Tallest, fastest roller coaster coming to Virginia

By Washington Post editors

Kings Dominion says its $25 million Intimidator 305 roller coaster is ready.

The amusement park plans to show off the ride to the media on Thursday. The ride is set to open to the public a day later.

Kings Dominion’s 5,100-foot-long steel roller coaster is named for NASCAR legend Dale Earnhardt and its 305-foot-high lift hill.

Kings Dominion says the Intimidator 305 will be the tallest and fastest of its type on the East Coast. The roller coaster was designed by Intamin AG of Wollerau, Switzerland.

Kings Dominion’s owner, Cedar Fair Entertainment Company, is partnering with Dale Earnhardt Inc. on the project.
