Dragon Challenge was dueling today, hopefully this cheers some of you up. Had a few friends go up for a day and it was dueling the whole time they were there. :p

I rode it just before closing today and it wasn't dueling. Back row on Fire is still a kick A$$ ride, though!

Friends were there from 10-2 and it was dueling fine for them. Not sure if they've only been doing for short periods of time a day, but they definitely said it was dueling.

I don't think I'll miss it that much. They're still both great rides

My guess is they were probably slowing one train down on the lift hill, so they didn't synch up during the course. I think some people are just confusing that with it actually dueling. More than once last week they had both trains leave the station a second or two apart, only to have one stop half way up the lift hill for about 10 seconds.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Thats pretty unfortunate that they dont duel anymore. Back in the day when I went to IOA, it was one of my favorite rides, and is still pretty unmique. As for what hit the victims, as a ride operator for the past six years I'm wondering what the loose item policy is. The timing BEGS for some scandal or wallet to fly out and hit the other person as the trains fling by each other....
