Have you ever ridden DRAGON KHAN and STAMPIDA in PORT AVENTURA, Salou, Spain?

: Have you ever ridden DRAGON KHAN and STAMPIDA
: in PORT AVENTURA, Salou, Spain?

: Yes I've been there on my summer vacation. DK is classic B&M, a distant cousin of BGT's Kumba with a beautiful red track, eight loops and a stright first drop thats quite unusual for a B&M looper (most have a spiral drop). Stampida is a beautiful CCI racing woodie that features some nice airtime and pacing, but a couple of unecessary trim breaks (put there not because of the coasters structure but because of a fatality in 1997 that could have easily been prevented if the rider wasn't so foolish) prevents a good ride like Stampida from being a great one. -Wendigo

I've ridden them ,too . 1997 ,before the accident ( no trims on Stampida :-) ).Can't understand why Premier sold this park seeing they're buying a load of property in Europe . Looks like they're interested in Pleasurewood hills in the UK as well !! Here's hoping .
