I'm not surprised. How can you top Alpengeist and Apollo's Chariot?

According to posts on RRC by BGW insiders, this is just a retheming of the Hastings (England) area of the park.

Well, I'm dissapointed. I hope this isn't another year of rediculous Drachen Fire rumors without any official word from the park. I mean, can we go just one week without having to hear that this once great coaster is being moved or torn down?

Acctually,I heard somewhere that if they did re-open DF that they would not advertise it as a new ride,just open it like it was never closed...

On www.rcdb.com, they list Drachen Fire as costing $4 million to make.

Looking for a profit, eh? Good luck ... for a used coaster that's (so they say) a lawsuit-magnet.

Anyone know what the small attractions will be? They really need to add to their flat rides package.
