  1. A wing would look so cool in that space. I wish for a wing over anything.
  2. Going to best buy to get a great deal on a Nikon D3500
  3. Got yall with the color track update.
  4. From the speculation to #KIWebCamBlackout to finished track....what a KIC off season
  5. Thats a great question. Im not sure in all honesty. But if B&M were really smart about it, the bolt fittings, should be universal and fit all gigas and maybe they can use them on the other gigas. The only problem is the distance between the spine and supports might be different. So Im not sure. Maybe they are thrown back in to the big lava pot at Clermont steel and melted back down who knows.
  6. When the remainder of they layout is put in, the coaster essentially leans on itself. Those supports were up to spread out the pressure on the spine, now that the other track and supports are up the pressure and weight is more evenly spread out
  7. First test is always recorded but never streamed. The first run is incredibly slow as the cold, soft wheels are ran on it and chance of valleys are higher. So the video will probs get posted but our time of Orion cam down isnt quite finished yet.
  8. We really talking bout this again. GIGA is a made up term. GIGA was created in an office with Cedar Point and intamins reps in a meeting back in 1998. Nobody sells a GIGA. Everybody just slaps a title on it.
  9. The parks hours are released at 3pm today. We will know for sure then.
  10. LaRosas pizza in Kings Island is an icon. Cincinnati pizza and they are a huge KI sponsor. Cmon now FOF96 sit down and eat a slice with me and lets talk this over hahaha
  11. Id say he speed hill as well. That a big helix and still have another airtime hill after the speed hill.
  12. CP has 4. SFGAV- 5 We tied with Buch Tampa & Seaworld with 3 a lot of parks have three.
  13. How tall def matters. B&Ms are loud. And the taller they are the louder they will come down flying through the drop. The article mentions Diamondback multiple times. Not Backlot stunt. They clearly did there research they know that Orion is the same company as DB and they know about the sand in the tracks.
  14. I like this point. When I first saw the Orion prints I was so surprised at the lift direction I really wanted to see a lift going up to the left of the tower. I bet this had some to do with it as those houses are to the left of the orion site
  15. Expand it towards Soak City not into river town again. Yea I wonder when they rip that log ride out and put a flat in. Wish Kings Island had a bigger log ride
  16. Thats a great idea! Put it over there. Or put it behind the petting zoo and expand a lil bit of Planet Snoopy
  17. I wonder how much it costed to bring that support down and then put it back up. Like its's probably pennies to the project but maybe 100-200 bucks like if you added up workers and crane use. Literally not a big deal just wonder if that's a thing. Anyone know?
  18. Hey thanks for keeping an eye out for me, cool having other enthusiasts help me out! I went to Procam because I know the owner and always told myself when I buy my camera I'm getting it in Cincy, didnt want to spend that money for a box in the mail wanted to go into a store lol. Anyways. ORION, anyone who hasnt seen it yet. When people say on here pictures dont do it justice. They really really dont. It's huge, very very steep. Gives Diamondbacks drop a bloated look. The coaster is definitely menacing.
  19. GREAT NEWS! I've been terrible at staying up to date with this. Lifes just crazy right now. Ill do it sunday. But!!!! Going to buy a new camera at Procam in Cincy and I'll get to see Orion for the first time tonight and I'm so hyped. Anyone going to be at the park tonight? I'm driving to Cincinnati for one night. Leaving buffalo after work at 12. Getting to Nati at 7 and then tomorrow morning turn right around. Going to be a wild few day but I'll update the "thingy" lol
  20. Woah woah woah. take a trip to darien lake. Watch the laser light show. You wont still want that over fireworks. The firework show is Iconic at Kings Island. Iconic. I dont care how boring or routine but its a major part.
  21. Yea I think it's hilarious and all in good fun. But I wonder if Chad and the Cedar Fair team love the parody of there 30 million dollar coaster. Small group of people called it Onion but now the GP is made aware. I bet it doesnt stay on twitter. I think the park will ask them to take it down.
