Using @jdf21972 photo, here is my best shot at what Orion's lift will look like from that angle.

I believe it'll be noticeably taller from this vantage point, but not to the point that it dwarfs Diamondback.

Everyone please stay calm about the webcams. Sometimes the answer you get is the truth. Here is a statement I received from the park.

Quote

Our three park webcams are currently not operating while we prepare for WinterFest, make technology improvements and system upgrades. We are working to make these improvements as quickly as possible, but we do not have a timeline for its return.

Sooo anyone wanna take a guess how tall Orion is now? Are we as tall as Vortex today?

Probably pretty close to Vortex. Around 150 maybe.

As much as I don't like not having the webcams available. I am willing to accept that the park has reasons for it and I will patiently wait for them to come back in the next several days hopefully.

I will say with not having the webcams up, when somebody posts a picture of the construction it is pretty exciting.

Reminds me of the days of the Decoding 2020 thread =)

Several things:

1. Thank you @Hawaiian Coasters 325 for the update. Orion's progress is really coming along!:D

 

2. I think, just by reading the last few pages of forums, that lots of people are REALLY upset about the webcams are down. Trust me, I am too. But remember, there was a time when webcams didn't exist, and all people could do is stay tuned to newspapers and TV stations for potential updates on anything with the park. Not only that, but we should be THANKFUL that the park is generous enough just to provide webcams not just for the park, but just a live view of the construction. I think we should all calm down and wait for the webcams to come back up. They probably will soon enough and we will get right back to watching Orion come together!

This thread has now been cleaned up. Please stay on topic of the construction. 

The park has shared with us the status of the web cams that you can read in my last post in this thread. 

Yes, having the webcams down is a bummer, but we can do this the old-fashioned way until Kings Island gets the webcams back up.

The saying "you don't know what you have until it's gone" really applies to the webcams right now.

Getting back on topic. Here is a video from today! You can already see it from the parking lot!
 

Was that you in the parking drop off I saw today? I drive a Toyota Highlander.

Yeah. They are feeding a whole bunch of people in different states. 

Artemis does appear to be picking up quite a bit of track.
