Dueling Dragons now "Dragon Challange" and The Flying Unicorn now "Flight of the Hippogriff" will be closed until further notice to have the themes retro fitted to fit into the Harry Potter section of the park. No word on when the rides will re-open, I would estimate in a couple of weeks.

"Dragon Challenge" WTF?!?!?! I'm going there next week! That is the most retarded name of a ride I have ever heard... All the more reason for me to go to Busch Gardens instead.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

Closed? Yes
Demolished? No
They'd better not demolish Dueling Dragons anytime soon

It won't be demolished. Neither of them will. And before people start saying anything, don't just a song by its intro. Dragons is rumored to have a repainting, but a re-theming is already taking place.

YA,

Why the hell are they theming everything around Harry Potter NOW, anyways? The craze is nearly over.

Hey, let's get the kid who practically lives near Orlando's saying!

Dueling Dragons is officially no longer called that. Right before it made it's official close, its original exit became the temporary entrance. The temp. queue utilized the use of a bridge as well as going through the construction area.

DO NOT VISIT IoA AT THE MOMENT.

Wait until the official opening of Harry Potter World. You will be MUCH more satisfied if you do.

Dragon Challenge gets its name from the Goblet of Fire; which the triwizard cup's (or whatever it's called) first challenge was.
Oh, were you expecting something here?

Don't worry, Mikey. I know you have more knowledge than me about the Universal parks, but for the other members here, they need a little more guidance.
