Ninja is far worse. Far worse.

Neither were bad for me since my head was above the restraint.

Ninja was ok, but I genuinely liked Dragon. I rode it a few times.

I personally found Ninja to be a little more "rough", but as a whole, Dragon is quite boring to me.

Yeah I actually enjoyed Dragon on my visit to Adventureland. Forceful, relatively smooth (except for the pre-lift) and quite fun.

Ninja isn't terrible, but I don't enjoy riding it per se.

Adventureland just posted a teaser for their next addition in 2021. https://www.facebook.com/AdventurelandParkIowa/posts/2932958060120893

Along with this post it looks as though Dragon has meet it's demise. It's being disassembled as I type.

Dragon is coming down quickly. The first drop and two loops still remain, as does a bit of the second helix.

Most of the helixes and the brake run have been removed.

I cannot wait to see what they have in store for that plot of land in 2021. It’s quite large and they could fit just about anything but a giga in there. They will be having competition from lost island theme park the year after it opens, so I wonder if it will be something big in order to help compete?

That's an exciting teaser! Glad to see a park moving ahead with 2021 plans despite the uncertainty of this season.

I could definitely see them using the name Dragon Slayer for a new coaster taking over this plot of land.
