My Top 5 Thrill Rides In Florida- Dragon Challenge

Hi all,

Final day of my top 5 thrill rides in Florida. Monday featured the music loving Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios, Tuesday’s post was all about the unique riding experience of Manta at SeaWorld, Wednesday’s Coaster was the scream inducing Sheikra at Busch Gardens and Thrusday belonged to the big, green speed machine known as the Incredible Hulk Ride at Islands of Adventure.

Today’s ride is actually two rides… Dragon Challenge at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.

Dragon Challenge at Wizarding World of Harry Potter

The dragon challenge at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter places you right in the middle of the tri-wizard tournament.

Are you brave enough to ride one of the most ferocious dragons in the Wizarding World? Either the Chinese Fireball or the Hungarian Horntail!

Of course the dragons don’t want you on their backs, so they will try and throw you off by looping the loop, flying toward walls at break neck speeds and at one point playing chicken with each other.

The Dragon Challenge is the only dual inverted roller coaster in the World; each Dragon gives the rider a completely unique riding experience.

Roller Coaster Information

The Height Requirement for both Dragons on the Dragon Challenge is 54?

Chinese Fireball

Height: 125 ft (38.1 m)

Drop: 115 ft (35.1 m)

Wizarding Tip – For the best ride experience try and get a front row seat when riding the Hungarian Horntail however for the Chinese Fireball try and get seats on the back row, the G-Force is increased at the back!

Wizarding Fact – When the trains are loaded, they are weighed as they are being dispatched in order to properly time the near-miss points.

The rides main talking point is the near miss part of the ride as competitors come within 18 inches of each other. offer great rates of Florida attraction tickets the Orlando Flex Ticket or the Universal bonus tickets get you entry in to Universal Islands of Adventure for up to 14 days.
