The Dragon roller coaster, one of Legoland Dubai’s most anticipated attractions, is the first ride to be installed at Dubai Parks and Resorts.

Taking visitors on an interactive journey of lego animation, the ride weaves through the Legoland Castle, before twisting and turning onto a fun-filled outdoor track.

“The Dragon is a must-ride highlight for children and parents and a key attraction at every Legoland Park around the world. It’s also the park’s biggest ride at 16 metres high and reaching speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour,” commented Siegfried Boerst, general manager of Legoland Dubai.

“We are very excited that the first roller coaster has finally reached Dubai Parks and Resorts. More than 50% of the ride engineering and manufacturing across all of the theme parks has been completed and ride components such as Legoland’s Dragon ride have started arriving on site for installation. So this is now obviously a very exciting stage in the destination’s journey to completion,” said Stanford Pinto, chief parks operations officer of Dubai Parks and Resorts.

The Dragon roller coaster forms the centerpiece of the park’s Lego Kingdom area, home to the Legoland Castle and many other attractions for the whole family.

Legoland Dubai will feature six themed areas and over 40 interactive rides, shows and attractions and 15,000 Lego model structures made from more than 60 million Lego bricks.

The Dragon roller coaster was manufactured, and is being assembled, by Zierer Rides and overseen by construction firm Hill International.

Dubai Parks and Resorts is a multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination set to open in October 2016, comprising three theme parks - motiongate Dubai, Bollywood Parks Dubai and Legoland Dubai, together with Legoland Water Park.
