Spinning cars is what differentiates the Steel Dragon roller coaster from that of a traditional one. Each four-passenger car sporting back-to-back seating in two rows is designed to spin, uncontrolled as they cruise along the nearly 1,400 feet of steel track that has been sculpted into a "twister" layout.
