Offical Flight of Fear Topic - Clint Novak - 04-05-2010 12:54 PM

Talk about it here!

Okay, Which FOF opened first?
KD's or KI's?

- brewer97 - 04-05-2010 02:19 PM

I think KI's, although both were built in '96.

Quote from wikipedia:
"Flight of Fear was built by Premier Rides and was the world's first linear induction motor roller coaster"
This is about the one at KI

I think I remember hearing that Premier Rides could not get ether ride working. KD maintenance staff got ours to work then was sent to KI I think ours opened two weeks before KI's.

I got a ride in the front on sunday, and inside it was scenic, air conditioned, and awesome. Front is definitely the place to be I think, you can feel the wheight of the train really pushing you down the second half of the ride (which is essentially a downward spiral, if you know what I mean).

FOF's restraints are bad for me, I mean im only 6 foot 2 and the restraints seem tight!

This has to be my favorite ride in the world, next to Revenge of The Mummy. I have said in other topics that I go on the ride with my little flash light and flicker it on and off. It scares people on the ride and the reactions are to die for. This is all I pretty much come to the park for. I wish I had one of these for myself. I would do all kinds of theme tweaking for it, to make it scarier. You would think that I would get tired of riding it over and over again, but I don't for some reason. Rider reactions on this ride are to die for and I love being in the dark at high speeds.

Does FOF have the same layout as rock 'n roller coaster at Disney? or was RnR built by vekoma....

I believe their are similar but they are not. Flight of Fear has the inversion at the end of the ride while, Rockin Roller Coaster does not.

^which do u like more?

- alex4hokies - 04-06-2010 03:40 PM

I personally like FOF more than Rock 'N' Roller Coaster. Better restraints and the ride is more enjoyable for some reason. RNRC launch is better though... IMO.

On sunday i got to ride flight of fear with the lights on! EPIC. The ride operators forgot to turn them off for the first ride of the day.

- brewer97 - 04-06-2010 03:56 PM

^^yeah RnRC was my first and only LIM...pretty sick launch :twisted:

- Fooz - 04-06-2010 10:21 PM

Do they ever turn all the lights off?

Theres usually a few dim lights, and you can see the track pretty clearly. I was wondering if its ever pitch black in there.

- KingsDominionGeek - 04-06-2010 10:27 PM

Yes - they were all off some last year.
