An amusement park in Virginia will be home next year to the East Coast's tallest and fastest roller coaster of its kind. The "Intimidator" at Kings Dominion will be more than 300 feet high at its highest point and will descend at an 85 degree angle at 90 miles per hour.
The ride is the park's biggest investment ever at a cost of 25 million dollars. It's named for the late NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt Sr. The Earnhardt company is partnering with the park, and the cars in the ride are being modeled after his signature black car.
The Intimidator will be ready to go by next spring.
