Drachen Fire was a steel multi-looping roller coaster located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. It operated from 1992 to 1998 and was built by Arrow Dynamics.

The ride gained a reputation of being uncomfortable and rough, which led to poor ridership. For this reason, it was closed in 1998 and subsequently listed for sale.[1] It was ultimately demolished in 2001.
