MASON, Ohio (AP) - A new roller coaster at Kings Island will be
about a mile long and hit speeds of 80 mph, the amusement park said
The three-minute ride will begin with a 215-foot plunge, wind through more drops and twists and end in a splash. Riders will sit in trains with open-air, stadium-style seating, the park said.
The Diamondback is to open in April at the park north of Cincinnati.
It marks the park's 15th and most costly roller coaster at $22 million.
Kings Island is owned by Cedar Fair Entertainment Co.
