Have you heard the story of Merlin & Mayhem?

Merlin the Magician ventured through the caves of Dutch Wonderland. While on his voyage, the light from his wand illuminated what seemed to be a large purple circle. As he drifted closer, he noticed that this large purple circle was, in fact, a very large egg - larger than any egg he had ever seen! Merlin brought the egg home and kept it safe and warm, until one day the egg began to hatch! Out popped a little dragon!

Merlin immediately became best friends with this dragon, but he couldn’t think of a name that fit him. Over the next few weeks, the dragon was found playing with Merlin’s wand, misusing his fire-breathing skills, and causing all sorts of mischief. Because of all of these mishaps, Merlin knew just what to name him… Mayhem. Mayhem was growing up to be a very friendly dragon, yet always seemed to get into trouble. Merlin taught his dragon many different tricks, how to control his fire breathing skills, and even how to fly.

One day, Merlin was demonstrating a magic trick when Mayhem took off into the sky! Merlin tried to catch him, but he disappeared into the distance. Merlin needs everyone’s help to find his best friend, Mayhem! Join Merlin on a magical journey through Dutch Wonderland on this high-flying coaster, Merlin’s Mayhem, to find our mischievous friend.

Merlin’s Mayhem holds a new magical surprise around each new twist and turn. Test your bravery on this thrilling coaster as you soar and reach new heights of excitement!

As the park’s only suspended coaster, once you get buckled in, your feet will dangle throughout the entire ride, adding to the thrill factor of the experience! Once you set off from the station, you’ll immediately begin climbing a 60-foot tall hill. Anticipation builds as the coaster slowly approaches the top of the hill, and your heart skips a beat as the whole coaster plunges down at once! From there, momentum only builds as you wind around an S-bend, navigate a turnover around a pond, and then reach the ride’s helix point. The coaster then goes under a tunnel and around a few more turns just before pulling back into the station at an abrupt and laugh-inducing halt. 

Parents and children can enjoy thrills, shrieks, and Mayhem together for the entire ride! It’s an excellent family-friendly coaster with a mild thrill factor, meaning it’s recommended for children at least 6 years or older. Please be aware that Merlin’s Mayhem has a minimum height requirement of 39”.
