It appears there are more triangular supports ready to install.
Edit:  Then again, after looking at the layout, there shouldn't be any of that size left.  From here on out, the supports get bigger and bigger..

There are a number of valleys where those pieces could go.

I think there are enough UK fans in the area where this tweet could be fun for them.  Having said that.... if Orion was going to be given a nickname like Big Blue, it should probably be the biggest blue in the general area at least.  JS

Lexington (and basically all of UK's market area) is in Kings Island's market area.  How is it a stupid tweet?

What are you talking about?? Cincinnati is in the tri-state area. If you aren't familiar with the Cincinnati area, it borders both Kentucky, and Indiana, and is split by the Ohio River. 

 

There is nothing "stupid" about the tweet. As anyone familiar with Cincinnati would understand, the connections between Indiana, Kentucky, and Ohio run very deep in the area.

Cincinnati has a far larger population of UK fans and alumni than one would think.  Just the Cincinnati chapter of the UK alumni association has over 10,000 active members.

Everyone hyped up I305 when I told them I was going to KD.  It was OK--just not all that.  Intense, kind of like a King sized Maverick.  But not hype worthy to me.  But I like Magnum XL-200 more than Maverick.  I think Orion will be a great ride and better than I305.  Sorry, @Maverick44

Yikes! Magnum over Maverick. Is there something wrong with you? haha :P

 

sorry for double post....its still early ugh!

Am I the only one that is wishing for a better camera placement? You can barely make out anything they are working on. I feel like they cheaped out by just turning the Banshee cam.

You did though, when you said I305 would be better. You went out of your way to make that comparison on page 24.

I enjoyed watching the MT cam when it was being built. It was right on top of the lift hill and you could see every bent going up in great detail.

That cam has to be the most boring cam of all time now haha It was fun during construction but now ….no thanks!

EDIT* I take that back......the worst one I have seen was the copperhead strike cam. It was about 90% blurry the entire time.

** I think we are about to see some track placed. Yellow crane looks like it might be up a section for break run / turn into station.

Do construction crews work 7 days a week?

I would say no. I really do not know though.

 

Looks like they may put ready to put up more supports for the turn into the station.

They seem to be laying something down under the station track. Looks yellow from the webcam.

Possibly something like this?  Taken from barton-supply.com:
