Dauling Dragon is a wooden racing roller coaster located at Happy Valley, in Hongshan, Wuhan, Hubei, China. The ride is China's third wooden roller coaster and China's first racing wooden coaster. It was designed by The Gravity Group, LLC and built by Martin & Vleminckx.

Design[edit | edit source]

Dauling Dragon is the first roller coaster to feature the high five element, in which riders are banked ninety degrees, completely opposite each other at the top of the hill.

Trains[edit | edit source]

The ride's trains were manufactured by Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters. There are 4 trains with 6 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train. When the coaster was first announced, it was planned to use Gravity Group's new Timberliner trains.
