    With track work now complete, the Orion construction live-stream camera will be shut down beginning this evening (Feb. 6) through the end of March. Be sure to check out Kings Island's official Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube channels to watch new time-lapse footage of Orion being constructed tonight at 7 p.m.

    Got a few shots this morning. Can confirm PVC electrical pipe. But look who else was on top of the Eiffel Tower snapping photos. No clues or hints.

    PSA: The decoding thread will be locked after tomorrows announcement, then the construction thread will be for construction updates. Once we have the official press release, I will create an announcement thread of the new ride info and it will be become the general discussion about it.

    @malem and I have asked very nicely and multiple times in the last few days to stay on topic, to be respectful, and for the language to be family friendly. At this point we continue to see this being ignored. We will be cleaning up this thread to the topic at hand. Anyone who continues to not follow these simple rules will be getting a warning and possible loss of posting privileges. We have hesitated on taking this harsh of a stand. Guys, we are in the middle of making history at Kings Island with what appears to be the biggest investment ever. KI may not get another investment like this for decades. Are you going to remember and celebrate it with your KIC family, or are you you going to possibly miss out because you did not agree with someone's post?

    Posters are currently up. If they were down, it was temporary.

    Here are photos from today's flight over the construction site and the steel fab site. Took at least 400 photos, here are a snippit of them. Enjoy, -Captain Nemo (Gabriel)

    Low ridership? Don't be fooled by wait times. Adventure Express is a high capacity ride and annually ranks among the top attractions in the park for ridership.

    Thank heavens. We can use fewer overly-entitled passholders at the park. (Not my creation but spot on)

    Look what I just found! Just kidding, I made it. But I wouldn't be surprised it we see something similar.

    The blue track is real! You could see blue track inside the barely open door and some laying out back. I dig the color

    I am extremely excited to officially announce Kings Island: A Ride Through Time, authored by yours truly! This will be the first book ever written about the history of Kings Island! It will be released in early May 2020 by Theme Park Press to coincide with the opening of Orion and will feature exclusive interviews with the executives that have shaped the park through the years. I am very excited to share this news with you all, and to keep you updated through this process. I really can’t wait to share this book with the public next year!

    Here are a few from inside the park tonight. Shot from the entranceway of Urgent Scare. Shot from the antique autos right after Killmart exit Shot from the end of the course area of antique autos. Last one just for fun as we were coming in the park after opening with some of the Haunt atmosphere.

    Your entire post is very well said, @BoddaH1994. Since 2009, Cedar Fair will have installed four roller coasters that are reliable, comfortable to ride, have huge throughput, and are marketable to a regional population well beyond their first year. In addition to that, their other additions have been aimed at improving an overall guest experience. Those additions all beat Tomb Raider, Italian Job, and Son of Beast by almost every metric. Kings Island (and by extension Cedar Fair) couldn't care less whether this ride is taller, faster, better, etc than any of the chain's other coasters. That's completely and totally irreverent. They're not worried about attracting ACERS, TPR folks, or YouTube reviewers (cause ya'll are gonna show up anyways), they want the suburban family with expendable income to come, purchase a pass, have a good time, find value, and spend more year after year. And by all indications—that strategy is working out quite well for them.

    With all the things going on in the world we need something to keep us positive and cheerful. We will use this thread to brighten everyone's day. I know we have some separate threads for some of this, but let's use this one to post anything positive to support our fellow KIC members while we wait for thing to get back to normal and the toll gates to open. We can post about all parks not just KI in here as well. Post your favorite: POV's Coaster and park pics Coaster YouTube videos (no self promotion) Positive quotes (not religious or political) Anything you think might brighten another KIC members day. *Anything negative at all will just be removed at the discretion of the admin team. I will start with this picture on KMAA. I can not wait to replicate this pic with Orion in the background.

    I’m definitely a member of the camp in which I don’t care about the stats as long as it is a great ride experience.

    I've been lurking around this thread since nearly the beginning, and with the announcement just a few days away, I decided it was finally time to make an account and join in! Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it to KI this year, but I did have the opportunity to go to Carowinds for the first time. Fury 325 is an amazing ride, and I can't wait to have a giga at my favorite park!

    So to be clear for the sake of people not having to scroll back so far, Coney Mall with select rides, games, and restaurants will be open until 10p on Thursday. I have also been informed that they will be staffing someone from admissions until 10:00, so you can still enter the park after 8:00. As far as people booing the stats and stuff, the best thing I can tell you is to don’t be “that guy.” If they ride offers a good experience, then who cares about the stats? Also, and I have to admit that I skipped about 10 pages of reading but I’m sure it’s noted that in today’s conference call they mentioned that they were investing $120,000,000 in rides next year. That’s a lot!! Even if our coaster is $30 million (which I doubt) that still leaves a ton of room - despite the fact that most parks haven’t announced yet. If they were big cap ex’s we’d probably know. I think there might be some sort of show element to our giga that sets it apart. Not like “the shed” or anything like Haggrets, but maybe a show/queue building like FOF’s. There is that “prop building” that the line goes through. Wouldn’t that be cool??

    Why the hate on those restraints? I think they are some of the best restraints.
