Adventureland’s Newest Roller Coaster Opens This Weekend
Rollercoaster enthusiasts from around the Midwest will be in Altoona, Iowa this weekend to ride Iowa's newest ride.
Adventureland Park's officials announced yesterday that the new coaster, The Dragon Slayer, will open Saturday, just in time for Memorial Day weekend.
The ride is a 4D free-spin coaster, which means you'll be swinging, spinning and flipping all over the place.
Footage of a test run was released a few months ago, showing the crazy angles that the coaster boasts.
Dragon Slayer is made by S&S, the company responsible for many of the country's amusement park rides, in parks like:
- Silver Dollar City
- Six Flags Great America
- Six Flags Great Adventure
- Six Flags Fiesta Texas
- Six Flags New England
- Six Flags Over Texas
- Action Park
- Cedar Point
- Worlds of Fun

Adventureland opens at 10am this weekend, and general admission is $50.
The Dragon Slayer is replacing the Dragon, but officials said the loops of the old track will stay up for a short time as an homage.
