    I just figured that Disney was expanding advertisement locations for their DVC program.

    "America's fastest multi-launch coaster" Well...for like a year at least :lol:

    But seriously that's a great name, and a very exciting announcement. Will definitely get down there for that sometime next year

    Wondering why they didn’t show more of the coaster itself.

    Id assume they're still finalizing details on track layout but not too sure. That promo sold me on the ride however.

    Loving the new coaster name, much better than InvadR & Tempesto. Also liking the elements based on The Roman Gods. May have to make a trip back up there next year to my old stomping grounds and where I use to work.

    They would never have started pouring footer if the layout wasn't complete. I just get the impression they decided they didn't need a full ride through animation yet. They've blow the budget for that on the teasers, banners and costumes...

    This is gonna be a great addition to an already strong park. And these Intamin Shuttles look like a ton of fun, and pretty unique. Seems like a slam dunk!

    It became super rough, to the point where most people didn't want to ride it.

    It was super rough in 97, because it was super rough when it opened in '92. @SkiBum either got lucky or is misremembering haha

    Well, it was made by Arrow and there is a reason why I won't ride Vortex (another Arrow coaster).

    I was also 22 years younger and could take the beatings more easily. I would probably have a FAR different point of view if I was riding it today.

    Another problem with Drachen Fire was that not many people went back to that area to ride it. It’ll be interesting to see what they do to get people back there with this.
