Intimidator 305's lift hill towers over the theme park

Towering 305 feet above Kings Dominion, Intimidator 305 is one of the tallest rollercoasters in the United States.

Like its similarly named smaller brother Intimidator at Carowinds, the ride has a NASCAR racing theme. The name itself comes from the nickname of Dale Earnhardt, the famous NASCAR racing driver.

Intimidator 305 is an Intamin Giga Coaster, which accelerates down its 300ft first drop to reach a maximum speed of 90 miles per hour.

Following the first drop comes a 270 degree turn followed by a huge 150ft airtime hill through the lift hill structure. After this comes a series of bunny hops and high speed turns which the train navigates before being slowed by magnetic fins on the final brake run. It is one of the most intense rollercoaster experiences in the world, with some riders even experiencing grey-outs on the first turn.

The high speed, huge G-forces, staggering height and twisting turns add up to an astonishing ride experience. Intimidator 305 is regularly ranked within the top rollercoasters in the world, and is one of the highlights of the attractions on offer at Kings Dominion.
