Coaster Acronyms: TTD is the New LOL

November 29, 2011
Coaster Acronyms are used in the same way as any other acronyms are, to say the abbreviated name of something. For example, it is easier to write “idk” than to write “I don’t know” or like how “lol” is easier to say than “laugh out loud”. Here is a list of coaster acronyms by category:

1. The Six Flags parks are the most used acronyms because all of their names start with Six Flags.
