Cranberry Lake Preserve to choose the name for Playland Park’s first new ride in over a decade.

From the five finalists – Dizzy Dragon, Dragon Spinner, Dragon Twist, The Dragonator and The Dragon's Tailspin – the campers overwhelmingly chose “Dragonator” for this exciting new attraction.

Latimer said: “Last month, I asked the people of Westchester to submit their name ideas – and we received 409 submissions. While some were nutty – like Ridey McRideface and I-95 – most were fun. But what makes ‘Dragonator’ so special is that the final name was chosen by children of this County – which is who Playland is all about.”

The name was submitted by Mount Pleasant resident Larry Gottlieb. Gottlieb said: “As a lifelong Westchester resident having spent many hours at Playland with family and friends, it’s a truly unique honor to name a ride that will hopefully bring joy to thousands of park attendees for years to come. Long live the Dragonator!”
