Dragon Fyre is a steel roller coaster located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada.

History

Dragon Fyre with Leviathan overhead

The roller coaster is one of four which opened with Canada's Wonderland in 1981. It was named "Dragon Fyre" until it was changed to Dragon Fire for the 1997 season.[1] For the 2019 season, several other attractions in the Medieval Faire area had their original names restored, including Dragon Fire.[2]

Leviathan, opened in 2012, passes over Dragon Fyre. At a height of 93.3 metres, Leviathan's first drop is 70 metres taller than Dragon Fyre.[3]

Design

Elements

Since the removal of Drachen Fire from Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Dragon Fyre is the only Arrow Dynamics coaster in existence to have counter-clockwise turning corkscrews.[1]

Color scheme

Green track with yellow rails and purple supports. The supports used to be brown, but where repainted in 2005.

Trains

2 trains with 7 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows, for a total of 28 riders per train. Dragon Fyre originally had three trains. For the 1987 season, one was transferred to the newly built Bat, a Vekoma Boomerang which uses the same track system as Dragon Fyre.[1]
