No worries. It simply makes more sense to consolidate your replies, rather than making multiple posts. It took me a while to master this, too.

^ And they're cool w/ you not putting your phone in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo?

I'll definitely give it another chance when I'm feeling better, and while I doubt it'll suddenly be a Top 5 coaster for me, I imagine I'll enjoy it more. Also, is it better in the very front, or very back? We only rode in the very back...


I like it better in the back just for the drop. My first ever ride was in the front (while raining) and that was quite the experience. I've ridden it toward the front a few times, I don't have that much of a preference overall but the drop is better in the back.

Really? On opening day they weren't having any of that. I was still using my zippered pockets, but they were all about the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo.

Call me a masochist, I think I305 is pure fun and totally re-rideable. To each their own..

I do too, normally. But if I were already feeling a bit iffy, I probably wouldn't want to do a lot of re-rides either.

Thankfully, KD is an awesome, well-balanced park with a ton of other great rides if you're not feeling up for an I305 marathon.

I wore sunglasses through the queue of Twisted Timbers and when I reached the station, I was just instructed to put them away, which I did. Say what you will about cargo shorts, they are a must when I visit the parks. Yeah, they don't look good, but that's because I'M wearing them. Putting me in any type or brand of clothes automatically sullies their reputation.

Also, I305 is a great ride (DEFINITELY a motherfucker, intensity-wise) but I've always preferred Millennium Force for its legacy, commanding presence, and beauty, and Fury 325 for its fast, smooth, free, intense-but-not-wanting-to-kill-you ride experience. Don't know why I suddenly felt the need to drag the other domestic gigas into the conversation, but there you have it.

I know more about donkeys than women!

I guess I need to revisit I305. I took 22 years off from riding coasters and it was the third one I rode after that break. Now I have 35 more coasters under my belt. It seemed super intense when I rode it. My daughter didn't want to re-ride I305 so we got many laps on Volcano, Dominator, FoF and Backlot the day we were there. We will probably stop by KD in June on our first big trip this summer since it's on the way home, even if it's just to ride TT and I305.

1995 - Last coaster ride was Thunder Road at Carowinds
2017 - Next three coaster rides: Dominator, Volcano, I305
