This video (just posted) clearly shows it going much slower down the drop and over the second hill:

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

^Oh, I don't know, the fact that it was taken during media day and Robb was in a restricted area that no guests are allowed to enter during a regular operating day?

Yes, but it must also be void of any right hand turns. Who cares about the effing trims, this coaster fails directly after the first drop.

Wow...that is actually noticeably a lot slower than the offride videos I shot.

crap! I can only hope for a miracle for it to be further adjusted and a little faster when I'll visit the States and KD in June... :cry:

So what happens with the ratings of this ride? Does anyone who rode it in its beginning stages think it's going to substantially drop? I'm actually so happy and envious for everyone that got to ride this thing un-neutered!

I really can't believe this is happening, as it appears the ride will never be the same again.

Just another MF now, I suppose.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really haven't chimed in on the whole trim on the first drop, but I have to say that video is just sad. Hopefully they aren't done tweaking this ride just yet.

I Love Donkeys!

Would it have been possible to add the trims on the backside of the 150' hill? This would have kept the best parts of the ride intact, while keeping the improvements during the rest of the ride. With the trims on the 1st drop the blackouts/greyouts are potentially worse since the high positive g's are even more sustained.

After watching the Offride... I've got a sick feeling in my stomach about that 150' "airtime" hill. Looks like MF second hill now.
