Same, dueling dragons is on the top of my "rides that I will never get to ride" list.
Your center for the wrong opinions...

Dueling Dragons is now #1 on my list of favorite defunct coasters, interestingly enough, bumping down another coaster with a "dragon" theme, "Drachen Fire". Such a shame... Such a pity... :(

I had to do a double take when I first saw this. I must still be in denial that my two favorite inverts in Florida (yes, I've been on Montu, cry about it) are just... nonexistent now. I miss you, guys. May you duel in heaven. :cry:

^ Yeah, I mean, I have to be honest, the first time I ever saw this amazing sight right here...

If someone were to have said to me "You know, in about 15 years this will be the world's first defunct B&M" there is no way in hell I would have ever believed them. *sigh* I really hope Universal knows what they are doing...

Not very sure Universal knows what they're doing, but alas...


This is my first time at Halloween Horror Nights. Is fast pass recommended? We want to do all the rides open a good number of times, the haunted houses are a lesser priority. We will likely not do this again so this is our only chance. Whadya think? We figured it'll be packed, maybe most will crowd the houses and not the rides but I've never been to this event so no idea
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Fury 325, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, Maverick, Goliath (SFoG), I305, Lightning Run
Top 10 Wood: Voyage, Phoenix, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Racer, Grizzly (KD), Legend, Raven, Beast

Yes, get the Express Pass. I was at the event last night and the lines for the mazes were 45-60 minutes up until the last hour of the night. Rip Ride Rockit was about 75 minutes most of the night. If you don't get express passes you won't be getting on much especially now that it's getting close to Halloween. If you go the nights AFTER Halloween it won't be as bad but I'd still recommend express passes.

Sounds like Universal is planning some creepy Big Brother/Minority Report style facial tracking
