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.

Less intense but every bit as enjoyable as its counterpart in Kings Dominion, Intimidator sacrifices extreme turns and lateral Gs for big drops and airtime-inducing crests. Sure, this bad boy doesn't cause grey-outs, and it doesn't quite stack up to the aptly named Fury, but it's a very enjoyable coaster worthy of praise.
