It is truly too bad that they are replacing dragon challenge... It's a classic roller coaster that really gave a two in one experience! It may not be the "World's most hardcore and amazing rollar coaster!" But as a whole experience one of the best I've ridden. I don't really know if I want to go back to universal without it. The incoming ride that's replacing it has some big shoes to fill!
When these used to duel together it was one of the most original and iconic coasters ever, they slowly lost their top amongst the best coasters in the world through a name change and the eventual change to a non-duelling coaster. Still, these coasters will forever be missed.
Amazing set of twin roller coasters! You get two options, red or blue (Chinese Fireball or Hungarian Horntail) that you have to decide at some point in the wait line; and both get great speed, G-force, inverted ride and a lot of twists! So much that you have to use a locker to leave your belongings. Trains on both railways start almost simultaneously and at different points in the ride they cross and near meet each other which adds adrenaline. Wait times are excellent also. I entered twice with almost no people in the lines.
Would some other park please build a clone? I rode these back in July, 10+ times on each side. With the removal, I'm really mad at Universal, as these were the 2 best rides in the park by far! Third and fourth best coasters in Orlando, such a tragedy to loose them.
One of the best coasters in Orlando and definitely the best one in Universal Resort. It was even better when it use to duel. So sad that it is being destroyed and taken to the scrap yard after September 4, 2017. The coaster still has many years of life left in it. This coaster is what distinguished Universal from Disney World. Too bad Universal is try to be too much like Disney and is losing the thrill seeking audience that it once dominated. I guess Seaworld and Busch Gardens will take up the slack now.
