This ride seems very overshadowed by Shambala now and rather rough for a B&M.

Looks to have a great headchopper with one of Shambala's supports on the first drop

I defiantly agree that Dragon Khan is extremely over shadowed by Shambhala. And as this coaster is 17 years old, I think it was guaranteed to get a bit rough.

Yea, it is. The only problem with some B&M Coasters is that they don't age well.
