^ Why? They can't do much better. Look at the names Cedar Fair has come up with in the past. "Drop Tower", "Boo Blasters on Boo Hill", "Backlot Stunt Coaster"... should I continue?

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.

You forgot "Flight Deck", "Time Warp", and "WindSeeker"!

I always thought "The Crypt" was pretty bad. Anyway, did everyone stop caring about Dinosaurs Alive? I know I did :|

While I admire CP's efforts to include the GP in the naming process--Dragster H20? No offense to its creator, but that has to be one of the worst--and most Roller Coaster Tycoon-ish--names I've heard in a while... I'm sincerely hoping that, like most other Soak City slides, the slide's name won't be prominently featured anywhere. I blame the P&D department for even letting this name get on the ballot!

Planning & Design has nothing to do with the naming, that falls under the Marketing Department at Cedar Point. Especially in this case. Trust me, those in P&D would not have picked that name if it were up to them.

I actually want to see how Cedar Point will go about with this (theming, marketing, etc.).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

My guess for theming: none. Perhaps the sign or a finish line.

"Dragster H2O" is a pretty sad name. I remember about 2 weeks ago they posted a status saying "What should we name our new slide?". Some of the responses were terrible: "extreme aqua? but with a really big X" "Coolangata" "Mat Racer".
The better responses: "Fallopian Tubes" "The Glory Holes" "Hydroseeker" "Matersaurs Alive"

Bravo!
But seriously Dragster H20 is (In my opinion) even worse than what Cedar Fair could've done, unless they named the slide "Slide"
