TOP GUN --> FLIGHT DECK --> AFTERBURN --> FLIGHT...

Post by steven » Tue Jan 29, 2008 1:35 pm

Top Gun's new name: Afterburn.

UPDATE: Today it's back to Flight Deck, which had been disclosed earlier. Yesterday it was listed as Afterburn.

Ugh, I think Afterburner would be better out of the two names, but its sad to see the Top Gun name leave... Oh well everyone I know is still going to call it Top Gun.

The only people that will call it Flight Deck are people who have never been to the park before and the ride operators who have to say the name of the rides in the spiels. I for one, will never call it Flight Deck. To me, the name sounds like something that doesn't move. Whatever, it is what it is.

Drop Zone and Survivor, you're next!

Drop Tower and ________ coming to a theme park near you.

And they better not touch any of the theming at Top Gun. And while I'm at it, add the theming and freaky queue music back to Drop Zone!

^I do remember the music in line for Drop Zone. First time I rode it, I was waiting in the switchback and the music was making me more and more nervous. Now, it's nothing.
