i305 opens with changes
This past weekend Kings Dominion opened for the season and park guests were treated to a slightly modified Intimidator305. The coaster’s first turn immediately following the 305-foot drop was modified to relieve some of the intense forces that required brakes to be installed on the first drop last season. See the changes for yourself below:
You can see in the above shot that the turn following the drop quickly elevates into the large camelback hill.
I’m glad that drop wasn’t modified!
A train prepares to crest the lifthill and begin the terrifyingly fast ride.
None of the ride’s second half was modified.

Kings Dominion has an impressive coaster collection, and this isn’t even all of it!
