Dominator is a steel roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia, USA. With a track length of 4,210 feet, it is the word's longest floorless coaster. It is the fourth B&M floorless coaster build and the only one to be relocated to another park.
History[edit | edit source]
In December 1999, Premier Parks announced a $40 million expansion to Geauga Lake, which would be renamed Six Flags Ohio for the 2000 season. This included four new roller coasters, one of which being Batman Knight Flight, a custom Floorless Coaster from Bolliger & Mabillard. The ride opened on May 5, 2000 in the Gotham City section of the park. In 2004, Cedar Fair changed the name to 'Dominator'. On September 16, 2007, Dominator (along with the park) closed down. The ride was then relocated to Kings Dominion and opened on May 24, 2008. The ride is still named Dominator.
Design[edit | edit source]
Dominator is the second-tallest, second-fastest, and longest floorless coaster anywhere. It features one of the world's largest vertical loops. It is comparable to Kraken at SeaWorld Orlando or Scream! at Six Flags Magic Mountain.
