Baltimore-based Premier Rides said it will design and build the world's tallest and fastest- looping roller coaster at a California theme park.
Six Flags Magic Mountain picked the company to construct the coaster next year, Premier said. Called "Full Throttle," the ride will include a 160-foot-tall loop, a "special effects tunnel" and three separate launches from zero to 70 miles per hour.
Premier's other projects include what will be the world's largest indoor coaster, to open next year in the Great Mall of China near Beijing.
