^^^So, Chuck--it looks like a nice event you went to. Were you able to form an early impression of the actual coaster?

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I don't mind the name although it reminds me of all those trendy 90's rock bands with numbers in their names.

I don't get the comparisons to MF (other than this is going to be at a CF park). I am much more reminded of Kawasemi or Piraten.

After riding Piraten on the TPR Scandi trip this summer and graying out almost everytime after the first drop and curve combo, I can't imagine how I305 is going to feel! This one may require a nurse in the station ala Traver's CB Cyclone.

I've gone pantless!

Oddly enough, when they unveiled the model and showed the video, Intimidator was pretty much what I'd pictured it would be. I've become quite a fan of Intamin rides after Piraten and Expedition GeForce, and if this ride is as good as those, I'll be quite satisfied.

But the proof will be in the riding. ;)

They have also installed the supports next to Rebel Yell's turnaround as well as the ones previously pictured.

The coaster looks great! Although the layout (minus the lift hill0 looks kinda like Mega-Lite.

Word. This is the kind of coaster KD has needed for a long time. While I'm not a NASCAR fan, I think this coaster could go a long way in putting KD on the map.

Looks very nice.

Hope it rides as good as it looks.

And thankyou for the media report, Chuck.

Such an intrepid reporter, you are!
