Dragon Khan is a steel roller coaster located at PortAventura Park in Salou, Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain. It was manufactured by Bolliger & Mabillard.

When it opened, Dragon Khan broke the record for the most inversions on one ride, with 8. The record was subsequently broken by Colossus at Thorpe Park, which has 10 inversions.

The theme for this ride is based on Chinese mythology: the Dragon Khan was the reincarnated spirit of the evil Prince Hu of Beijing. His fury was unleashed each time a human dared to climb atop his back.
