What is the Longest Roller Coaster in the World?


The Steel Dragon, which opened on August 1, 2000, at Nagashima Spaland in Japan, is an out-and-back roller coaster with a total track length of 2,479 m (8,133 ft). Designed by Morgan Manufacturing of La Selva Beach, California, USA, the ride begins with a fall from a 95-m (311-ft 8-in) lift followed by two further hills and dips. At the top of the third hill there is a maze-like spiral section. The return run has a further eight bumps and seven dips.
