  1. Two photos for your consideration. The first one was taken last week, and the second about 30 mins ago. I report, you decide...

  2. I suspect, and hope, they will install pavers back there. At the Orion announcement, I took note that the concrete was cracking/breaking up in places. I noticed this because I saw a kid pick up a broken piece of concrete and throw it! So replacement/repair was needed.

  7. Anyone ever wonder what goes through the minds of the crew that tears down these historical structures? Like, I understand there are probably some who have zero feelings or thoughts about it since it’s just another job/pay check, but I can’t imagine there not being a single person feeling sad about tearing down so many memories. And very likely I’d imagine there has to be at least one member on the crew with their own memories of the ride. That always crosses my mind any time these types of demolitions occur.

  9. Most enthusiasts expected props, screens and sounds--which is what we got. There was wild speculation about drop tracks, reverse launches and the like. But if people were disappointed, they set themselves up for it. But, this has been discussed ad nauseum, and this is a Orion thread, so no sense debating it again! [emoji6]

  10. Looking back at still images from the weatherbug camera, Loop 1 went down between 9:30 and 9:45 this morning

  12. Oh dear- IMO, it is kinda obvious what is gone. TIP: Look above Boo Blasters in both pictures. With the 2 Corkscrews not visible from here in either picture, it is possible that 2nd loop is the last remaining inversion of Vortex still standing.

  15. One thing I really enjoy about Orion is just knowing it will be here to enjoy for many years to come. I went to KI maybe 4 times this year with different people and many of them were ready to leave around 2-4 pm(we always got early entree when no one was there and just lapped around the park finishing around 12). With Orion I’m sure we’ll stay this year much longer and hopefully till night for The Beast. Orion will be a solid addition to this park that lacks a just one good coaster to be a all day park and Orion will fill that spot perfectly. It’s nice to know that if we feel like we’re done w

  16. Going into its 6th year, Coasterstock gets more popular each year and has become a staple event for coaster enthusiasts from around the world. For the hundreds of guests that are attending, they are in for hours of morning and evening ERT on the park's favorite coasters. Other items on the itinerary of the event include a catered lunch one day and dinner on the next, guest speakers, behind the scenes tours, photo contests, and scavenger hunts. The most important part of Coasterstock are the memories and friendships that are created at the event. We have even had at least one marriage from a co

  18. Every year we take my sons photo in this spot so we can watch him grow over the years. Let's just say the next few years the photos should be rather interesting.

  19. What lesson would they learn? The shed is a great ending to a story line on a themed coaster. I, and many other people, rather enjoy the intricate theming they put into the coaster.

  24. I wanna see it move! Is it too early to put trains in the storage shed ? lol yeah i know it is. Just wishful thinking since they don't need to work on those trains.

  28. According to the animation, here is the supposed Quonset Hut building in the queue. It looks like the standard queue roof that is in queue lines like Mystic Timbers and Copperhead Strike.

  30. From what I have heard on Facebook from a Kings Island employee. The loop was the first loop and that it came down at approximately 9:43AM today.

  33. In some bleak hope of of being mislead by Kings Island PR, I think it has finally set in that there will be a large sum of emptiness in the back of the park this year. Let’s hope now that whatever shall take it’s place be as equally or greater as an icon as Vortex. May it also bring us new memories that are as good as that blue and orange steel Phoenix that rose from the ashes of The Bat. Amen

  39. Most likely, Hicon has been contracted and they do paver work so it’s somewhat likely that’s what they’ll do.

  40. As a former Vortex crew member it made me really upset when I heard they were tearing it down. The people I worked with on that crew were texting eachother and upset, so I can confirm there are a lot of people who care.

  42. Considering that is (was) the entrance and that tree was just to the midway side of the train shed part of the station, I'm gonna say the entire thing was downed at once.

  46. Also, in reference to a few pages back. We still have the mysterious prop building that the queue allegedly goes through. I have been lead to believe that something goes on in there.

  47. Man, I hope they really amp up the aesthetics for this coaster. Textured lighting, LED lights on the lift hill and supports, maybe even that LED light strip along the lift hill catwalk like Fury 325 and Intimidator!
