Flight of Fear is an enclosed roller coaster located at Kings Dominion and Kings Island. Both locations opened on June 18, 1996, as The Outer Limits: Flight of Fear, themed after the 1960s TV series of the same name. Built and designed by Premier Rides, they were the world's first launched roller coasters to feature linear induction motor (LIM) technology. The Paramount Parks branding was removed in 2001, dropping "The Outer Limits" from the name.
The ride was the second full-circuit launched coaster to open, with Space Mountain: De la Terre à la Lune at Disneyland Paris in France being the first.
