Orion Construction Photos

Recommended Posts

Loosely following this thread and WOW the brake run is up! Can’t wait to see in person! :D

I wonder how much of the lift they’ll have finished by “Closing Day”.

Some good closeups from WildGravityTravels update yesterday. The one photo has what appear to be the roof trusses and the yellow thing I predict to be the basket for the workers to bolt the pieces together.11911b8a7d6d7291a25ba62eeda8be04.jpg238f4904426dec16fb56b058d6c8dc50.jpg26c4eb9b8cd3b4b9059397197fb372d9.jpg2e58dbf0d7bde146e79529ed54b1afd1.jpg

Those last two pictures are fantastic! This thing is huge.

Oh, the jokes that could be made with that sentence...

On edit: Hey @malem, where are your up close pics?

Their real name is bowstring trusses. It’s a specific design that’s applied to arches.

Good pic! Pro tip, put your watermark in between the two cranes. Harder to 

  1. Remove the watermark
  2. Crop it out of the picture. 

I like this different perspective though.

I got some great views of the construction from WindSeeker, and Blue Racer yesterday!   Orion is looking good!  BTW, Blue Racer was running great.   Consistently faster that Red.

Yes I did my visit ride on Blue Racer but it was oddly rough.   That side has been like glass so far this year and not sure what was up....

I noticed that as well. The part they rebuilt has really helped and it was quick yesterday.

Leave it to the IT guys to take the system down the day the lift hill is going to be topped. :o

Just drove by Kings Island at 8:45. Both cranes at the construction site are vertical right now so they must be getting ready to do something... 

Btw, the giant white crane base is still in the parking lot.

Didn't realize there was no webcam or I would have taken some pictures for all the "hungry" people out there...
