In case anyone hasn't heard Hurler is not opening until mid-May (my guess is for some track work). But, what I can't understand is why Shockwave is closed until the 17th.

LMAO! That picture is soooo funny. I love how Robb is proposing to Elissa(who is floating thanks to the removal of the support) on a deserted island.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I was looking at the Intimidator 305 website, they seem excited about the opening - not!

Who's this Robb guy who will be coming, not Robb Reiner the drummer from Anvil?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Pagel just confirmed that Intimidator 305 is the second fastest gravity coaster in the world behind Steel Dragon and ahead of Millennium Force.

I have been told that this coaster has the most sustained positive G's that Robb has ever experienced on a coaster! Pretty crazy!

We'll have lots more details tonight!

^Interesting, but not surprising. I never doubted this coaster would be intense.

Definitely looking forward to the review.
