DragonTrack

Behold the Dragon Track! After observing numerous dragons racing one another in the wild, the wizards thought that it would be fun to bring the races to your park. Help your dragons win races to earn generous rewards. The Colosseum may be where champions are made, but the Dragon Track is sure to have visitors flocking to your park in droves!

Races

Unlike the Colosseum, you can access this event as many times as you want a day. However, it will cost you 50,000 dragoncash each time you participate. 

There are both common and uncommon elements to the tracks. The common elements are the ones that appear the most, while uncommon elements have an extra element added into the particular track. If your dragon's elements match the track, it will run or fly faster in those areas. Please be aware that a stretch of sand is not an Earth element section, this is a neutral section of track that has no element.

Track Common Elements Recommended Dragons
Tutorial Plant Element Water Flag Seaweed Dragon, Swamp Dragon, Bouquet Dragon
Blast Furnace Fire Flag Metal flag Forge Dragon, Brass Dragon
Cherry Road Plant Element Earth Flag Fire Flag Cotton Dragon, Sakura Dragon, Carnival Dragon, Paper Dragon

Year of the Dragon Earth Flag Air Flag2 Water Flag Fire Flag Panlong Dragon, Terradiem Dragon
  • If you do not own a recommended dragon, use one with at least two elements that match the track (ie Love Dragon or Tree Dragon for Cherry Road). Using any Epic or Gemstone dragon is also a good alternative. Also do not choose a dragon that has an opposite element (i.e. on Dramoria, Brass Dragon will be slower than Iron Dragon because Brass Dragon has the fire element). If you do the tutorial the event will change; if you are first, second or third.
  • For "Year of the Dragon", Terradiem is a good substitute for Panlong because it matches 3 of the 4 common elements.
  • Kairos is the only dragon that cannot race.
  • The Epic and Gemstone dragons have a relatively consistent fast speed in all different races.
  • The track selected for the tutorial is always Marshlands.
  • Note that if it says "Track cleaning in progress", you have to wait a few seconds before you can play again.
  • If your dragon places worse than third, the race event will not change.
  • The starting line is counted as one of the yellow lines that give speed boosts, so if you tap at the moment when the number one nearly goes away it is possible to get an initial speed boost.
  • When tapping the yellow line that gives boosts, one of four words will appear on the top of your screen depending on how the timing was when pressing the line. The four words are: Perfect, Great, Good, and Okay.

Rewards


New - Old


Rewards are given for first, second and third place winners. After completing a race, a treasure chest appears. Players must tap on the chest to receive the randomly selected reward.

The reward can consist of Gems, ExperienceDragonCash, or Treats, or a combination of these. Rewards are selected at random from a list of possibilities, but the rewards are generally higher for placing better in the race. If the player is max level, rewards will never contain Experience, so rewards of DragonCash or Treats are more likely. After winning a Gem prize, no more Gems can be won in the following 6 hours.

If the Perch of Kairos is under construction, the reward may instead be a randomly selected Artifact. If the random Artifact is a Time Fragment the player already has, the player may select his or her choice from a reward of 150,000 DragonCash, 5000 Treats, or Experience equal to 5% of the next level.

  • As of June 27, 2013, the reward process was redesigned to introduce a "Treasure Chest" upon successful completion of a race.
  • The message that appears on the Dragon Track results screen changed from "Spin the Wheel" to "Claim your prize".
  • Up to November 16, 2013, magic could also be earned upon successful completion of a race.
  • New Treasure Chest Reward
  • Gold Chest
  • Silver Chest
  • Bronze Chest


Dragon Behaviors

  • When dragons successfully perform a speed boost, the dragons emit exhaust that, for some dragons, is identical to the Elemental Breath of their primary element. Exceptions include the Sun Dragon (emits exhaust that matches Lightning Dragon's breath), and the Moon Dragon (emits exhaust that matches Cold Dragon's breath).
  • The dragon at the top of the racetrack may frequently be the ideal dragon for that specific course. For example, in the Blast Furnace track, the dragon will always be either the Forge Dragon or the Brass Dragon; this does not apply when you select an Epic Dragon.
  • The dragons you race against are always ones you can possibly have at the level your park is. eg. If you are level 16, you cannot race in the tracks Dramoria and Blast Furnace, as well as not being able to race against the Metal Dragon or a metal hybrid.
    • The dragons at the top will almost always finish first out of the five opponents.
    • The dragons second from the top and second from the bottom will usually have one of the elements suited for the track, and will normally place second and third out of the five opponents.
    • The dragon at the bottom of the track will almost always finish last out of the five opponents and most of the time, it does not have at least one element suited for the specific track.
  • As of July 25, 2012, the Basic Dragons and the Hybrid Dragons are able to race against Limited Dragons.
