Anybody ridden Dragon Kahn?

This ride look awsome, sort of similar to Kumba. I think it also has the most inversions with 8. Has anyone ridden it? How is it?

Dragon Kahn is one of the roller coasters featured in
"World's Greatest Roller Coaster Thrills: in 3d"
Also I believe Winter 2000 "Roller Coaster" (published by ACE) Mag has some pics of it.

I might be able to visit Port Aventura in a couple of weeks. Is the park open this time of year? I will be in Barcelona, and I would love to visit the park.

Don't forget it has a straight first drop, as opposed to Kumba's (horribly boring) curved drop. There are a few different twists and turns in there as well, but the same inversions in the same order as on Kumba, with one extra vertical loop after the blocks.

My Dad rode it when he was out there, he said that it was very smooth, but it left him light-headed.

I dont know about Kumba, but you really feel the ride on DK. Usually i can ride coasters umpteen times before i have to stop, but after 9 rides on DK in a row i really decided to get out. Especially the second part is incredibly intense. The turnaround between the two corks caused some hard headbanging in the seat i was on. That coaster really delivers a wonderful experience, but that additional loop after the block was a little bit too much. Since the block didnt slow down the train a bit, and the drop from the block is very steep, the gs are very high. A good bunny or a helix would have been better imo.

Port Aventura will be open from 17 March. Over a flew years, this park will be even bigger than IOA!!. It will also get a second park. Universal Studios. (better than Orlando)

There are about 100 parks that are bigger than IOA. As for better...hmmm, can't think of any.

Also, a park being better than Universal Studios Orlando won't be too tough a task. They have all of like four good attractions.
