    In this case Orion’s going to suffer from having four across seating. Compare it to Diamondback. Both rides have a 32 rider capacity but with covid will be knocked down to 16 each. Now imagine a group of 6 comes up at both rides. In diamond back the groups can broken up into 3 sets of two leaving no empty seats. ( not including the ones that are being blocked off for social distancing). On Orion a group of 6 would be split into 3 and 3 or 4 and 2. Either way there’s gonna be extra empty seats that can’t be filled. If someone is in a group of two at Diamondback no more seats are lost. At Orion two seats are no longer filled. Now worst case scenario is a group of one. On diamond back you are loosing one seat but on Orion you are loosing three. With this in mind Orion’s capacity is going to be really bad even with quick dispatches. 

    Has it been confirmed that they will space out parties on the trains? I’m only wondering because they are requiring everyone to wear a mask, including while on the ride. I went to Holiday World last weekend and they left two empty rows between each party, except Thunderbird (full capacity), but literally no one wore masks there.

    Great and then who monitors the big crowd outside the main que entrance trying be the next person that is allowed in line?

    I think this is one of the reasons they are requiring the app with location services turned on, to monitor large crowds that form and deal with them accordingly

    So based off this view and riding The Racer you are able to tell that the footings perfectly matchup. You must have eaten a lot of carrots growing up for that eye sight.30b4b482d60d43ab88d4b23d8426ea89.jpg
    I’m not saying that for sure things will be different. All I am trying to say is there are a lot of things that have been weird about how this all came together. The changing of the posters has me rethinking what we believe is to be true. It’s all in good fun!

    You know there are high quality pictures and videos of the staked out footers, right? Not everything has to been seen in one second on Racer.

    Also, It really itsnt hard to see the obvious pattern in the stakes, and now drilled and poured footers. If you have spent time studying the blueprints like I have then you are able to immediately recognize where the helix is, the turn around etc. when you do see the stakes. 

    Anyway, we will get an announcement soon I'm sure and then everyone will know.

  4. It doesn't matter if the blueprints were approved and if they have the ability to change them if they wanted, the point is they aren't going to. The footers/footing are all staked out. Every single one, and a lot of them are now also poured. If you look at the layout we have, approved or not, it matches perfectly to what is happening at the construction site.

    This is not correct. We know nothing about footing locations for anything past the station and drop. The blueprints with the footing locations for everything past the drop have not been filed (at least under project X).

    We don't have the exact footing coordinates like we do for the station, but we do have a complete layout that has supports and footers pictured, and if you go ride Racer and look at all them staked out (plus all of them near the turn around that are also poured) they match perfectly to the blueprints

    Don’t the blueprints fit the land clearing almost perfectly?

    And every single footer all the way out to the turn around. Most of those have already been poured too. They would literally have to dig up each footer and have filled fake prints that real people with real jobs wasted their time reviewing, approving and working on. It's not gonna happen guys.

    Mayne with the new coaster they will add a FoF sign. Doesn't have to be on blueprints.

    The sign for the new coaster isn't on the blueprints either. I really hope FOF gets a sign

    We are looking to deep into this but it’s teasers, we are supposed to do that. In the blueprints it shows three pieces of track for the transfer station so we are probably gonna have 3 trains


    Good eye. I think that can pretty much confirm 3 trains

    Hmm maybe we are reading into the numbers on the posters a little too much? Maybe that is the capacity of FoF per hr.

    Yeah I wouldn’t take anything to heart, it’s all in fun. 

    But last night I had specifically mentioned to a friend that I had seen a 1,200/hr rider capacity on the blueprints while we were discussing something else, so today when I seen it on the FOF teaser it jumped out at me. It is probably nothing but I thought was worth pointing out

    Diamondback and Banshee both have capacity at or above 1600 riders per hour.  No way this coaster will have less than that.  It will be a crowd eater.

    But it doesn't have a MCBR which factors in and honestly the only reason I said 1,200 was because I thought I seen it on the blueprints. I know Banshee and DB are around 1,600

    I am wondering if the sequence numbers refer to letter placement, then might the letters be placed out of order and have to be unscrambled? The reason I wonder is if O is Sequence 5, then where is there so much space between Sequence 5 and Sequence 8? 

    I think it could possibly be two words with a space between them

    I'm hoping for Polaris to be the name. 

    I think the park could have made some money if they sold two shirts with the same design but one said Orion and the other said Polaris and whichever sold the most would end up being the name for the new ride.

    Except crazy people like me who would buy both shirts
