This is a great classic coaster. Its got all the elements that are needed for a good woodie. From the minute you slowly progress out of the station {the one thing I hate about the ride, it takes so long to get out of the station}you can feel a sense of the chaos about to take place. The lift is one of the quickest Ive been on to, but then again I havent been on to many {5 at the present}.
Theres a small dip after the hill that gives a nice view of the surrounding area. then you make a sharp right go up wards a little bit then fall into complete oblivion. From there hold on cause this babe is gonna take you on the ride of your life. Every dip, drop, and turn punches you with great airtime {close your eyes and put your hands up on the last three bunny hops and see what happens}. Something else that I loved was the final brake run. It forces the train to stop with brute strength. This is a ride that is not afraid to take off its shirt and flex its muscles. This is y i gave this ride a 10. It deserved it.

This coaster is one of the most under-rated coasters Ive been on. This can be blamed on its horrible location. You drive up to this fairy unkept and trashy area, enter a nice arcade and on the other side is a well kept coaster. You get GREAT airtime on this sucker. YOU MUST RIDE IN THE BACK!!! The first drop was great and the rest of the coaster definatly delivered. The final camelbacks seemed to appear out of nowhere and were the most pleasant surprise of the ride. Oh, and anothor plus.......... NO LINE!! However great this woodie proved itsself to be, it was short (but sweet), and the staff were very rude, not to mention the fact that it was overpriced
(get the $10 unlimited ride thing, or else youll get screwed). If youre every in south Florida, get to Boomers and ride this woodie.

This is such a biased review, but I dont care. I operate the DBH, and until I rode Psyclone, there was no better woodie. In fact, Im debating which one is better. The lift hill is quick, and before you know it, you hit the first drop. More airtime than any roller coaster Ive ever been on, except for, maybe, Cyclops at Big Chiefs. Lots of airtime and fun, especially when youre coming through the homestretch of bunny hops. Again, I know this sounds biased because I operate this wooden marvel, but this is my opinion, and if you dont believe me, ride it in the back. DBH is #4 on my list, my #2 woodie. For a better experience, remember to buy the multiple ride pass if youre planning on riding more than once.

It takes this coaster a little while to get going, but eventually it ends up being excellent. I didnt notice much airtime at first, but then the speed increased toward the end, and several hills gave some really good air. Laterals are consistently strong. Interestingly, I discovered that the coaster is not actually owned by Boomers park, but it is run by someone else who uses that part of Boomers property.

it was pretty fun, but the wait for it to go was long and the ride was kinda short.

After reading my review from a few years ago, with a rating of 4, I had to re-review this coaster. I must say, this is a great looking coaster. To me, this is a fairly decent coaster. It has some great airtime, speed, and an awesome drop. The one thing that is lacks is that no one is ever riding it. Other people on a coaster make it a little more exciting. If you can, take a ride on it, get the unlimited pass, and it wont let you down.

Good coaster. A lot of airtime at the end. Load time is slow but for a non-amusement park it was O.K. A little bit on the short side though.

Good solid ride although a bit short. Never a line and the price is right. Some good airtime takes place especially along the final hills.
