Kings Island 2020 Finally Open Thread in Kings Island Posted June 25, 2020 6 minutes ago, bengalsguy23 said: In this case Orion’s going to suffer from having four across seating. Compare it to Diamondback. Both rides have a 32 rider capacity but with covid will be knocked down to 16 each. Now imagine a group of 6 comes up at both rides. In diamond back the groups can broken up into 3 sets of two leaving no empty seats. ( not including the ones that are being blocked off for social distancing). On Orion a group of 6 would be split into 3 and 3 or 4 and 2. Either way there’s gonna be extra empty seats that can’t be filled. If someone is in a group of two at Diamondback no more seats are lost. At Orion two seats are no longer filled. Now worst case scenario is a group of one. On diamond back you are loosing one seat but on Orion you are loosing three. With this in mind Orion’s capacity is going to be really bad even with quick dispatches. Has it been confirmed that they will space out parties on the trains? I’m only wondering because they are requiring everyone to wear a mask, including while on the ride. I went to Holiday World last weekend and they left two empty rows between each party, except Thunderbird (full capacity), but literally no one wore masks there.
