The drop on SFMW's Medusa is complete and looks very similiar to the 1st drop on Dragon Khan. How's the drop on DK? Can I look forward to any decent airtime? With the floorless coaches, should be pretty awesome. Please post any DK opinions if you've ridden it, thx

The only Airtime on Dragon Khan is on the back row as you are going over into the first drop you dont get launched over you just get a lovely gentle float as you are going over I hope to be going back this year as I have not rode it for 3 years.

: it, thx It is a very gentle start, but it is as well quite violent at the end. It is a drop of 45 metres, with a maximum speed of 115Km/h. But the best part of the ride is a very high barrel roll, as well as the eight different kind of inversions.

Pete is pretty much right about DK's first drop, having rode that thing last summer, but I think the reason because you don't get much airtime on the first drop is because of the over-the-shoulder-restraints. If you want airtime on a B&M, ride Apollo's Chariot at BGW. On the plus side of DK, its a great looping coaster with a beautiful red track structure and is a great front seat ride.
