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

Elements

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

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