Opening Date

Flight of Fear is a LIM-launched indoor roller coaster built by Premier Rides. The roller coaster opened in 1996 under the name "The Outer Limits: Flight of Fear," themed to the television show "The Outer Limits."

Flight of Fear (along with its identical twin at Kings Dominion in Virginia) was the first LIM-launched roller coaster in the world. Thematically, the ride places visitors in the position of press members who have been granted clearance into a mysterious government hanger where an alien spaceship is held.

The bulk of the ride itself is located in a massive show-building that contains dozens of colored gel lights which disorient riders after the 54 mile per hour launch. It contains four inversions (a cobra roll, a sidewinder, and a corkscrew). Following the success of the rides at Kings Island and Kings Dominion, Six Flags purchased two clones which operate outdoors as Poltergeist at Six Flags Fiesta Texas and Joker's Jinx at Six Flags America.
