Orion Reviews

Sounds like I really need to ride at night and/or in the back. Not had that pleasure yet. In terms of the Millie comparison, I still have to give Millie the nod for a few reasons. The sprawling cloverleaf layout makes all those long fast turns cover so much real estate and really get you turned around so that it's hard to keep track of what's next. Just this year (1st rode in 2002) was I finally able to remember the order of each element. A big reason why I've always loved The Beast. It is also smooth as glass after all these years-I don't think I'd feel comfortable hopping right back on Orion after getting off. Could ride MF all day. Also, despite having a lower ride height that allows my 7 year old daughter to ride (her new fave), the 2-seater trains with that little lap bar give such an exposed feeling and connection to the track. JMO of course.

i recently rode orion and really enjoyed this attraction. it's smooth, fast, and has a stunning color scheme on the eyes. i really only had one major complaint about it, the pre-show.

first off who wants to watch a pre show on some small tv before riding a giga coaster? you see this huge ride and are about to get on and then it's like jk you have to go into this hot little box and watch a tv? who thought that was a good idea? it absolutely kills the pacing, and no one was even remotely watching it. it's also way too clean cut and happy, it also does a terrible job at explaining the story of the ride. are we going on a simulator? are we about to ride a roller coaster? are we recruits? why are we here? there's some massive plot holes, they should've built off the FOF lore. 

anyways, ride is sweet, pre show sucks. anyone else feel the same way?

I've never seen the whole thing and don't need to. It's just people talking and the line usually moves too fast to let you see it. I do like the theming inside the building, especially the references to old rides. Building off the FOF lore would have been cool. They did bring back a character from that for the official audio that's played in Area 72 which is great.
