Orion Construction Photos

Recommended Posts

I took some photos of some footers and some molds from the Field of Screams queue.  Not the best because there’s very little light.  You can see that some of these footers are DEEP...the trench for one of them was at least 8 feet deep!

apparently Vortex was fabricated at CSF before they did B&M track

False, only the support structure was built by CSF, track was fabricated at Arrow Dynamic’s Utah facility

Has anyone seen any activity on the site this morning?  It looks like they might be taking a full weekend off for the first time in weeks.

I saw a couple white pick-up trucks driving through the site a few minutes ago, but they were headed down towards the other end.

It looks like the stream is bigger now. Maybe that's why that was one of the places they where digging?

Anyone know how fast this progress is compared to the other gigas? I watched a fury timelapse and it looked like they eere getting multiple track segments a day.

Has there been any rain that would cause the stream to get bigger  or any other water source??

Used the binoculars at Eiffel Tower, looks like someone is working on the mechanics under the lift hill.

There's a trick in which you can hold your phone to the eye piece of the binoculars and get awesome zoomed in photos if you do it right.  Try it out next time!

Great photos!  

For those who haven't seen it yet, this section is MASSIVE.  The photos don't do it justice.  You could even see it at night.  I'm excited!!

Maybe we can try to take a “panoramic “ from the tower. Lol. Right now too many scoping stuff out up there.

Is the current lift hill taller than The Racer hill? It seems like it is but it is hard to tell from the webcam.

Incorrect, wicked twister opened in 2002 at Cedar Point and exactly one year later top thrill dragster opened.

We got Carolina Cobra in 2009 and Timmy in 2010 but I guess it doesn't count if it's a relocated coaster.

I felt the same last night.  I knew it was a large section, but you don’t truly get the scale of it until you see it with your own eyes.  It is MASSIVE.
