Wow, that's just... um... well now.
I've been waiting to see what Florida manage to do with their Dragon, and I have to say, it looks naff :|. The models are all standard, same as the other dragons (of course), so no problems there, but the whole thing just looks so sterile. I know I'm biased (rather massively) towards the Windsor version, but you actually (kinda) feel like you're going through a castle, whereas here I don't think you do. It looks fake. It also looked very sparse - there're massive gaps between the models, making it all look rather empty. Windsor's in comparison is bustling with detail. The end sequence with Merlin is also rubbish, and again Windsor's excels here (though it was infinitely better in it's hay-day when the scrim, strobes and roller-shutter worked properly).
I don't get where the lead-out section is so, so damn slow. It kills the flow of the ride and story - Merlin is supposed to 'magic' you to safety away from the Dragon, so as soon as you see him in Windsor you speed up, fly through the (now SBNO) roller shutter, and up the lift hill. In Florida's, Merlin 'magics' you, and... you trundle along, as if nothing's happened.
As for the coaster itself, meh. It's surprisingly noisy in the dark section, and the view from the lift hill is hideous.
Nope, Windsor's definitely wins, even if it is made by the bizarre WGH Transportation Engineering Limited.
(And GRRRR for Florida stealing Windsor's music, The King's Feast :evil:. Written for Windsor (by Andrew McKenna), Windsor had to remove it, and now it's being used elsewhere. Not in the slightest bit surprising, I know, but still massively disheartening :no:)
Edit: Also, I thought our H&S was bad, but my gawd is that thing full-to-bursting with emergency exit signs...
