Steel Dragon 2000 is a Morgan giga roller coaster located at Nagashima Spa Land in Kuwana, Mie, Japan. Built by Morgan, this coaster opened, appropriately, in 2000 — "The Year of the Dragon" in Asia. It debuted only months after Millennium Force and surpassed the Cedar Point coaster as the world's tallest complete-circuit coaster. It also took the record from Ultimate at Lightwater Valley for the longest track length. It is the only giga coaster manufactured by Chance Morgan.

For the 2013 season, the ride received new trains from Bolliger & Mabillard. The new trains are similar to those used on B&M hyper roller coasters, however they only seat two across. The ride opened with its new rolling stock on Match 15, 2013.
