The grass is growing pretty well under I305, I bet that pic was from opening day 2011.

Regardless of when the picture is from, it's still a YEAR after the coaster opened and the ground still looks barren in rather large areas.

Have we ever seen a hypercoaster with such a low to the ground layout and airtime hills before? This could be a speed demon!

IT'S NOT AN INTIMIDATOR 305 CLONE.

I'm going to figuratively punch myself in the groin every time someone compares Skyrush to Intimidator 305. Two completely different beasts.

I know Skyrush isn't an I-305 clone, and I wasn't even comparing them to each other. Fooz asked if there has ever been a coaster with a low-to-the-ground layout with airtime hills before. I was saying that I-305 would be one other example of such a coaster. i.e., I'm NOT saying they are clones.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

This I have to mostly agree with. I think the only way this could be similar to I-305 is the way the lift hill looks and even that is going to be different since it won't be built in one piece.

By the way, after looking at Formula Russa, it turns out that those single spine pieces are nothing new:
