History

On May 17, 2020, Adventureland posted a cryptic teaser onto their Instagram page that sparked rumors of a replacement for Dragon. These rumors were backed up by the removal of Dragon that was very clearly taking place.[1]

On May 20, 2020, the park confirmed the ride's name to be Dragon Slayer.

In June 2020, track and supports began arriving on site, and on June 24, 2020, Adventureland officially confirmed that the ride would be an S&S Sansei Technologies 4D Free Spin.[2] Track installation was completed in November.[3]

Dragon Slayer began testing in March 2021.[4] The ride was planned to open in June.[5] Eventually, this was pushed forward to May 29.[6]
