This ride opened as Batman: Knight Flight at Six Flags Ohio in 2000. The next year, the park was rechristened Six Flags Geauga Lake. The ride was renamed Dominator in 2004 after Cedar Fair bought the park. Since Cedar Fair did not own the rights to the D.C. Comics characters, the ride's Batman thematic elements, such as Bruce Wayne Foundation signs on the station and Batman symbols on the coaster's seats, were removed.
In September 2007, Cedar Fair announced that Geauga Lake would become solely a water park. Just one month later, pieces of Dominator started arriving in Virginia. It premiered to the public in Kings Dominion in May 2008.
