Iron Dragon

Eight shock absorbers, which appear to be off-the-shelf automotive parts that are painted grey, are installed at the back of each car.  They are used to dampen each car's side-to-side swinging motions.

Iron Dragon is one of the six Arrow Dynamics suspended coasters that was built with two chain lift hills.  After leaving the station, the train is hoisted up the first lift hill.  The coaster's first half occurs on a wooded island.  After leaving the second lift hill, the train passes through the coaster's second half as it twists over the lagoon.
