Not that it matters, but I think I like the color scheme on Carowinds' Intimidator better.

But looks like a pretty sweet ride, great addition to Kings Dominion

You're not the only one. I used to be on the TPR IntimadeTour 2010, but I had to cancel it.
No I have to wait at least 2 years before I am able to ride I305

From a Times-Dispatch article:

"Nine-year-old coaster enthusiast Josh Rachlin said, “Oh my God, that’s the best coaster I’ve ever ridden!“ His dad, Doug, added, “My favorite part is the smoothness. That makes me happy."

- Good to hear.

Elissa, did Robb say anything about grey outs on I305? I know Millie was known for causing grey outs...

To be fair, 9 year olds (myself included when I was that age) will say any tall ride is the "best ride ever!!1!1!1111!!." And the smoothness is a given with today's ride design technology!

That said, the positive force on this thing looks beyond beastly, and the airtime on the first hill looks pretty good too. I can't really judge since I'll probably never ride it, but it looks like those trims REALLY kill the airtime on the 2nd airtime hill. That said, I'm going to hold off any validity to that comment until we get some actual reviews of this thing.

If I'm right I305 will be the winner of this battle, because MF is famous for having no forces of any kind at all.

I appears to have the best of both worlds with extreme positive and extreme negative Gs.
