Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Intimidator, a roller coaster at Carowinds. (The minimum height to ride is 54 inches.)
Written by SC Todbear
This Dale Earnhardt-themed Hyper coaster from Bolliger and Mabillard is the park's tallest and longest coaster, with a 211-foot initial drop and 5,316 feet of track. The coaster features seven drops, as well as the Cedar Fair "staggered" Hyper coaster cars - four seats to a car, two together in the front row, and two to the side of those in the rear.
Intimidator was added to the park in 2010.
Definitely one of my top 10 coasters. Great speed with smoothness and fun airtime. It loses a little something right near the end with the brake, but the rest of the ride is great! For me, it doesn't pack the punch of its big brother Intimidator 305 at KD, but it's still a great coaster. - Roger S
