InvadR's story is based around war with swords, not tanks. That's why it gets a pass, and that's why I said "modern war" doesn't belong at BGW.

Tempesto can be a flat, if you tip it over.

I dream of seeing Verbolten removed, chunks of its track lying in a scrap yard, where it will no longer bring misery to riders.

I'm not sure why WWI planes and pilots are suddenly off limits?

Der Roto Baron has been a kiddie ride for years.

Like I said, just my opinion. But based on theming alone, even Der Roto Baron seems out of place. But then, so do Churros and having Canadian "New France" in old world Europe.

Confirmed. Following the tradition of Les Frites and O'Tator's, the next restaurant in Germany will be a WW themed waffle house called Luftwaffels! Winking_tongue_out

Natural disasters get a pass.

Look how many coasters/rides are named after hurricanes, tornados, lightning, etc.! Tongue

I dunno I have seen some robust ideas involving a re-theme of the entire park around WWII - European Front. (WCUSA would of course become the War in the Pacific)

Bruh Pompeii was a specific event that killed thousands.

There's still a line, the "too soon" factor. Six Flags Great America, in the Six Flags 2018 announcements, didn't have a name for the giant Larson Loop. Rumor has it they were giving the name a hurricane motif until it was going into the Mardi Gras area. That obviously would have evoked Hurricane Katrina, and on top of being "too soon", Six Flags lost their New Orleans park in that disaster.

Safe to say, nobody here is 2,000+ years old and was around to experience the destruction in Pompeii firsthand.

Speak for yourself; I lost a lot of good friends that day. It's ironic that you all hate the water sprayers featured on the ride, because we sure could have used them when our homes were being consumed by flame.

To a point maybe, but I agree with SLC Headache about the “too soon” factor. As he mentioned, I have a feeling a ride named “Escape from Hurricane Katrina” wouldn’t go over quite as well.

To get us back on track, I have created a thread specifically to discuss appropriate theming.

Thank you Nicole. I was getting tired of being misquoted.

Five times on one page is enough! LOL
