Steel Dragon @ Waldameer Park

Ok, so this is not about the Jumbo Jet or even the lost coaster, however every coaster could become a lost coaster. This is a great coaster called the Steel Dragon at Waldameer Park and it could be someone’s first ride. The ride that gets them hooked on roller coasters and thrill rides, then one day 35 years later they wonder “Hey what happened to the Steel Dragon”? Just like I thought about my first coaster ride on the Jumbo Jet at CP back in 1974… the lost coaster. Let’s Ride!

The train cars are designed to look like turtle shells, but are virtually identical design wise to this ride.
