This is a wonderful steel roller coaster located at Kings Dominion in Virginia, USA. The $25 million investment was the largest of any ride in the park’s history. But the most amazing part is that the overall height of Intimidator 305 is higher than the observation platform of the park’s Eiffel Tower replica, what makes it one of the tallest rides at Kings Dominion and definitively one of the best rides in the world.
