  1. I get what you're saying. My point is this. Would Fury be any less of a ride experience if the ground under the lift were 30 feet higher. Same drop and remainder of the coaster bsing the same. I'm holding off any judgment on Orion until I ride it. At this point I guess I'm at an "advantage" over others. I have not had the opportunity to ride Fury or Leviathan. Therefore I can only compare pov videos. Fury looks amazing and then kinda fizzles out. Levi looks good. Orion looks like it'll be full out from drop to brakes. That fan turn looks sick. Can't wait to ride them all. Not comparing I305 or Millie intentionally. Going foot a straight apples to apples comparison. Those 2 look awesome as well
  2. Here's my take. We get everyone together and dig a hole under the peak of Orion's lift that is 81' deep. Now we have the tallest giga in the world at 368'. The we take the dirt from that hole and build a 40' hill under Fury's lift, 10' under Leviathin's and the rest under Millie. Now we have the only "giga" in north America. I mean it would cost to much to ship the dirt to Japan for steel dragon. But hey with my plan, Orion is now the only "true giga" as well as tallest in the world by this definition. That is how stupid this argument is. People are arguing this thing isn't a giga because of a stat that could change with a backhoe and 30 mins of excavation. Drop is the most important stat anyway. I've yet to met a single person sya that the observation platform of the ET is more thrilling and exciting than the first drop of Diamondback.
  3. I would live to see any campground, private or park owned, nearby again.
  4. Ok, new theme idea. If the park decided to put a 20 foot deep impact crater under the peak of the lift hill, would that make the haters happy? I mean it would then be 307' right???
  5. Guess they wanted to try the spaceballs marketing. Can't wait for Orion the breakfast cereal
  6. Same reason the drop on Invader at BGW is enclosed.

    Right, wish I had that kinda budget. Lol On another note, just noticed something I guess I never thought of untill this teaser campaign. Just seen @sixohdieselragetwitter post with an arial photo of SoB. Is it just me or does the helix kinda resemble an impact crater. There's everyone's SoB tie-in. Lol
  9. We'll be there probably around 1700. Kids have back to school orientation then we're heading down. Can't wait.

    I'm referring to the part of the footer the backbone attaches to the face of. I just looked at the pics I took Saturday and it's not there yet. I can't find the image in the plan pics I have to show it. I'm aware the base is there. What I'm referring to is the cap(I guess) that is a 50 deg angle that defined the lift angle. Sorry if this is confusing, confused myself typing it. Lol

    Yeah, I'm not looking for any surprises in the layout. Not counting it out at this point but highly doubting it. Lol. But, something to ponder. I do not recall seeing the base of the lift backbone being poured yet. Could it be a possibility that the lift angle could change (which would raise the height) without changing the footing locations. I'm not an engineer by any means. If you're laying on the ground bleeding, I'm your guy. But I just ride coasters, dont design or build them. Hahaha. I guess I'm trying to say, could they have changed the lift angle at some point (obviously a while ago) and then either decided to or inadeverntantly file the plans with the incorrect angle. Not sure if that is possible. I'm sure the armchair engineers in this forum will tear this apart but I am genuinely curious about it. Could be the reason for all the "mistakes" in the posters and blog posts. Just a theory though
