I was not the biggest fan of Dragon Fire. It had nothing to do with the ride being rough, as it is surprisingly smooth. Rather the layout is pretty dull and forceless in my opinion. I typically look forward to the first drop on these Arrow loopers as they consistently deliver good burst of ejector air. However, the drop on Dragon Fire is not nearly steep enough to achieve this. While the two vertical loops are fast and pretty thrilling, the ride fizzles out from there. The counterclockwise corkscrews are noteworthy, they are really slow, and the same can be said about the final helix. Definitely feel free to hop aboard Dragon Fire since it is comfortable, but do not expect much of a ride.

The Dragon Fire is one of the smoother Arrow "custom looping coasters" I have rode. The park has done an excellent job maintaining this ride, and while a few sections of the ride are a bit rough, it has more less always been this way, and is in great condition for its age. While it may not be the most thrilling ride in the park, it's worth noting that it doesn't need to be. Many amusement parks demolish rides like this to make way for the bigger coasters, and I feel that creates a disadvantage for the younger (or older/less extreme) visitors that enjoy rides bigger than the kids rides, but not as intense as some of the more extreme attractions. Dragon Fire would fit into this category very well in my opinion. It's a great warm-up ride for the more adventurous demographic, and a great introduction coaster to less experienced riders. In my opinion, this is one of the most well rounded rides at the park.

A good ride. Always worth a reride since it is a walk-on, but it is nowhere near this park&#39.s best ride.

Wasn&#39.t expecting this, but Dragon Fire has flew clear to the very bottom of my coaster list. Never on a coaster have I felt more abused or uncomfortable than on Dragon Fire. I usually don&#39.t like to base a review only on roughness, but all the elements were common stuff anyway, nothing exciting at all. I guess for any Arrow buff, the corkscrews rotate the opposite direction they do on all the rest, but perhaps Arrow should have stuck to the standard….it may have been a bit smoother. I remember looking at the ride and seeing all the straight track and &quot.normal&quot. elements, and I thought this ride would be decent. I know the coaster&#39.s reputation isn&#39.t this bad, and I probably just caught it on a bad day, but me and my friend agreed our one ride was appauling.

Very mediocre coaster in my opinion. The one train operation was certainly annoying, but it had no line when I went so it wasnt too big of a deal. Well, the first drop definitely was the highlight since it actually gave some air in the back, and the following two loops were actually smooth, but they were pretty tame. Afterwards came two slow, but painful corkscrews and then a helix that was unbelievably smooth thanks to how slow the train was going through it. Just a pretty dull coaster that really fails to have any sort of intensity or thrills.

Dragon Fire wasnt that bad, but it wasnt really good either. The first drop was decent and there was a good pop of air in the back. Also, the two vertical loops were very smooth, but pretty weak and slow. After that came two rough corkscrews and then a very slow and forceless helix thanks to the brake run.

APPEARANCE-8 Definately the highlight of this ride. It looks very nice, has a good line, and is on some good land. CAPACITY-4 slightly below average. the park was pretty busy, but most rides were running only one train. I thought that only happened at SF, or you would think that when reading coaster sites. RIDE QUALITY-2 Boring and mildy bumpy in spots. Mainly it is just boring. FUN-4 Some total piece of trash lost his hat after telling the op it would be fine. That is what scored the ride an extra fun point. IMO 90% of these Arrow loopers should be scrapped. RERIDE-2 Very unlikely, but this ride is still better then a couple other coasters at the park. OVERALL-22 AVG-4.4 I will go 4 because it really only looked nice.

This ride is good if you need a break from line ups, but otherwise it is a boring coaster that is a little rough in spots.

Cedar Fair has really fixed dragon Fire up. Its quite an attractive ride now with bright yellow and new coats of green paint. Theyve also fixed up the cars putting new seat belts in and theyve also made the really smooth compared to what it used to be. Especially on the corkscrews. Dragon fire has always been a really great coaster though. Its quite short with a 78 foot drop then double loop then a banked turn and double corkscrew then a helix. The ride is very comfortable too. And almost always a walk on. Its very fun and quite thrilling. My views have really changed on this ride now that cedar fair fixed it up. Its a great ride and you should definitely check it out if your at the park.
