Nice! The drop just looks so impressive! I also love how you are literally on the ground after the drop.

Fury's drop is 320' making for a 20' difference. Whether that 20' is perceptible would be up for debate, probably ever so slightly. But the steeper angle should make more of a difference!

The drop on Orion will feel more sudden for sure. It looks like it drops more suddenly then is indeed more steep. It should be a ton more airtime and a drop feeling, and the speed will be nearly as fast though I do anticipate Fury to still be faster of course. But Orion should feel more intense initially.  Also the next hill should be awesome on Orion and the Turnaround is higher than any other hill on Fury but I am possibly mistaken there.

Odd that my harmless post from yesterday joking about the white castle crane got deleted, seems pointless. Did that offend somebody somehow? Geez

I wish the cams were like Holiday World's where you can turn the camera.

Looks like Cleo just put in another piece of the drop/first hill.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think that was installed a little while ago. But it looks like there are two other pieces ready to be installed!

Here is what it looked like this morning at 8am.  There definitely are two pieces ready to go right next to it, just curious if they are already bolted together or will go in one by one.

Sorry if my post was a little misleading, by a little while ago I meant earlier today before TheFloppyDisc's post.

Wait you can move them yourself? I checked it out but seems to not be working?
