Dorney Park's list of thrill attractions includes a somewhat smaller version of sister park Cedar Point's Power Tower freefall ride. Featuring two towers (as opposed to Power Tower's four) Dominator includes both the "blast off" style and the "downward launch" style for passengers to choose from.

The upward launch brings riders to a height of 155 feet in less than three seconds, reaching a speed of nearly 50 mph almost instantly after takeoff. The downward tower brings riders to a height of 170 feet, from which they are launched downward at nearly 40 mph.

Although the four tower Power Tower and the two tower Dominator (which includes a third, non-ridable tower for support) differ slightly in their construction details, a basic overview of the ride can be found at the iDexter Power Tower page.
