The Sea Dragon Rollercoaster at Wyandot Lake Park, Powell Ohio

Up over the trees and beyond the entrance to the Canoochee Lazy River is the main reason that we stopped by Wyandot Lake, to ride the Sea Dragon rollercoaster.

The Sea Dragon is a John Allen designed and Philadelphia Toboggan Coaster built junior coaster.  It was built in 1956 and there were two other coasters that copied it's design, the Valley Volcano at Angela Park and the Hunts Pier Flyer.  Unfortunately of the three only the Sea Dragon remains.

The Sea Dragon is still in this age of computers and hydraulically operated brakes ran the old way with levers, pulleys, wires and ride operators to run them.

The Sea Dragon's train is a little smaller than your regular PTC train but you need to remember that this a junior coaster made for little coaster enthusiasts in mind.
