Here are my pics from yesterday. Didnt take any professional camera up. Just with my S9+. Plus, was a little bumpy. Watermarked because some people. And these definitely are "exclusive". 

Why wait?

Anyone that does not work at the park or in the industry is the GP.

I wanna see it move! Is it too early  to put trains in the storage shed ? lol yeah i know it is. Just wishful thinking since they don't need to work on those trains.

Sorry for the double post, but it looks like they have dug up all of the concrete that used to be in X-base. Looks like they might be doing some nice touch-ups to the whole area.

I suspect, and hope, they will install pavers back there.

At the Orion announcement, I took note that the concrete was cracking/breaking up in places.  I noticed this because I saw a kid pick up a broken piece of concrete and throw it!

So replacement/repair was needed.

Most likely, Hicon has been contracted and they do paver work so it’s somewhat likely that’s what they’ll do.

is there any possibility for a shed style mystery anymore or did they learn their lesson from Mystic?

What lesson would they learn?  The shed is a great ending to a story line on a themed coaster.  I, and many other people, rather enjoy the intricate theming they put into the coaster.

Most enthusiasts expected props, screens and sounds--which is what we got.  There was wild speculation about drop tracks, reverse launches and the like.  But if people were disappointed, they set themselves up for it.  But, this has been discussed ad nauseum, and this is a Orion thread, so no sense debating it again!

Any idea what they did for loose articles during the Mystic Timbers first rider event? 

The lockers outside MT were free for the event.

Did I read somewhere months ago that Orion would receive the Yukon Striker automated bin system?

The VP of maintenance and construction at Canada's Wonderland said he was talking to Jamie Gaffney about using the system on Orion back in October. I haven't heard anything since.

I never worry about lose articles. Apple Watch for the win. 
 

As a seasoned amusement park visitor 25 plus visits every year of my 32 year life I have learned travel light. 

Yes

 

never, ever bring a bag to an amusement park. That is what cargo shorts were invented for in 1967.
