Former Paramount Park Name Changes

Kings Dominion already changed two of their ride's names on their webpage, Tomb Raider has become The Crypt:
And Italian Job has become Backlot Stunt Coaster:
But now Carowinds has updated their rides page with a couple changes.

Borg Assimilator will now be called Nighthawk, and Top Gun will be called Flight Deck.

The Crypt is fine with me, Backlot Stunt Coaster is generic but works, Nighthawk is taking the whole -hawk ride thing a teensy bit too far (Thunderhawk, Firehawk, Skyhawk) - but Flight Deck is straight up stoopid sounding.

For an inverted coaster themed (somewhat) to Jets - Flight Deck would probably be at the bottom of anyone's creative list of new names. Oooh well.
