) They aren't names original by SF... they're from DC Comics.

    Oh, and BTW, i think Ninja is the coolest name... it has an awesome logo and slogan too (the coaster with a black belt)!

    None of the above. The names have been used so widely that they fail to register as "cool" any longer.
    Nothing like a big woodie first thing in the morning and before going to bed at night.
