Um yeah, about that ride. When considering naming a carnival ride, I would probably avoid the name “The Zyklon” as Zyklon B was the name of the gas used by the Nazis to kill millions of Jews during the Holocaust. I’m just saying! Sure it is also German for cyclone but many South Florida residents don’t see it that way. One Holocaust survivor said “Of all the names in the world, why do they need to name rides that? It’s upsetting to me to come across that, as a survivor. I lost my whole family in the gas chambers, particularly in Auschwitz.”
That word isn’t new to controversy in the US, a few years back a company tried to trademark the name Zyklon for appliances they were selling, which included gas ovens.
OMG, look what Cyclone Yasi’s dragged in…Dear god, I hope those winds don’t pick up his tower and hurl it out to sea!
No wait there’s more ….
