Dragon Roller Coaster
Rye, NY United States | 2004
All 350 tons (318 tonnes) of steel making up the framework, angle material and fasteners of the Great White Roller Coaster were hot-dip galvanized for corrosion prevention, including the 20-foot (6-meter) deep, cement-covered piles.
The ease and speed of construction also made galvanizing an attractive feature to specifiers.
Galvanizing helps ensure the structural safety of the coaster by protecting the steel from damaging corrosion. Specifiers chose galvanizing to protect the coaster from the marine environment, as this thrilling roller coaster is located at a New Jersey, beachfront theme park. During high tide, parts of the coaster go out over the water, making the zinc coating even more essential. The ease and speed of construction also made galvanizing an attractive feature to specifiers. The fabricators of the project were able to rely on the galvanizer to meet tight deadlines and keep materials packaged in the erection sequence.
