Lagoon's Colossus The Fire Dragon roller coaster was selected by People Magazine in 1984 as one of the top 10 coaster rides in the country. On board you'll descend eight stories to fly through two back-to-back 65-foot diameter loops and then brave two high-speed spirals. Colossus The Fire Dragon is a one-of-a-kind roller coaster from Anton Schwarzkopf.
