Orion Construction Photos

Recommended Posts

So, I see the lift and the station track, but has the pre-lift track been laid? To explain what I mean, I’ll use Diamondback as an example. Coming out of the station, Diamondback has a piece of straight track before ascending the lift (and afterwards, there is one piece that curves to start the lift). For Orion, I see straight track (station track and afterwards) and the lift track, but I’m having trouble seeing the track piece where the straight track angles and connects with the lift. It should theoretically be there as the lift has been started, but it’s hard to see. Thanks!

I would imagine the big crane will be put together to say the least.

 

EDIT: Looks like the white-blue crane is assembling the larger red one while the yellow crane is working on the brake run.

Good morning everyone. I have had a very long 3 day weekend. 2 weddings back to back days ugh.  Haha I am ready for a good week of Orion track installs.

I'm not sure I saw anyone confirm it, but these pieces stacked here are definitely going to form the roof of the station.  There were quite a few of these pieces stacked here.

I think it would be very neat if they paint gray with blue strip on the Flight of Fear and water tower to give Orion and Flight of Fear areas more spectacular. I used Photoshop to color it. ;)

Zeus is getting the top section of the crane installed right now. He may be able to be used by tomorrow or Wednesday!

@Hawaiian Coasters 325 we can't have every red crane named Clifford. The real Clifford is still out there on another job site. :D
