The first time i went to cedar point in 99 iron dragon really caught my eye. after power tower i was looking at it and it really looked cool. its a neat ride to have at a park i think it adds alot to cedar point. it may not be the best but its one of the best park.
Is the Iron Dragon still worth riding? I've never even ridden it before, and I named myself after it! Of course it's still worth riding, if I could just get to it! I might add that the mighty Iron Draggon is very much worth riding as well, but only once or twice is definitely not enough!
I like to ride it right after I have a meal. The coaster is a great way to take a break from the bigger coasters, with usually a small wait. It's fun when you sit in the front with the wind in your face, (until a mufflehead passes by) and watching the neat scenery. It is a very relaxing ride.
Has anyone ever noticed the tight clearances in the pretzel? I was watching trains go through the final pretzel on my trip a couple weeks ago. When the train first enters the pretzel after coming out of the trees and down the hill, it crosses over the lower track section. I swear the guide wheels on the bottom of the cars come within a very short distance of the main pipe on that lower track! Very cool to watch! Freaked my wife out. hehe
I Thought Irion Dragon was alot of fun during the day At night its a difrent storie littel did i know coming from NYC what it would be like at night in the front seat!! lets say it felt like it was hailing bugs! i was covered in them i had to keep my head down with a big infront my face the whole ride. but at day time i love that ride its alot of fun. it lacks a lil spee but what do you want its form the 80's back then coaster dident go 90mph anyways i like it and when i go back im sre to bring everyone on it.
CrystalKat - I got lucky to get on it. I rode it with my friend's little brother. I think I was a bit big for it, but I fit! LOL. Also the Woodstock Express is a nice little coaster. More intense than I thought it would be! hehe.

I would much rather ride any other coaster at the park than Iron Dragon. I've only ridden the ride a handful of times (which was plenty). I see it as lost opportunity to ride another, better, coaster at the park.
