Wildly recognised as one of the best and most intense coasters in the world, Dragon Khan opened at the same time as PortAventura theme park. This B&M (Bolliger & Mabillard) sit-down coaster has eight inversions, has a top speed of 65 mph (105 kph), a 161 ft (49 mtrs) drop and was designed by legendary imagineer John Wardley and German coaster company Werner Stengel. When Shambhala opened in 2012, Dragon Khan was repainted so it didn't look too tired next to Shambhala. This video was filmed after the repaint.

PortAventura Park is located near the city of Tarragona in Salou, Spain.
