@Waltny Love to hear it.

I shoot weddings and ad campaigns but when i do eventually have downtime I love shooting coasters and trips. Love love love cameras and coasters

Those are excellent shots!

I imagine that if they are wanting to do a big media event for the topping off they will wait till tomorrow or Thursday for that since most news outlets will be busy with election coverage today and results tomorrow.

^ Look how vibrant the paint once was, they should really consider repainting in the near future.

Any ways very exciting to see the lift hill almost completed. Can’t wait to see how quickly progress moves after the lift is done.

Does anyone know the lift hill angle?

I think somewhere around 50 degrees. But I may be wrong.

I apologise for the blurriness, but here are some shots of Orion while going by the park this evening!

Yeah that first picture really shows how awesome the drop is going to be. It is definitely going to be amazing going down that hill with the B&M clamshell restraints as long as they don’t staple you in. I can’t wait for the craziness. I actually might be happy they staple me in the first time.

Did you notice how big the drop looked compared to Diamondback? Thanks for snapping these pics by the way!

Hey Y'all! I went and took some photos today. I'm for sure going back tomorrow early to hopefully see the lift hill topped off! Enjoy!

I’m pretty sure they have the rest of the lift and drop preassembled into one piece. Orion could very well be topped off tomorrow!

Wow look how much steeper Orion is than DB. That is shocking!

Anyone know the exactly angle of descent?

Dimondback's angle is 74 degrees, and Orion's is 85 degrees.

Long trains would result in longer, less snappy elements.

Yes but there is nothing like sitting in the back getting whipped over the hills.

After riding Nitro, the 4 across trains are my preference over the DB style on B&M hypers.   They really zip through the course.

Totally agree. Although they both have their perks, I prefer the 8x4 train to the 16x2 DB trains.

Plus it has a train engine in the front.
