Original layout of Drachenfire?

Thursday, August 23, 2001 9:44 AM
I have numerous pictures of Drachenfire plus an on-ride video of it in action.  However, I've been unable to attain any photos (much less video) of the coaster in it's first form with the corkscrew that was removed.

 

Any ideas or suggestions as to where I could get a hold of any?

Check it out.  It is the ORIGINAL layout.  I rode it 5 times opening week.  Anyway...there you go.

Ok nasai..  I think I'm confused.

 

That's the on ride video that I have.  Is that the original layout or the modified one?  I thought that was the modified one, but I could be wrong.  If that is the original, then I guess I need the modified one.

 

:o)

Original: Mid-course followed by corkscrew followed by cutback

Modified: Corkscrew replaced with long ramp, so midcourse followed by ramp followed by cutback

You have the original.  Don't know where you can get the revamped coaster ride.  Sorry.

Thanks for the info.  I'm realize that I probably won't be able to get an on-ride of it, but I'd still like to see pics of it.  I heard that the removal of the loop was a lousy idea.  Just kinda wanted to see the layout.
