Well, Norwegian Loop wouldn’t work either, considering the ride is in Sweden!Helix. Has anyone even noticed the helix on Helix?
Change it's name to Norwegian Loop, Corcscrew, Inline Twist or Inside Top Hat. Those are the elements you will remember from it.
ACKTUALLY it is over water /s

'Suspended Looping Coaster Over Water'
...is not over water.
Its sister ride in Mirabilandia is an even worse example. You'd think you're getting a ride with a 90° drop with Divertical, yet it's probably the shallowest drop for a ride of its size. I feel that whoever named it thought they were getting something like Drenched, ordered the wrong thing from the catalogue, but still went with the originally intended name.Maybe not a complete misnomer as it is fast, but Speed at Energylandia. When I think of a water coaster, its speed isn't the defining characteristic I'd choose to name it after.
Kind of a misnomer but more of a generic hate is when a park gets an IP and just names it - (Insert IP here) : The Ride.
Batman The Ride
Saw The Ride
Heidi The Ride
Superman The Ride
Speed The Ride
It's just so lazy and an unoriginal way to incorporate the IP into the name. For example as bad as Mandrill Mayhem is at least it's original and they didn't just name it Jumanji The Ride.
I'd argue that most of those aren't misnomer as they ARE themed to their respective subjects.
However Batman THE Ride might be the exception as the 'the' implies it is the only Batman ride, when there are actually many.
I unironically stopped dreaming of being able to visit theme parks constantly because sometimes it seems like when people ride coasters every day it's not fun anymore and they just start analyzing how elements were not as fun as their #1Enthusiasts...Large numbers of them do not seem very enthusiastic at all.
Top pick must be Matt's in the opening post...Icon...it just isn't.
