Okay, but the thing is whether it's Waterloop or Waterloo the pun is still there. It's a pretty obvious reference to Napoleon's last battle, and either way the pun works (my big question is why would someone name a waterslide park Waterloo? Sounds rather depressing to me). The problem is half the references I have say Waterloop and the other half say Waterloo, so again I'm stuck trying to decide which it actually is (the script versions I have say Raging Waters, so that's no help at all). In the movie itself it's hard to tell, although when they leave Deacon it does sound more like they're saying "Waterloo", but in the barroom Ted is either saying "Waterloos" or something, but the end is definitely closed. The battle name isn't known differently in Europe because Waterloo is a place, not just a battle name, so why they would call it Waterloop unless they had some reference material saying that's what it is (or like me they're just mishearing it?) Searches on the internet show that it's really a confusing question because I see people called it both Waterloo *and* Waterloop. Years ago my friends and I debated about this and somehow we came to the conclusion it was Waterloop. In any case, I'm sure we'll resolve the question at some point, but I really appreciate getting everyone's opinion about it so *thank you* for yours! We'll figure it out definitively one of these days! :) Party on!
