Yesterday Kings Dominion FINALLY started testing I305. Talk about down to the wire. The “themed amusement park” opens April 2nd, and with cars just hitting the track you have to wonder if the new Giga will be open with the park. At any rate we have new video and all new pics of I305 testing.
The restraints were one point of contention before construction with people arguing about the system. If you look closely, it looks like normal over the shoulder restraints…nothing special here.

It will be very interesting to see how the companies two Intimidators measure up to one another, and if I305 can get things ready before opening day. Our reader indicates that they have been working round the clock with lights on in the station well into the wee hours of the morning. I wouldn’t be surprised if you end up seeing this thing testing at night before too long to get the required log hours on the track.
