Great coaster! I only had time to ride one and I chose Ice because I was told it had more negative Gs than Fire. And I loooves my negative Gs. I was not disappointed. The only reason this got a 9 instead of a 10 was that I wished it was longer. It was over in no time!

This coaster is a worthy effort, but is way too short. The queuing area is very well done.

I think Ice is better than Fire. The near collisions are felt better on this one.

Decent ride, well themed, especially the queue area. However, the ride is a bit short. But it does bag some pretty mean Gs and the dueling effect just adds to the drama.

A great ride, as with Fire. Ice is not quite as good, but together they combine to be some of the best rides in the world.

I got the chance to ride this beast twice on my recent trip, once in the day up front, once in the early night in the middle. Let me start off my saying that the concept of the dueling Inverts is just incredible, some real creativity on the part of IOA and B&M. Unfortunately, some of our rides didnt produce the best dueling, but still good nonetheless. While I do prefer Fire a bit, Ice is still very good and I prefer some of its elements to the corresponding elements on Fire. First of which is the drop, which twists to the right and then to the left and I loved the lateral movement on the drop. I would have expected an inversion early on, but even without I was still happy because those turns were still quite intense. The zero-G roll on Ice is an awesome example of B&M zero-G rolls. I prefer it to the "airtime" hill of Fire, and the trains create a foot chopper effect with each other which is very cool, especially at night. The one problem that I had with Ice is that I thought there was a bit too much strait track, at least compared to Fire there was more. The cobra roll against the castle was nice, it certainly was a pleasant suprise as far as a scare effect. The dueling inversions of the vertical loop and corkscrew were cool from both rides, and the ride keeps going all the way up to the pre-station brake run. Overall, probably only a 7 without the dueling, but that adds a point to both this and Ice, which is a bit better and will get a 9. Overall, compared to other Inverts, this is just a step ahead of the Batman clones.

I love Dueling Dragons coaster. The line for this ride is the best of any ride in the world. Try to sit in the front so you can see almost hitting the other coaster.

Very good, very VERY good. Three things make this ride better than average: the roll, the WALL, and of course the near-misses with the Fire Dragon. The front row has the best view and is definitely worth the extra wait.

I liked Ice a lot, it was fast, had the heartline roll, and the clever cobra roll. The best part was the turnaround after the drop in my opinion. This one slows down at the end, and thats why its not a ten in my book.

Dueling Dragons was awesome, and I thought that Ice was better than Fire myself, though most people seem to think that Fire is better. I enjoyed Ice because of its extra inversion (cobra roll) and because the near-collision moments seemed better on Ice. Both sides are fast and very smooth. Fire is generally better liked because it is more intense, but i think Ice is actually a more fun ride. Both rides are awesome and should not be missed. The queue is amazing!
