From the Marbles - NASCAR

If you live anywhere within a thousand miles of Richmond, Virginia, get ready to get doused with awesomeness! In the spring of 2010, the amusement park Kings Dominion will introduce the Intimidator 305! And get this -- it's only the second Giga-Coaster built in the United States! I don't know what the hell that means, but it sounds awesome! And extreme! It'll be ... aw-treme!

Here are the deets. The coaster will rise 305 feet in the air (hence the "305" moniker), will shoot almost straight downward 300 feet, and hit 90+ mph as it goes. Riders get to ride in train cars fashioned after the Intimidator's classic No. 3. I find it a huge disappointment that you don't get to spin out a Terry Labonte coaster car along the way, but you take what you can get, I guess.

You can check out the progress of the coaster's construction by visiting its website right here. And be sure to take a virtual ride on the coaster by clicking here. Prepare to be ... Intimidated!
