It's Racers turn around.

Two different coasters here.  The red is the circle in the original post - disregard that.  The coaster in orange is The Racer's turnaround (left is Blue Racer's turnaround, right is the Red Racer's turnaround).  The coaster I circled in blue is Vortex.

So I had a dream last night that I was riding Orion for the first time. Does anyone else have dreams about Orion? April just can't come soon enough!

Were you riding with John Mattress in your dream?  ;)

Lol nope. Instead I was riding with my mom who is terrified of heights and falling from them. I did joke about John Matarese before I went to bed last night. Our wifi was out and I was like: "I think we should try and have it make the news. I know someone who can report on it (referencing John M)." lol

The two drops of water are killing me!! New track is going in and a drop of water is keeping us from seeing it!

I concur with this post. There are cranes I can see. I'm assuming more of the overbank is being installed, and I can't see it because of a perfectly placed rain drop!!

One would think that the winds were so strong at that height that the rain drops would be gone in a matter of minutes, yet it has been on there for well over 2 hours.

Unless of course there is no wind today!!

Waterdropgate 2019! 

 

edit: about 10 minutes ago I saw the flatbed truck driving the next piece of blue track towards the cranes. 

I curse you drops of H2O!!!

The water drops are evil.  Pure evil.  

edit: You can see they just put in more track but its super blurry!  Still cool to see them rolling along though!  And can't say that King's Island didn't try to get us a better view.

The curse has been broken!!

Man....look at that Hill into that huge wave turn?  Absolute perfection.  I think this is gonna be an amazing, flat-out amazing coaster, and it will take such a crowd that Banshee, DB, Beast, and Mystic Timbers should be easier than ever to get on! All good things. But mostly, the grace of that downhill into the wave turn is so pretty!

Wave turn isn’t completed, but they have created it and are now starting the downslope. Cameras are working good for me.

I agree with how amazing this coaster is. I really do think it is going to blow away all the naysayers. The only ride i think it will have no affect on is Mystic Timbers.

Let's see here:

Mystic Timbers: 108 ft tall, 56 mph, just over 3,000 ft.

Orion: 287 ft tall, 300 ft drop, 91 mph, over 5,000 feet long. GIGA COASTER.

There is no way Mystic will top Orion. Not trying to be a stickler, but think it through...

Plus, Orion is the only giga coaster that focuses on airtime. Rides like Fury and Leviathan are more about the low to the ground turns. Most people enjoy airtime, which is why I think Orion will be the best giga coaster, even if it is small in every giga way.

EDIT: The whole stats side of the argument, not trying to sound GP. It is just kind of obvious that it will be better than Mystic.

I seem to remember tall hills and a huge turnaround. Now i305 is focused on low to the ground maneuvers.

Right; but all of fury’s hills do stay low to the ground though@Maverick44, after that weak 2nd turning hill, it’s all lateral airtime hills, and a large helix with a head chopper

I'm talking about the parts after the drop and first turn.

Still not i305 low lol

I305 is definitely lower to the ground, but both Fury and I305 are speed coasters that stay relatively low to the ground unlike most B&M hypers which have big hills and focus on floater artime.
