Dueling Dragons Lost Their Dragons

This past week the iconic red and blue (fire and ice) dragon statues at the entrance to Dueling Dragons at Islands of Adventure were removed.

As we well know half of the Lost Continent section of the park is being removed for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, due to open in early 2010. The coasters are still open, but a temporary entrance has been created from the Jurassic Park side of the area.

OrlandoRocks has a great photo gallery of recent pictures of the work going on at Islands of Adventure.

The Harry Potter project will be awesome, no doubt, but I've already made it clear how I feel about the loss of half of the Lost Continent.

That is so strange. I have never been there, but I do know that they are iconic of that ride. I would hope and think that we might see them again some day on something new. But who knows? It would be really cool and funny if they were next on ebay.
