Iron Dragon (1987)

Cedar Point

Sandusky, Ohio

Text excerpt from Press Release 008 P/Distributed 1994

The Iron Dragon simulates flight as its bright blue cars, suspended under its red track, sway side to side with the forces of gravity. Riders skim above treetops and swoop over a misty lagoon. A giant pretzel-knot loop over water creates an exciting finale. The Iron Dragon gave more than 1.9 million rides in 1993 and has been challenged by more than 13.5 millions riders since it's 1987 debut (through the 1993 season).
