Dragon Challenge is a roller coaster attraction inside The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal's Island of Adventure. One of the most incredible steel coasters ever built, this is the first ever, inverted, dual-tracked, dueling roller coaster. Each track is named after a different dragon – Chinese Fireball and Hungarian Horntail. During the two-minute ride, the trains duel each other at times passing within only 18 inches of each other. Originally called Dueling Dragons, the attraction was renamed for the opening of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
