I kind wish the lift was steeper. 

Really? Why?

Kings Island Dr is backed up onto I-70 currently and I am coming from Indianapolis

 

It is absolutely slammed tonight. They are still working on the lift right now as well (in the dark)

I’m going to guess tonight’s large crowds are due to tomorrow’s impending rain.

Oh, and Orion looks fantastic!

They are under a time crunch and have to work overtime to get the lift topped off before that software update finishes installing.  ;)

Not to mention the "software update" is causing the dining passes not to work cuz they was last used last weekend? Lol

The park said in an interview that it’s a 50 degree lift hill. You realize how steep that is, right?

Yeah, 40 degrees less than a perfect 90 degrees.  :(

Ok. Even though it doesn't make any sense to me since the crane's boom is not even white. 

The lower part of the boom is white. The upper lattice part is red.

I think yours has a few more rattles.  Therefor more realistic.  

The term is "derailments".

A popular element and park staple in my Roller Coaster Tycoon parks. The guests always leave happy! Guests have caught on in my Planet Coaster parks, though. :(

I thought the initial 7-10 feet of the drop was nearly straight and more vertical than the following. If so, then the lift hill would be just a little taller than I see in your renderings, which are great. But that first 7 feet is 85 degrees.

Last one just for fun as we were coming in the park after opening with some of the Haunt atmosphere.

This is a dumb question, but are the crews working today with it being a weekend? Anyone at the park today?

I'm heading up tomorrow. They might be working? They might want to get the drop up quick.
