    Pace Masterpiece Intensity Harness Intensity

    This is my #2 coaster of all time, just behind The Voyage. Intimidator 305 is a barrage of insanely whippy S-bends that make Maverick’s into laughingstock, a first turn with blackout-inducing 5 G’s, and relentless pacing throughout. I fought for my consciousness on that first turn, where my vision began to turn dark as night even though it the time was only morning, and won a victory as soon as we crested that second hill. Then I was treated to the most balls-to-the-wall intense coaster I have ever ridden. NOTHING compares to being thrown from side-to-side on every single turn, whipped from one side of your seat to the other on every directional change, and yanked down each airtime hill with unrestrained madness. As soon as I got off Intimidator 305, I knew I had a new #1 coaster. I couldn’t muster myself to ride it again that day, however, because of its sheer intensity. I wasn't as floored by the rest of Kings Dominion, but this coaster is absolutely phenomenal!

    First Drop Pace Intensity

    I knew that this coaster was going to be great going in, but it still managed to blow my expectations away. Definitely be sure to get a front row ride, the sense of speed is off the charts. The first turn is loaded with positive Gs and I found myself greying out twice out of my three rides. The turn after the first hill also provides some incredible speed. You just tear through the layout and the transitions are relentless. The ride is fairly smooth, but I found the back to have a noticeable rattle, especially during moments of higher positive Gs. Right after getting off I knew for sure that this was the best steel coaster I have ever ridden. It's just such a blast from start to finish. What a ride.

    Airtimes Pace Intensity

    I'm so glad to have this at my home park. Everyone already knows that this has some of the best positive gs and transitions ever, but there are other aspects of this ride that don't get talked about enough. The airtime is great. The first drop gives strong sustained ejector, the first Camelback gives about four seconds of ejector, and the transition after the Camelback gives an amazing ejector/lateral combination. Even the trimmed hill gives good flojector in the front. The sense of speed is probably my favorite part though. Experiencing all these forces while going over 80mph is a one a million sensation. Best at KD.

    The most intense coaster out there, if you like intensity you have found it, plus the whip is a nice aspect.

    Forever the most intense coaster on Earth. A true masterpiece that is only held back in my rankings by the coasters ahead focusing more on airtime.

    Incredible coaster. One of the most intense rides I have ever experienced. The first drop is great and the legendary first turn makes you grey out every single time. The rest of the ride is just constant high speed transitions that whip you side to side and there's even some floater thrown in to mix it up. 10/10 for sure.

    This thing is crazy intense, but just lacks overall. Still a great ride and top 15 for me. Don't go in assuming this is the best coaster in the world, you'll be left dissapointed.

    This is the single most intense roller coaster I've ridden and is my #3 coaster overall. It's such an intense rush that's sure to make you grey out and potentially black out. Plus throw in some excellent airtime moments and you've got one heck of an insane ride. The restraints are a bit annoying but they do not affect the perfection of this masterpiece

    Airtimes First Drop Intensity

    JESUS CHRIST, WHAT IS THIS RIDE?!?! This ride is a barrage of intensity, ejector airtime, and snappy laterals. My absolute favorite part of this ride and one of my favorite elements of all time is the snappy speed hill. I love this ride SO MUCH! It's easily my #1 of all time. Every hill is ejecty, every s-bend is a joy, and every turn tries to knock you out cold! You'll never feel faster than when you are darting around near the ground at 90 miles per hour! This ride is such a rush!

    This is defiantly the best Intamin I've ridden and the most intense coaster I've ridden. It has 2 insane ejector airtime moments. The snaps are insane as they fling you to the side of the train. And the drop is stunning. And the first turn is a easy greyout. Overall this is my number #2 and its pretty close to being my number #1 coaster

    First Drop Intensity

    Best coaster at KD, however I haven’t ridden the Dominator because of the extremely long lines (maybe tomorrow!). First drop will def have you graying out-but it’s so fast you come out of that quickly, it is extremely jerky around the tight turns and angles, and will rattle your brain a bit-but by far the most intense coaster I’ve ridden (Which is what you want in a coaster, right?) A must ride for any coaster enthusiast that visits KD!

    Airtimes Pace Intensity

    This is probably the greatest coaster ever built. Sure there is coasters that are objectively better, but if you just want a good old school Intamin that will try to kill you in every way then you will like this ride. The pacing is insane since you stay low to the ground the whole ride and even the trim can’t kill the pacing. If the pacing isn’t enough then you have the crushing positives, I don’t grey out much but that first turn had me every time and even made me blackout once. And don’t sleep on the rest of this ride there were like 3 or 4 other moments I was greying out, I’m pretty sure I greyed out more on this one coaster than every other coaster I’ve ridden combined, I was literally seeing grey for half of the ride. The airtime was actually really good as well, the first drop and first hill are sustained strong ejector, the transition after the first hill somehow gives powerful ejector, and even the trimmed hill and the hill following manage to give flojector on a good ride. Also the s bends and pop into the brake run somehow give airtime ranging from strong floater to weaker ejector. So even though the ride doesn’t focus on airtime it still surprisingly excels in that category. And don’t even get me started on the whip. Those s bends and turn into the brake run whip u so ridiculously hard it feels like you break your neck, you can’t even see yourself turning you whip that hard it’s like you teleport. And also because this ride is just that insane you get airtime on these s bends. The ride doesn’t have the longest duration but it still feels long due to the amount of elite elements packed in and how physically draining the ride is, I rode it 3 times in a row once and after that I was just completely out of it. Also I don’t have any problems with the restraints either, yeah t bars would be nice but I don’t mind the ones it has. Overall this ride is seriously next level and in a league of its own. There is 4 main things I look for in a coaster: Pacing, Airtime, Intensity and Whip. I305 is the best coaster I’ve ridden in all of those categories except airtime and the airtime is still amazing so that’s why it is the best coaster I’ve ridden.

    Airtimes Harness Discomfort

    I was eleven when I first rode this ride, and the harness was VERY uncomfortable! I enjoyed the airtime on the first drop, but I kept my eyes closed from the first turn to the final brake run! Because of this, I didn't blackout. I know the harness was changed because of headbanging, but they need to fix the bottom of the restraint! It was tight enough to crush my gut during the ride! If I have to say ANYTHING about this ride, I would say that it is Kings Dominion's own version of Skyrush from Hersheypark! (Even though I haven't ridden that ride)

    First Drop Intensity Smoothness Airtimes Intensity

    As someone who visits Kings Dominion multiple times a year and has ridden this coaster so much I can't even count anymore, I suggest riding this roller coaster at least one time. The main talking point of the roller coaster is the intensity mainly after the first drop. This part of the ride is strange in my opinion, some days I feel there is just enough intensity and sometimes too much intensity. Be prepared for at least a grey-out during that turn, or if you are me, a nose bleeds (true story). Sometimes I wish you got a little more airtime in the hills, though you are going really fast so you would not feel as much even without the harness. This ride is not the most re rideable due to that intensity and I have had a trip ending early because of headaches that this ride has given my friends, which is why I say sometimes the intensity is too much. I suggest riding this last before you leave the park, and it is a really fun ride in the dark. Though if the intensity is not your thing, this may not be your favorite coaster.

    Pace Intensity Too short

    Now, it's been 5-6 years since I rode this and I really really want to ride it again. I'm all about intensity and I liked it, but I only clearly remember the first turn. I greyed out like most do. Compared to Millennium force and watching POV's again I-305 it's a little shorter and more intense. At the time, it was the best coaster in the park so we rode it 2 or 3 times before we got extremely tired which never happens! It's not Fury or Orion, but it's still world class.

    Airtimes Theming

    I rode this ride for the first time last year, on the fourth day of our trip to the USA. I love this ride it have what i need from a coaster like Airtime, Height and G Forces. Also it was not busy that day the longest wait for this coaster was 15 minutes so we dit it in the night like 12 times with 3 greay out moments that i never experiences at a rollercoaster before. It lacks on theming but that is almost every rollercoaster in America if you live in Euope. But this one is my number 1 for sure and a long time i think.

    First Drop Intensity

    this thing is honestly scary...looking up at it you legit start to have 2nd thoughts. the first drop/turn is no doubt the most intense thing ive ever experienced. the 2nd half of the track is amazing as well, roaring thru CRAZY laterals at MAJOR SPEED. Skyrush is my fav coaster but i305 does claim the title for best ride ive ever received. It was last day of season (late october during fright fest) at 9:55pm (last ride of day and season) in 36 degrees from the back row. just imagine flying thru the frigid darkness..surreal to say the least

    Fun Masterpiece Intensity Harness

    This is one of Intamin's truly elite coasters. The first turn after the 300 foot drop is guaranteed to make you grey out and the high-speed maneuvers that switch you from right to left provide excellent forces. The harness is a bit annoying but if it wasn't there I don't think I'd be writing this review right now.

    Pace Intensity Smoothness

    Whoever thought to combine Maverick and Millennium Force into one coaster was bonkers, and I don't know why they built it at Kings Dominion of all places, and yet here we are. Intimidator 305 is possibly the most intense roller coaster in the world. Huge positive Gs, enormous giga level speed, and relentless transitions all happen at the same time, and with the wind in your face in the front row, you'll be begging this ride for mercy. Thankfully, there are breaks of airtime between all of the intense moments, which is what makes this ride work, as it does have a little bit of remorse. The new soft collars are even better than the old ones, so my only complaint about this ride is now out the window. This coaster is absolutely ridiculous and will probably get torn down for a more tame B&M or Mack giga in the next 20 years, so let's enjoy it while it's still kicking our asses.

    First Drop Pace Intensity Harness Discomfort

    Intimidator 305 is extraordinarily intense, likely the most intense coaster on the planet. You WILL gray out, if not black out, around the first turn. Other than that, it's a series of high-speed turns. It's incredibly smooth, and incredibly fun. The one drawback is there is an unnecessary over-the-shoulder restraint. On occasion this will cause some headbanging around the tight transitions. The restraint is not particularly comfortable to begin with either. Overall, though, incredible ride.

    This ride is so intense and is so well paced. It’s my 3rd favorite coaster, but this ride needs more airtime, and I feel like it could’ve been a longer ride.

    Intensity Discomfort Dead spots

    I respect what this ride does. I got severe tunnel vision from the pullout of the drop all the way to the crest of the first airtime hill - that's some insane sustained intensity (to the point of discomfort and a bit of panic). But after that, it just seemed to durdle aimlessly to get back to the station. The transitions were whippy, but it was just long low turn after long low turn. I found it a bit monotonous; it's called the Maverick turns section, but there's so much more variety and better pacing on Maverick than just sharp transitions between s-curves.

    Pace Smoothness Harness Disappointing!

    I still say that this is one of the world's most overrated coasters ever. The intensity is massively overrated and I don't understand why people consider it to be so intense. The first turn around I grey out the same amount on a number of coasters, shoot even Back Lot Stunt Coaster! The layout is very bland in my opinion but also unique. I love the weird airtime/lateral hill, but the first giant hill and the back to back turn sections just don't do it for me. I do enjoy the airtime hills near the end but they're over so quickly. I think if this ride replaced the back to back turns with airtime hills, it would be one of my favorites. but for now it honestly feels like a less intense version of Maverick.

    Pace Airtimes Intensity

    Une note si basse sur Intimidator 305 mérite un peu d'explications... Bon évidemment quand on ride pour la première fois un tel monument on en attend beaucoup. Direction le dernier rang, lift rapide, mais... pas d'airtime sur la first drop. Bon. Arrive le fameux virage au ras du sol. D'ordinaire j'ai très peu de voiles sur les coasters, mais là... un voile noir total, je vois plus rien, et ça dure... Une intensité mal dosée, et en tout cas pas du tout agréable pour ma part ! Je ne suis pas pilote de chasse. Ensuite vient le point fort du coaster, des virages au ras du sol avec une grande vitesse, fun. Puis un bunny hop, peut être de l'airtime ? Non en fait il y a un trim si puissant que j'ai cru que c'était le frein final. Du coup toujours pas d'airtimes... En résumé: du gâchis !

    A coaster that is so intense that it is, legitimately, too intense for many people. It's a coaster that aggressively pushes the limits while somehow, even years later, remaining perfectly comfortable. When this ride debuted with hard restraints, it was a nightmare. Ever since the park switched to soft OTSRs though, I've been in love.
