As long as we're discussing overused names, here are a few others that don't get many complaints but are quite common.
For point of comparison, there are 6 coasters in the world bearing the name Goliath.
- Python (9)
- Viper (11)
- Montanya Russa (14)
- Coaster (22)
- Jet Star (21)
- Jet Coaster (36)
- Cyclone (44)
- Roller Coaster (129)
Also, don't forget Superman, which is the name of several completely different layouts (and can even pertain to drop towers, oh noez!), and goes against exactly the point TexasCyclone96 made with the Batman-themed clones.
I realize my Space/Big Thunder analogy probably wasn't the best, but my point was that it's Disney, which will illicit fewer complaints than anything Six Flags for no reason other than, well, it's Disney, and not Six Flags.
But really, Ryan's analogy is even better--especially the Vipers, Pythons and Cyclones. Whereas most of the others are either generic names (Montaña Russa/Roller Coaster/Coaster) or names for the specific manufacturer's model (Jet Star, Jet Coaster, and even Wildcat, Wild Mouse, etc.), the others are names that imply theme (snake or storm) and span the gamut of types and layouts, as Tyler and TexasCyclone96 point out as being a "problem" with the six Goliaths.
This is exactly the kind of thing that I find irksome about the enthusiast mentality that I mention so often. It's like they forget that parks are businesses that exist to make money, and should rather be catering to the .001% of the patrons that travel the world specifically to ride rolley-coasters and, for some reason, dwell on insignificant crap like six coasters nowhere near each other all having the same name.
