I don't see why either Intimidator or Afterburn would be rethemed.
People in this thread have mentioned Nascar theme and the Charlotte area. What is more quintessentially Charlotte area and Nascar than Dale Earnhardt? A change is unnecessary and dumb as it is a good theme, popular with the region and hometown, great color scheme that contrasts Fury's, and would cost money and only serve to piss off patrons.
Intimidator 305 should be rethemed. The color scheme looks like a happy meal box. In addition, Dale Earnhardt has nothing to do with the VA area other than annual races in the past. IMO, the license for I-305 is a waste unless it was a package deal for Cedar Fair. Cedar Fair should keep I-305 color scheme, get a clown car facade for the front cars and rename it McIntaminator. I'm already lovin' it.
Afterburn is fine. The colors are great. It could use more theming, but that is true of all the rides in the park. Perhaps that IS the takeaway...improve the themes we have!
