Dominator, formerly known as Batman: Knight Flight under Six Flags' ownership of the Ohio park, will remain the longest floorless roller coaster after its move.
This steel beast designed by Bolliger and Mabillard carries its passengers to 161 feet before dropping them 157 feet back down at a curved angle. The drop leads to the world’s largest inversion: a 135 foot tall vertical loop.
Out of the 13 roller coasters currently standing at Kings Dominion, Dominator, the 14th, is one of the largest, standing four feet shy of the HyperSonic XLC's 165-foot tower. The ride also marks the first time Kings Dominion has opened a coaster with more than four inversions.Dominator features five: the loop, a cobra roll (two inversions), and interlocking corkscrew loops.
The Dominator will be constructed during an off-season that lasts until weekends in March through April. It is expected that Kings Dominion will open Dominator in late spring to early summer 2008.
Track and support sections have already begun showing up in Kings Dominion's parking lot, and COASTER-net will have coverage as this ride begins its transformation from an Ohio to Virginia ride.
