Has anyone else noticed the loud ringing sound every time the ride makes a right turn? It has shown up in every POV too...anyone know what it could be?

The comments at the ride given by both coaster experts and rookies are really good.

The coaster is really fantastic. There was aquafun, there were amazing wrong-banked turns, there was chaos twice as chaotic as Troy, there was some fun theming and I was there.

Almost as good as Troy. More chaos, less Airtime.

Take a look at his little gay hand.

No, you're just a lovely dragon.

The swamp is coming...

The dragon does follow the movement of the trains during the entire ride. Even when you are on the lifthill he is already trying to scare you away with his angry face and smoking nostrils. Awesome interaction!

Is the Dragon something you can clearly see from many points on the ride?

Has anyone ridden both? Is there any major difference between the two?

Thanks

There is no major difference between the two... Just a different but similar layout. Possibly the effects (flames and waterbombs) are different for each coaster too, I don't know exactly.

I only paid attention while in Fire, and I have to admit the Dragon is hardly noticably except for when on the lifthill...

New at Efteling in 2011: Ravelin

Postby Trumple » Thu Jul 01, 2010 1:51 pm

George and the Dragon, the newest woody of GCI, opened in the Efteling today. Time to move on to the next project of the Efteling: Ravelin, old Dutch; Raveleijn. Ravelin will be themed as a compact, flourishing, medieval city. The backside of the building, facing towards the park's parking lot and a public road, will be themed as a majestic renaissance building. There will be a restaurant and multiple offices inside the building. The exterior of the building will be the decor for a huge, expensive, new park show. Around the central building they will build a themed grandstand.

The opening is scheduled for spring 2011. The project costs 30 million euros, approximately 38 million US dollars.

Mean Streak was real good for that. I think it has to do with the amount, or lack thereof, grease on the tack. It is metal on metal squealing that you hear.
