I rode it 8X in April and grayed out every time. Honestly, I doubt I would ride it again next time I am at the park. It's just not re-rideable for me. And I LOVE coasters!
If they could find someway to modify the turn after the drop to avoid the gray out, sign me up! In my opinion, a great coaster is one which I would love to ride over and over. Fast, smooth, fun....i305 has the first 2 but the sickening feeling after the drop just didn't agree with me.
Anyway, we'll see what happens over the next several weeks.
Wow, just when you think you've seen just about about as many incredibly stupid people in the world as you can...along comes more of them!
The thing that impresses me the most is that these people (what, like 1- 2 hundred of them) think that KD is gonna bow down to their "demands". I think KD is more likely to try and please the few million that will more than likely pass through those turnstiles instead! Maybe they really need to start a cult like Robb said about a few pages back and go jump off a cliff nekked or something!
Life is a lemon and I want my money back????
He who farts in church sits in own pew.............
All these people should really be glad they have I305 at all. They complain for years about not having a "great" coaster and how KD has no airtime. They finally get a ride that fits those complaints and what do they do? Complain even more. They really need to be thankful for having a ride that is one of the tallest and fastest coasters in the world, and will most likely be a top ten coaster.
On a side note, it's too bad KD didn't put in I3.5, which would probably have much less complaining and be about $24 million cheaper.

I actually have to agree with this somewhat. I mean, I rode it 50+ times during media day mainly because I was WORKING that day shooting the media footage. BUT... had I not been working, I'm not sure I would have ridden it as many times as I did.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely *loved* the ride and the gray-out didn't bother me as much as it did John, but I will say that it really took me off guard and kind of "scared" me a little bit! Like in that sense of "This might actually be a little too much for me" kind of way.
I'd be really happy if they came up with a nice balance to make the first drop and turn a *little* less intense, but keep the majority of the airtime on that 2nd hill. My gut feeling is that we will continue to see tweaks and changes to the trims that have been installed and I'm looking forward to seeing what they decide is the final version.
I went w/ my Sister who is not a very big coaster rider but she likes them. She rode I305 last month and did not like the blackout or the transitions very much at all. She really did not want to ride it again ( I told her they changed something on the ride and you should give it a second chance) She thought it was much smoother and better but she still blacked out. She did not notice a difference in speed or the slower first drop. It is odd as coaster fans that we are so sensitive to these things but about 99% of people who rode it before in after will probably never know anything has been done to the ride.
I found the ride more enjoyable today and I did get air in the back on the small hop before the twisty's and the 75ft hill is very good now but sadly the 2nd hill is just too drawn out to get anything more than mild floater in the front.
