I believe that it will be an original soundtrack. Not a soundtrack from a song. If I were to take a guess on what they are producing, it'll likely be a space instrumental soundtrack.

Has it been released yet?

@KIghostguy Does it have more than 1 train on yet, or can you not tell that?

I couldn’t tell. There was about a five minute gap between the two cycles.

They are testing today. I just saw two cycles from my house.

Were you able to tell if it was just those 2 cycles or did they test anymore after?

Just my prediction, but I would imagine they would test each train individually and then add more trains later on in the testing.

I watched three altogether, then had to leave to go to a doctor’s appointment. They probably tested more. I just looked out the window and lo and behold, a train was going up the lift!

Interesting. Testing in these relatively high wind gusts. Good opportunity for testing in weather conditions that are always a possibility in this region.

I've been expecting an official POV any day now and this just came to my mind...

We probably won't see a POV of Orion until April

I cant remember if it was in a interview or if it was in the fury documentary but they have to be able to test it 500 times in a row before they can allow people to ride, even if they are at 499 cycles and somethings goes wrong, they have to start from the beginning.

Would 110%  not be surprised if they released a POV within days before or after the park opening. I would also imagine that they would want to fully develop the area around it before they post a video of it. Wouldn't look to good to post a pov of a ride WHILE it is still under construction. Though the track and systems may be complete, there is still work left to be done.

I believe that has been disproven on this forum before.

I think from the images I got they were all the same train. I’ll pixel peep and get in close before I say for certain.

I find the 500-cycle thing unrealistic,at least for them to be uninterrupted. 500 problem-free cycles in a row would be a challenge for any ride, let alone a brand new one figuring out any kinks.

I doubt that KI is running the actual wheels that the ride will normally use.  Usually testing happens on harder, nylon wheels before switching them out for softer wheels with a higher rolling resistance.

So what you are saying is that he soft wheels will make it faster or slower?

Actually, I believe in the GateKeeper documentary, they talked about how they run softer wheels for testing and then put the harder wheels on and run it with the harder wheels.

Yes they are on that last airtime hill. 

So we will have to see how much the trim affects the speed coming off that hill. My gut says it will slow it down at least a small amount.
