Dragon racing is a minigame in OrbusVR where players need to steer their pet dragon through an obstacle course and reach the finish line as fast as possible. The ten fastest times are noted on the leaderboard next to the course.
You can initiate a dragon race by standing next to the leaderboard sign for a race and feeding your dragon a Dragon Treat (equip it as a tool and throw it next to your pet).
You can steer your dragon by turning your head in the direction you want it to fly in. The exact direction is indicated by a small pink dot in the middle of your field of view. By pulling your thumb stick back, you dragon will slow down, which allows it to make sharper turns.
Your dragon can only fly for a limited period of time, indicated by the length of the streaks at its wingtips. When the streaks completely disappear, the dragon will fall out of the sky, failing the race. Endurance is refilled by flying through a triangle or ring of any color. Yellow rings/triangles also give you a time bonus of five seconds each.
Hitting any walls or obstacles will immediately fail the race.
