Before Merlin Entertainment took over Cypress Gardens, the Dragon was a standard Vekoma Junior coaster called 'Okeechobee Rampage' that opened in 2004. During the conversion of Cypress Gardens to Legoland Florida, the ride was extended to include a dark ride part between the station and the lifthill.
Most Legoland theme parks feature a Dragon-styled semi-dark ride rollercoster. The first was constructed in Legoland Billund as Dragen (1997-present).
