Kings Dominion's Flight of Fear is an alien themed indoor rollercoaster.

The ride was built by Premier Rides and was opened in 1996. It is an identical twin to Flight of Fear at Kings Island which also opened on the same day. They were the first rollercoasters in the world to use Linear Induction Motors to launch the train from a standing start.

Riders experience most of Flight of Fear in the dark having been launched out of the station and into the main ride area, with just the occasional coloured light to highlight the track ahead. This helps heighten the sensation of speed and disorientation as the train navigates through the rollercoaster's cobra roll, sidewinder and corkscrew inversions.

Due to its location inside its large hangar, Flight of Fear can be easy to miss, especially for visitors attracted towards its towering neighbour Intimidator 305. The rollercoaster is, however, well worth a ride and is somewhat underrated when compared next to some of Kings Dominion's other rides and attractions.
