Sister park Kings Dominion is building an Earnhardt-themed coaster for 2010, as well. Its Intimidator 305, an Intamin Giga, topped out earlier this month. Track construction continues there.

Double odds if the same park twins it with a coaster named "Devil's Tail."

Thanks Carowinds...

But yes driving by it is really something to see. Coming south on I-77 and it jumps out at you in the skyline. I'm definitely coming home in the summer to give it a ride!
