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

and your ready to get off the ride and take the merry-go round...
You change your mind, throw you hands in the air
and ride the roller coaster all over again."

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.

Intimidator 305 is blackout-tistic!

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).

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.

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.

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.
