Intimidator 305

Because trains travel up the lift hill so rapidly, they crest the top with a fair amount of speed.  Add to that the 300-foot drop, and trains can reach speeds of 94 miles per hour.  Kings Dominion claims that this is the fastest gravity-driven roller coaster in North America.  This may be accurate because the only coasters that are over 400 feet tall are launched coasters.
