Location: Kings Dominion in Doswell, Virginia.

Intimidator 305 goes up, yup, 305 feet, making it one of the tallest and fastest coasters in the world. But instead of incorporating subsequent huge hills to deliver big pops of airtime, the groundbreaking ride mostly hugs the ground. Its incredible pent-up energy is instead used to intimidate riders by sending them tearing--and I mean tearing--through over-banked turns and other wild maneuvers like a NASCAR racer gone loco.
