About the Ride Info Box

Dragon Slayer is possibly the name of the ride that is being built to replace the Dragon. It will be some kind of ride located on Dragon Island. It is expected to open sometime in 2021.


Haunted House tracks

The queue area was originally built to house a haunted house dark ride acquired from Rirverview Park. On the concrete floor you can still see places where the track was installed, as well as tire marks from where the ride cars used to travel.


The shields you see hanging on the wall in the queue area represent ... Something. But what?

Mirror Maze

The ride exit goes through a small Mirror Maze which was once a larger standalone attraction. If my understanding is correct, there used to be a large mirror maze in the queue building, but it was removed when the Dragon was built. The original maze was from Riverview Park. At the exit, the funhouse style mirrors are likely not the type of "mirror maze" that was there. Anyone have photos?
