Hi everyone, how was I-305 running in 2011? I'm attempting a Virginia trip when Verbolten is operating but wanted to hit I-305 as well if it was worth the trip.

Thx


BTW, used to be a member on here years ago. How time flys..

I'm likely going to KD this summer, so: does anyone know if the trims are staying off or will they be needed again?

Guess we won't really know until April 8th, but people in the know have said that the park is pleased with the ride's performance after the mods. Unlikely there will be any further changes.

Thank goodness. But then again I'll be heading there late summer, but fingers crossed on everything going well.

I thought it was running great in April and September last year. But what do I know? I've never been on it with the trims on the first drop.

I'll be on it one month from today, if all goes well.

If you mean GAdv, Jen and I are supposed to go Opening Day, April 6. I'm also going Easter Sunday three days later. Saturday's out..dentist in the early a.m. and possibly a Mets game that afternoon. If you do wanna meet sometime, let me know.

Took the day off a while back. I've gone Easter Sunday for the past several years...it was empty most of the day each time except for last year..used to only be open to SP holders and a certain Jewish Community Group. Last year, though, it was open to everyone and got a bit crowded mid-afternoon. Great day to go. I imagine Saturday might be a little more dense. I found out today they're offering Opening Day tickets on-line for $20.12, so I figure that'll entice some that might not have gone that day otherwise. Opening Day rarely falls on a weekday, so I guess they're trying to boost.

What do you mean SUPPOSED to go? We ARE going mister. And I had the strangest dream about KK last night - I was strapped in, waiting to go to the launch area and it stopped. The ride op said they were having problems with the electrical system and the weirdest part is I was sitting next to Heejun from American Idol! I did watch it before bed so I suppose that's where he came in. That better NOT be a sign of things to come....

Did you see that Sky Screamer isn't opening until late spring now? I figured we wouldn't be so lucky. Hope the bumper cars are up though - it's been a long time and we all know nostalgia makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

I was there last year and it was running beautifully. I do recommend the front on that one but have sunglasses with straps on or you'll never be able to open your eyes with that speed. Never went on it without the trims or before the modification after the trims though so I can't compare it to then.
