Yesterday during a block shutdown the "ahhh you survived" played over and over again and I was in hysterics... :P Anyway I love Fury and believe it to be the UK's second best steel rollercoaster. It has a few drawbacks such as the small size of the car meaning slightly poor legroom but I think the ride experience more then makes up for it. Very good ride in the face of simple layouts such as Stealth, Colossus, Rita and Air. :P

I do like fury but I think its very over hyped and majorly depends on the weight of your car as to if you get a good or crap ride, that and I cant think of a trip to chessington where I havent seen it break down atleast once! Personally would much rather a ride on rattlesnake!

I find it interesting how reliability of Fury is hugely considered in your opinion of the ride whereas it is practically ignored when you think of Thorpe :P Anywho there isn't a "bad" ride on Fury, just some that are not as spinny as others. The foolproof way of getting a good start is to put all the weight on the back then lean to the right. It doesn't necessarily mean the parts after Lift 2 will be spinny but you have a better chance.

I think dragons fury at chessington is a great coaster because sometimes you get great spins and I agree about the leg room there isnt mush in the cars but still a great ride.

Its a spinning wild mouse not a sofa. The cars are small because of the track gauge.. any bigger and there would be to much stress of the track.

TP Dan. I have ridden Winjas, both Force and Fear and they are a lot better than Dragon's Fury. But the Chessie version is better than Spinball and Whirlwind at Camelot.Ahhh you survived, pleeease, exit to the left :)

It has kind of ended. The logos on the cars were removed about a season ago, although I can't remember if there are still logos on the entrance sign.

Stone me, I better take a closer look at the cars when I'm next there then! I'm sure the logo at the entrance has gone. And I'm sure it's still on the stone dragon in the queue (well that would be hard to rub that off the dragon).

Well that's in breach of contract then!

Theme Park Bloke who cares...! If Chessington can't be bothered or can't remove some of the Skips logos for any reason then I don't think Skips will give a toss, Skips are technically getting FREE advertisements!

I'm not too sure any company would mind getting free advertisement though, even if they did fall out. And it was 2006 they got removed, not 2004.
