That ride was very fun! I loved it, sometimes it was slow but oh well, the bowtie makes up for it. It takes forever to get up the first hill, resulting in a short drop, lol, great ride though. The first time I went on it, I got lost in the station because I couldn't see, it is that dark! You actually have to work your way down the steps to get on!
I rode that coaster about 13 year ago (I was 15). I remember being very excited when I first saw the ride because it is very long and looks very cool. I also remember being very disappointed after riding it. It has trim brakes all over the place and just crawls through certain sections. The helix was incredibly slow. My dad and I rode it several times just to make sure it was really that bad.
It's been about 15 years since I rode it, but I loved it. Dragon Mountain is a great coaster. It's very long. I remember some long tunnels that are pitch black. They were supposed to theme it with some waterfalls, but it never happened. Anyway, I recommend it if you are in Niagera Falls.
Dragon Mountain was really cool. Havent been on it for a long time, but it's definatly worth checking out. Too bad Marineland doesn't have much more than DM, and a few shows. Hopefully this park will get somthing new, and since it is in the Fall's area, it'd be a popular tourist attraction.
Expoland got rid of one of the stations on Daidarasaurus and hooked the track together so that when the ride was done, you would go up the hill again on the other track set and basically go through the same ride again.
If you look at pic #4, the bowtie, in the far background you can see what MUST be the two vertical loops...that's a lot of track between elements, isn't it? ----------------- rollergator - intent on improving the "guest experience" - coming soon to a park near you
