^The interesting query is that KD owns the lands surrounding the road, but its a state maintained road. I could understand if Clint adn the guys where stand off the road... and I could also understand if police asked them to leave because they were loitering...

I'm not good with laws and stuff... :roll:

18 more days.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

At first I thought 305 would just be slightly better than Millennium Force, but now it looks to blow MF away. That airtime looks amazing. I cannot wait to ride in July :b

Here is a picture I took on Saturday of KD's new skyline. I stopped by on the drive home from WDW :)

I have to say that this drop looks like it may be the best out there.

^ It really is amazing how much taller I305 is than the rest of the skyline (especially Anaconda, which is no small coaster itself).

If the trains end up being the as-of-late regular intamin OTSRs I'm going to be disappointed. These are bearable on Fahrenheit and Maverick but I'm worried about how comfortable they'll be on the first turn (even with it's super wide radius) and the numerous quick transitions...

I just ventured over to the KD Fansite to see if any kind of good information might be getting spread by an insider, and I deeply regret having taken that plunge. One kid is speculating that the ride is going 102 mph and pulling 6 g's. :?r

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

^ It can really be wacky over there!
I have rode 54 coasters, 45 steel and 9 wood. I've visited 11 parks, top woodie is Rebel Yell (KD), top steel is Kumba (BGT).
