  1. Not sure if this has been mentioned but something like Taiga at Linnenmaki Finland would be a really neat coaster. I’d rather have a traditional lift like maverick and a beyond 90 degree drop though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. See one is a intamin giga and the other a b&m giga, they design their drops differently. I think Orion will compare more to Fury’s then i305 since it’s the same company. Orion may have a little more ejectory feeling going down because it’s steeper while also being 20 feet shorter. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. If you’ve ever been to Cedar Point GateKeeper has sand in track and probably Valravn. It feels the same. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. One thing I really enjoy about Orion is just knowing it will be here to enjoy for many years to come. I went to KI maybe 4 times this year with different people and many of them were ready to leave around 2-4 pm(we always got early entree when no one was there and just lapped around the park finishing around 12). With Orion I’m sure we’ll stay this year much longer and hopefully till night for The Beast. Orion will be a solid addition to this park that lacks a just one good coaster to be a all day park and Orion will fill that spot perfectly. It’s nice to know that if we feel like we’re done with the park, Orion will always be there for one more ride.
  5. WCPO has a little aerial footage from the helicopter today in here.
  6. I hope they’re getting some pictures to post to Kings Islands social media.
  7. I’m sorry if you all have seen this before, I haven’t really been following along on the deconstruction but I’ve scrolled up some and haven’t seen this picture on here. I don’t know the source
  8. This looks like it could be the view from Coney Mall.
  9. It would be really cool to see that so sure! But it’s not my picture and was taken from the article mentioned above. Technically belongs to Kings Island but you can do whatever you want with it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. well now we have some sort close up picture of the turn around. Taken from the article above. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Can anyone tell what the people on the roof of the station are doing?
  12. Hear me out on this but trims on that camelback might be a good thing. It means Kings Island and b&m anticipate some high forces with the helix. If there were no trims then it would show that Kings Island and b&m are not expecting much force from the helix. If it ends up being okay then the trims will be off.

  13. Leviathan has trims on both of its big camelbacks I heard they don’t do to much though
  14. Great video! Would you mind putting it on Steam workshop though? I’d just love to see the ride from new perspectives. It’s fine if you don’t want to. Edit: just saw it in the description, thanks!
  15. Love the photo! It’s great to see these close shots after watching the webcam for so long.
  16. Can anyone tell what they’re doing right now? I think I see some track by the crane.
  17. I’ve ridden Fury this spring and everything after the dive into the tunnel feels very bland. Everything else before that is absolutely perfect though.
  18. Can anyone tell how low/where the track is right now?
  19. Did we ever find any speakers that would be in the queue from the blueprints? It would be neat if Orion had its own soundtrack like how Mystic Timbers does.
  20. https://www.instagram.com/p/B6dTEiFhsdL/?igshid=1u4wwmq8hn29s great photo from Kings Island Instagram
  21. Here is a great video by CPFoodBlog. They have many great pictures.
  22. It would look nice but not needed mostly because Orion goes through the woods not the entrance of the park.
  23. yea my bad guys I was in a rush and didn’t cite the source. I’ll do it next time.
