In my opinion, if you ride in the back, Apollo is significantly better than i305.

As for Grizzly, I just rode a similar woodie that was much, much better; both are double out and backs. Great White at Morey's Piers is smooth and fast and has great airtime with intense turns and a fun drop. Grizzly seems rough and poorly maintained by comparison.

You really think so? I enjoy Grizzly rather much. Do I believe Grizzly should make top 50? Probably not however, it is quite comparable to many of the woodies displayed in the top 50. I rode Boulder Dash 3 years ago and thought it was fantastic! 2 months ago I made the trip back up and thought it was extremely rough. It shows people like some things over another. No, the Golden Ticket Awards may not seem accurate but to the many voting, it is. I305 is my #1 coaster. Is it re-rideable? No, not at all. 3 times in a row and you will need an Aleve and a nap. Just doesn't fit the criteria they are looking for. I enjoy the Golden Ticket Awards and hearing peoples rage comments, it amuses me. Besides, if you want a real top 50 list im sure Screamscape can find one to accommodate your likings Winking

I'd be dead. I need at least 15 minute breaks between each ride. I305 and Voyage at Holiday World are the two coasters I can not marathon.

Wow, really? I find it rather re-rideable and enjoyable I guess. I've stayed on for 3 in a row with 2 line walk-thrus to reride for a total of 5 in a row consecutive and didn't have any after effects. I love that ride.

That first turn gets me good. I've never had a grey-out on it like many people have but I definitely feel it. I always come off the ride a bit light-headed and need some time to recoup.

I really wish they would've had an overbanked turn in that spot like Millennium Force.

If I could get a smoother Grizzly, I think I would love it. Then again, I do count the trees as part of the thrill. The way Grizzly is right now, I think "Wow! Smooth as a B&M! ( after first drop or so) Ouch! am I still on the same ride?" Still fun though.

I agree that Apollo's Chariot is superior to Intimidator 305. I305 is a fantastic coaster, but it's so intense I can't ride it more than twice without taking a break. It's the only coaster for me that's not rerideable for reasons other than roughness. Apollo's Chariot, however, I could ride all day. Weeeee...
