Dominator starts with a 157-foot lift hill.  The first drop is 148 feet.  In the background is the Eiffel Tower, a one-third scale replica of the original Eiffel Tower in Paris.  The tower is nearly twice the height of Dominator.

The Eiffel Tower opened with the park in 1975.  It was built three years after a nearly identical tower debuted at Kings Island.  The tower is 315 feet tall.  It has two observation decks with the highest being 264 feet above ground level.  In normal operation, only one level of observation decks is open.
