Fodor's Review

On this tandem roller coaster the Chinese Fireball and Hungarian Horntail rocket you in a half-mile, screaming snap-crackle-pop ride along the rails. In the line watch for iconic elements from the Tri-Wizard Tournament, but when you get hung up in your seat (you're suspended beneath the track) get ready to be launched on one of the park's great rides. Each coaster is on a separate track, and when they rocket out of the station at the same time, it means they'll soon be rocketing towards each other at a combined speed of 120 mph. Making it even more exciting, the coasters are programmed by computer to bring them just feet apart as they blaze through the track. This isn't appropriate for anyone with neck, back, or heart problems or for anyone who is pregnant or suffers from motion sickness. For people with disabilities: Guests using wheelchairs must transfer to a ride vehicle. Make use of Express Pass. It's perfect for teens and adventurous tweens.
