How much can be left to the imagination? The Dueling Dragons ride at IOA seems to be a freqents whipping pole on this forum, with many dismissing the ride itself as "unthemed." I would respectfully dissagree with this, as the ride does have a basic storyline. However, it does leave almost all of the details of that storyline to the imagination. Their can be no doubt that this severly hampers the story. However, in any roller coaster, you are forced to make certain concessions to reality, and when you wish to simulate flying, the consessions must be even greater, unless you are working with a huge budget. This raises the question of how much can be left to the imagination without severly hampering the story.

To explore this, I propose this theoretical situtation:

For a clone of IOA in some different location, Universal Creative is changing Dueling Dragons in response to complaints of it being under-themed. However, this goal is accompanied by only a modest increase in budget (i.e. putting the ride in a huge show building is not an option.) The basic ride system, of two suspended roller coasters, is to remain unchaged, and only minor changes to the track design are allowable. Given these restrictions, is it possible to significently improve the ride, and if so how?
