If you’re a fan of Schlitterbahn, you’re well aware of our Iconic New Braunfels Castle– Schlitterbahn opened with four water slides built around a 60-foot tall replica of the Bergfried Tower, the guard tower of the Solms Castle in Braunfels, Germany.

BUT, do you know about the dragon that protects all of Surfenburg?!

Here is everything you need to know about the Dragon…and the ride that has become a must-do and a Schlitterbahn Classic: Dragon’s Revenge!Boy and girl sliding in dark tunnel

1. Dragon’s Revenge is the World’s First Uphill Water Coaster! #humblebrag

4. The queue is separate from the ride. You’ll wait at the bottom by the Boogie Bahn for your tube! Once you have your tube in hand you’ll head up to the ride to face the Dragon!
