In 2010, Kings dominion debuted Intimidator 305 – the tallest and fastest gravity driven coaster on the East Coast.
Standing over 300 feet tall, reaching speeds of more than 90 miles per hour and inspired by one of stock car racing’s most beloved and tenacious drivers, Intimidator 305 celebrates the speed and intensity of the legendary career of Dale Earnhardt. The ride starts with a quick climb to 305 feet before being dropped to the earth at an 85 degree angle. What follows is a series of sharp twists, high-speed, ground-level turns and airtime hills delivering a ride that will leave you feeling like you’ve just run a lap with The Intimidator himself.
At $25 million, Intimidator 305 represents the largest single investment in Kings Dominion history. The steel Giga-Coaster is nearly a full mile long, covers 5 acres and features trains fashioned after Dale Earnhardt’s signature black car.
