Was a sad day for me last night. Finally got around to showing my wife the POV and all the hype for Orion. She didn't go to the reveal party. (Off Topic: my 15+ year old cat is named Orion, so I was pretty stoked for the name).
She watched the POV and afterwards said..."A bigger Diamondback, I just don't see the hype". I was pretty deflated.
She made the determination that Storm Chaser is her favorite coaster this summer (I don't get that either...over 200 credits and she goes with Storm Chaser as her #1???).
That seems to be the theme when I've talked to / overheard the GP. That Orion is going to be similar to DB. I'm honestly disappointed that CF/KI didn't do a little better than this. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited for a new coaster, but I question the decision to go with such a bland layout. Not to mention the 80' something foot tall brake run.
Pic is for the obligatory cat tax. Yes he is the OG Orion.
