I'm guessing the Harry Potter ride will be more 3d glasses and video screens like the trend for this park has been.

It's the equivalent of ancient warriors sticking the heads of their defeated enemies on spikes in order to send a message. It's Universal's message to coaster enthusiasts.

Don't worry, the clumsy contractors have simply scuffed the track a little when taking it down. It just needs a bit of a touch-up, and we'll be seeing Dragon's Challenge at another park soon, right? RIGHT?!

:cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry:

To be honest as soon as they announced it was closing I knew we'd never see the ride again, even if it had more years in it yet. I think Universal are too narcissistic to let anybody else have it. It says something that now I'm looking to Epcot for my next Orlando coaster credit :lmao:

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!
