Are you serious!?


When I was there for ECB during the IntimidaTOUR, I greyed out every time but once that day. I rode it about 12 times because of ERT.


This was about the same story as mine. I rode probably about a dozen times, and only didn't black out maybe twice. Some were worse than others, as most times I would regain sight by the first bunny hill, but on others I wouldn't for what seemed like half-way through the ride. That being said, I had a slight cold that day, and was very tired out from walking and riding all day. Downing about 5 hotdogs and 3 beers at lunch didn't help things. I didn't black out on any other rides that day though, and hardly ever do. Intimidator is just a black out beast!

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Good news! Let's hope it stays that way.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^^For now. I do think we will see trims on the drop again.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Hoorah! Hopefully the drop stays clean and the ride is trimless before the third hill again. I'll be excited to ride it in that state again, and to see the reactions of those who only got to ride the trimmed version before.

This is great. The only thing the trim really killed was the first drop and 2nd hill, and the rest of the ride after that was still VERY good. So the only question that remains now is how much speed will be bled off in the first turn and how much airtime will remain on the 2nd hill.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

i have only ridden the untrimmed version, so i don't have an informed opinion on how the trims affected it, but i believe in its untrimmed form, i305 has the greatest first drop of any coaster in the world. the lift hill is very fast and throws you out of your seat for some quality air as you crest the apex, and you remain airborne for the entire 300-foot decent.

^ I really need to get out and ride this thing. I have a feeling Millennium Force may still be my favorite first drop because the view is stunning and I305 doesn't really have that but then again... never know until you ride it.

Of the woodies at KD, only Rebel Yell is worth riding, right? I mean for people who aren't too fond of headaches and/or vomiting?

My recollection is that Hurler and Grizzly are both extremely rough, right?
