Villain was a wooden roller coaster at the Geauga Lake amusement park in Aurora, Ohio. It was manufactured by the now defunct Custom Coasters International (CCI). The ride opened as a part of the 4 coaster expansion Six Flags brought to Geauga Lake between 1999 and 2000. It is a wooden hybrid which means it has steel supports but has wood track. When it originally opened, the ride was incredibly smooth, but over time it deteriorated and was re-tracked during the off-season.fact|date=December 2007

In early October 2007, the Villain's trains were found on site at King's Island, another Cedar Fair park in Mason, OH.fact|date=December 2007 It is unknown what they will be used for.

] . While on the ride Wang was struck with several objects that were believed to be rocks or a cell phone. The impact of the objects caused her to endure a fractured skull and broken nose. Park officials had previously been warned about patrons who were throwing rocks at rides. With that, rocks were found on the ground below the roller coaster as well as on the catwalk and track. However, a park attorney theorized that Wang was struck with a cell phone. Wang sued Six Flags because of the injuries that she sustained. The trial was held at Portage County Common Pleas Court and the jury determined Six Flags was guilty of negligence. Wang was awarded $1.1 million for medical expenses and $2.5 million in punitive damages because of the trial’s verdict.
