Back of the Dragon Center

No ride across Route 16 is complete without stopping into the Back of the Dragon Welcome Center! Featuring a modern industrial feel and designed to invite guests to relax and gather before or after their ride, the Welcome Center includes retail space, tourist information, craft beer, frozen yogurt, specialty coffee and an iconic 12 foot dragon. 

Events ranging from corn hole tournaments to live music and trivia nights are held on a weekly basis.  Food truck on site.  

Be sure to have your photo taken with the Dragon Lovers sign – an official Virginia Tourism LOVEwork.
