It's a nice clear day out for the webcams. I'm not sure if they are working today though. I cant believe we are almost to the speed hill! They have been speeding through lately!

They usually get Sundays off, so I would think not. However, I think it’s likely the speed hill gets completed by the end of the upcoming week.

Very happy that they readjusted the cam so that the entire ride is in view rather than it cutting off the station area.
Makes me wonder if it's manually adjusted and you can't for-sure tell where it's pointing lol

edit - I'm aware I'm not the first to notice it; just been sitting on that desire for awhile :p

It is manually adjusted and it's not like Cedar Point's webcams where they can move them anywhere they want at anytime. I'm sure this will be the final "move" of the webcam.

I happen to be schooled online at home on a regular computer so I can check back and forth here and there. Back when I was in public school, I would get yelled at every now and then for looking at coaster updates on the chromebook when I was supposed to be working on school stuff.

Been there done that for about 5 years.

I swear all of the track work might be done by the end of February or even January if they keep this up 


Thank the warm Winter this year. Usually, it’s bitter cold at this point.

The turn around appears to be a bit tighter in diameter and much higher banked than what was shown in the renderings.

What do they use to make the renderings anyways?

Of course the DB cam is all blurry just like the Carowinds Copperhead strike cam was all winter long. We won't get to see much of Vortex's removal.

This was surely already brought up, but doesn't Kings Island have ANYONE under their employment that knows how to change the NAME of the cam from "Kings Island Banshee" to "Orion"???!!  :rolleyes:

Also, "Diamondback cam" is down/not working for me...

I don't see how people find other coasters being opening this year to be more exciting. Who doesn't love a 85 degree 300 foot drop with possibly more airtime moments than fury?

#Intamin #Pantheon =) lol

 

Also DB cam is working for me......I just don't understand why they make the cams blurry on purpose. You can't tell me the other 2 cams just didn't get dirty like this one. They don;t want us seeing Vortex being removed and also want to keep cams up. I think its a filter they can use somehow.

Iron Gwazi seems to be one of if not the most anticipated coaster opening next year. Beyond vertical drop hyper hybrid from RMC. Pantheon looks really good too!

Kind of forgot about Iron Gwazi, but Pantheon is right behind Orion at #3 in my top new for 2020 list. Iron Gwazi is at first and Orion is at second. Sorry Maverick :D

Its ok! We can't all be right. I forgive you lol :P

Pantheon's outer banked turn was just completed and it looks INSANE...many enthusiasts are focused on Iron Gwazi and sleeping on Pantheon. I still think Orion is gonna be a pleasant surprise for everyone, however.

Pantheon's been number 1 on our 2020 wish list since it was announced with Iron Gwazi number 2 and Orion coming in 3rd.

 

On topic, now that we have the turnaround almost completed, how are those here comparing it to Fury's turnaround? Obviously it is in reverse and doesnt have that dip going into the peak, but it does look like it is more aggressively profiled at 45 feet taller. I think its going to be hard even at behind the scene events to get a angle to manipulate the perspective to get it to look like a treble cleft or ampersand regardless for a more apples to apples comparison.  
 

I grabbed a screenshot from the last KI video for comparison as this is an angle none of us could have legally gotten at this time.

The turnaround is almost done is they are about to do the speed hill.
