Kings Dominion's new rollercoaster

Posted by Shawn Maclauchlan

DOSWELL, VA (WWBT) - Kings Dominion is getting a new rollercoaster next spring.

Named after one of NASCAR's most popular drivers - Dale Earnhart - the "Intimidator 305" will be the park's biggest coaster: almost a mile of track, and a hill that's nearly as tall as the park's iconic Eiffel tower.

The three minute ride will go 90 miles an hour.
