    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    8 year old me watching rollercoaster povs would disagree with that statement :p

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    How does the theming not add anything to the experience? That is what I don’t understand. I certainly think Millennium Forces station music adds something to the experience but since it’s Orion and it’s located at KI the station music apparently adds nothing.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I don’t understand what’s wrong with the theming? Does it detract from the experience? Most people I’ve seen on social media seem to like the theming, and at the very least haven’t disliked it enough to complain about it.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I really enjoyed riding Orion today, the first drop was phenomenal. The “wave turn” after the first drop was a very fun element that I enjoyed quite a bit. The biggest surprise for me was how fun the small hill before the brake run is. I will say however the trim sometimes seemed to hit a little...

    The metal hut in Orion’s queue looks well themed, glad they have a short film playing on the tv screens inside. I do wish more of the queue was themed however.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    While it’s certainly not anywhere close to be being themed to the level of a Universal or Disney ride I do think the theming they have done is fine. I am hoping that the large metal hut is well themed on the inside. I think we can all agree even the slightest theming does improve the overall...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I don’t see why’d they do that considering they just themed an entire new area of the park based on FoF’s theme. I think Orion may arguably provide the best overall ride experience for a giga when you factor in the theme and the on ride experience (Of Course if you don’t care about theming then...

    The trims won’t effect the first 3 elements.

    I was super happy to learn about this, they did such a good job with Mystic Timbers score, really looking forward to hearing it this April.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I trust the park, who has Orion’s blueprints and specifications over your basic measurement. Using photos to measure the steepness of the drop isn’t that accurate as the perspective will effect your measurements.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Goons? Someone is a goon because they like an amusement park? I also don't understand why you keep calling it Rob Decker and the several other designers involved in this project lazy. Given the limitations they were given they seemed to produce a good product. Most likely they weren't allowed...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    The park intentionally designed the ride to be at the height it is so that it can use the terrain. If they made the ride any taller it would have missed the small valley. It’s 95% as tall as Levithan and I don’t see any people crying about how it looks almost the same size as Behemoth. The ride...

    Vortex is leaving Kings Island

    That wasn’t really why I asking that question, I asked if all 3 trains went to Carowinds. His post was talking about how it was intresting that it was sent to Carowinds instead of KD when that may not be the case if the other trains get sent else where. Yes I get why trains would be sent around.

    Vortex is leaving Kings Island

    Wasn’t it only one of the trains that went to Carowinds? I don’t recall all 3 of them going there.

    Looks like the leaked layout was legit, Credit goes to SixOhioDieselRange.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    I guess the legitimacy of this leak will kind of be proven a bit if the clearing doesn’t grow tomorrow, 2 weeks of no change in size doesn’t help the argument that it’s not legitimate.

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    No the entire layout was leaked including the turn around (Which looks like a reverse treble cleft)
