Orion Construction Photos

Recommended Posts

As this thread is coming to a close, I want to say this has to be the most fun construction thread I have seen. I read through the Banshee and Mystic Timbers threads and I think this was better than those imo.

This, the Decoding 2020 Thread, and the Giga Speculation Thread account for three fulls years of speculation on this project. I can’t wait until the next construction starts! LOL!

A couple things that stick out to me...

1. I'm very surprised every row of the queue is available. I thought they would only allow every other row for social distancing purposes. You may be 6 feet away from the person in front of you, but only a couple feet from the person on the rail next to you.

2. Hard to tell from the video but it looks like they're allowing riders in each row. I'm also surprised by this; is each row 6 feet apart? I've read that's the case with wing coasters.
 

The rows are separated by a physical object above the riders’ heads, so I think that’s how they got away with Orion but not Mystic...

Oh man.  It's getting real now.  Less than 24 hours until I get to ride this baby.  Freaking stoked.

This is what I meant when I said this is my favorite Easter egg. Almost stokes the fire of the people who call this a tall hyper lol. They could've easily named it MF-2000 but they chose not to lol

Spoiler

Cool to see the prop house has included some of the teaser posters. Especially the historical Shooting Star photo from Coney. 

Spoiler for those not wanting any queue info.

I thought everybody was being forced to go the paper cup route this year due to Covid.
