Orion Construction Pictures

Recommended Posts

I did not know anything about a tour, but if I had been on the guest list I would have been unable to get up out of bed and would have missed it anyway.

Nothing new on Orion lately? Here is a picture of Fury 305. I think Orion well look very, very much like this.

Wow, these are nice and sharp, Mr. Roberts. Saw where construction has been down quite a few days due to weather, but that's certainly to be expected in winter.

While the contrast isn't great due to low light when I captured this from the webcam earlier, they've completed the 56-foot speed hill and are climbing up the 147-foot hill that is the last straight hill before the helix is started.

I read today that Kings Island said they will be posting the 2020 operation calendar in the next 7 to 10 days.

Next support is going in on the airtime hill. We may even get some track today, or we may see it in the morning. 
 

Any interest to see past shots?

The message came from KingsIslandPR in reply to a question asked by a woman on the Kings Island Pass Holder group on Facebook.

The fog is starting to clear and they are getting back to work. Not to mention I can finally see something...

Excellent. Wonder if all that brush will eventually be cleared. Seems it would have been done first.

The brush is because it was taken from outside the park through whatever available lane I could find without trespassing on anyone's property.

Thank you. I did wonder if that was the case.

Your welcome and its a view that understandably not often seen.
