Posts on this site and on URC say that the ride has been taken off the auction block. I've read (not confirmed) that Morgan is looking at it, possibly retracking it like PR. After OL:FOF got a new lease on life (Proof of Life after Death?), I think headbangers throughout the land are getting at least another look. With new track and/or new trains, NO coasters need be destroyed anymore...

please say they aren't looking at the possibility of turning drachen fire into a hyper coaster. that ride is one of the finest arrow multi- loopers ever built.if they can re-open it I would love to see it run in it's original layout.with apollo's chairiot up and running I doubt that they will turn it into a hyper coaster.new trains would be nice if thats what it takes to get it running though.does morgan make looping style trains?
I know for a fact that Arrow was waiting to see how successful Phantom's Revenge would turn out before they would let Morgan do anything with Drachen Fire.
Now that we all know how much of a hit PR is, I think Drachen Fire might see some action pretty soon. I'm guessing Morgan would retrack Drachen Fire, but they haven't worked with looping coasters have they?
Most talk I have heard here in Williamsburg hints at simply switching trains for the 2002 season. I don't know the reliability of all the sources, but I have heard that BGW has already contracted for the new trains and is just waiting for the off-season for the eagles to move and begin testing for next year. I hope it is true.
