I voted for SFA. I feel like 'chaos coaster' ruins the other two names and looping dragon isn't as awful as i thought when it was announced, but bourbon street fireball just stands out to me.

^ I agree. Bourbon Street Fireball has a nice ring to it, and might actually be a good name for a real, standout coaster. With all the reused names in the chain for coasters, I almost wish they (SFA is my home park) saved the name for something more unique. At least it doesn't have "coaster" in its name!

After reading these other names i would vote for out Looping Dragon. It says what it is, Its a loop and i have no problem with the dragon theme. I suppose calling something a chaos coaster might bring some excitement but I don't think there is much chaos to be had.  

 

Those kids sure do get around though.

I like the joker theme. These rides remind me of carnivals and as a huge batman nerd it just fits perfect IMO

besides surrounding theme, Looping dragon is a cool name but fits more with a looping coaster like lighting loops, and that gets me thinking...

I like Bourbon Street Fireball the most- it's a really good name for Six Flags standards. I'd pick Looping Dragon for second best, and Dare Devil Chaos last since it sounds more like a name for a Knex model coaster set than a real ride.

Six Flags, where every moment is a Great Adventure!

^ I agree with the knex comment lol

I actually would've like it to be named lightning loop, and since it's going to be placed near the rolling thunder memorial that whole area could've paid homage to past rides. What's that? A whole new area called "Great Adventure History"? :P wishful thinking

Bourbon street fireball

 

probaly because they didn't use "COASTER" in the name

 

and because they didnt really market it like a coaster

Bourbon Street Fireball has the most unique name out of all the additions this year.

You nailed that point Matt!  That is being promoted as a coaster... definitely a coaster!

What about RCDB not listing as a coaster?  That's what I would go by...

 

But I don't really care if it is or not.  Its an added feature for the park we needed

Looping Dragon still gives me shivers. Thank goodness we discarded that awful name

Cedar Point and Valleyfair listed their Zamperla Skaters as Coasters.

 

 

I like El Diablo

At first I liked Bourbon Street Fire Ball but once Great Adventure switched the name to El Diablo to me that was the coolest and the name fit well with that area.
