Cedar Point Rides: Iron Dragon

Iron Dragon

Iron Dragon Iron Dragon is a whole lot of fun. There really isn't any other way to describe suspended flying through trees, over water, and through mist. The coaster starts up a 76 foot hill, tame in comparison to many other Cedar Point coasters, and begins a series of wide turns, hills, and dives, culminating in a large helix over the Cedar Point lagoon. Iron Dragon is unique in that it is a suspended coaster. Instead of its trains sitting on top of the track, they hang from it. This means that every turn allows the cars to move up to the side, making for a very enjoyable ride. Iron Dragon is another coaster that is great for new coaster riders. Iron Dragon possesses the elements of a great coaster, without a terrifying hill.
