    DOSWELL, Va. (AP) - Kings Dominion says its $25 million Intimidator 305 "Giga-coaster" will debut in the spring of 2010. Vice President and General Manager Pat Jones said Thursday the new roller coaster is the largest single capital investment in the park's history. The 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. (Copyright 2009 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
