BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore company says it's building the world's tallest indoor roller coaster for a shopping mall in China.
Maryland's Department of Business and Economic Development touted the project Thursday as one of the state's exporting achievements.
Premier Rides Inc. says the coaster is for the Great Mall of China, opening next year near Beijing.


Premier isn't releasing the coaster's specifications for competitive reasons. The 90-foot Canyon Blaster at Circus Circus in Las Vegas is currently billed as the tallest indoor roller coaster.


Premier Rides moved its headquarters from Millersville to Baltimore in 2010. Its other projects include two "Revenge of the Mummy" indoor roller coasters at the Universal Studios theme parks in Florida and California, and a Yamaha Racing Coaster at the Trans Studio indoor theme park in Bandung, Indonesia.
