|Opening date||May 2, 1995|
The attraction was constructed sometime around 1993-1994 by Bolliger and Mabillard. After around a year of construction and testing, Dragon Khan opened on May 2, 1995 to the general public.
After riders are seated and given the clear to be dispatched, riders begin their ascent up the 148-foot lift hill that now hovers underneath the neighboring Shambhala: Expedicion al Himalaya, which opened in May 2012 (about 17 years after Dragon Khan). After reaching the top of the hill, riders then descend down the 161-foot main drop and into a 118-foot vertical loop. Then, the ride throws its guests into a dive loop, a Zero-g roll, and a cobra roll. Riders then enter the first brake system, where they can have a chance to take a breath before plummeting downwards into a smaller vertical loop and the grand finale - two interlocking corkscrews. After the train exits the last corkscrew, it pulls into the final brake system and then slowly enters the Chinese-like station.
- It was PortAventura's second roller coaster at the time.
- It has the most inversions on any coaster at PortAventura, with eight.
- Back in 1995, it also had the most inversions on any coaster in the world, before the ten-looping Colossos opened at Heide Park seven years later (2002).
- It also has the most inversions on any B&M coaster made before and after its construction.
- The ride is one minute, forty-five seconds long.
