Dragon Slayer is a steel 4th dimension roller coaster at Adventureland in Altoona, Iowa, USA. It opened in 2021 as a replacement to Dragon, the park's Hopkins looping coaster that closed in 2019 and is a 4D Free Spin manufactured by S&S Sansei Technologies.
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.
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. Track installation was completed in November.
Single car trains. Riders are arranged 4 across in 2 rows for a total of 8 riders per car.
