This was my first tower ride. For me, I like the red side better, just for the fact youre going up high speed yet you still fall back down. The green tower just seemed less interesting, but it does scare you more!

O.K., I really hate to have to say this, and I really wanted Dominator to be better, but I think Dominator won the award for "Worlds Largest Kiddie Ride".:trophy: It was so increadibly tame that Pit Fall and Dr. Doom (just to name a few) dwarf and shame it in comparison.

I rode the red side and did not get to try the green side. Based on the red side, Id say this is a very ok ride. Not to shabby, but could be better (remember, Im talking about the RED side).

Unlike some people, I prefer the red side (up) to the green side (down) for some reason. I give the up a 10 and the down an 8, resulting in a rating of a 9. Other than that, there is nothing really special about this ride for me. It is just another 190 or so foot tall tower ride. Not even really that big in comparison with some.

My first tower ride. I was so scared going on this for the first time. For some reason these towers scare me. Im glad I did go on it because theyre really fun! I prefer the down side because of the freefall feeling and being suspended at the top for a while.

I went on the one that went down fast. I loved when they hold you up at the top and in like 20 seconds they randomly drop you.

Your typical S and S tower, which is very enjoyable. Not as big as Power Tower, but still worth a ride.

To start things off, Ill say I can ride just about any thrill ride thrown my away, except for drop towers. The fact that I still force myself to ride these things is beyond me. I guess its just that horribly slow crawl up the tower and being held up there that just scares the crap out of me. With that said, I actually liked Dominator pretty well. I ofcourse hated the climb up there but the drop was fantastic like all tower rides. The airtime was brilliant. So, in retrospect, this ride probably deserves a 9 or 10 but gets an 8 from me because tower rides scare the crap out of me.

this isnt the best ride, but is still in the top 10 list because it has some history to me becoming a coaster enthusist, and also has a great story. It was a hot day at dorney park, and i got into the line. I wasnt a big fan of thrill rides, but my cousin forced me to go on it. I went on the green side. About half way into the line, i was soooo hot, i had to get a drink. I got out of line, and got one. I drank it while going back in lne to where i was. i said i was looking for my sister, and people ewre pissed off that i was cutting. When i was back in line. About 15 minutes later i had to go to the bathroom. I got out of line and went. When i came back, my cousin had already went on the line. I cut in front of this little kid and said i had a fastpass. I got on and i slowly went up the tower. I started crying (i was only 6). When i got to the top, i was REALLY afraid. We dropped. I screamed my head off. I got off, and my cousin thought i was going to cry more... but i wanted to go on again! That was when i started trying coasters, and other thrill rides. The breaking point was when i went to cedarpoint and i rode Millennium force. I was oficially a theme park/coaster enthusiest. I wouldnt be here today if it wasnt for the dominator.
