Kings Isand have shared this stunning photo of Orion:
And the best amusement park on social media award goes to...
I’ll be visiting next May/June for a day and was hoping for a Black Friday or Cyber Monday ticket deal. But there’s been nothing for day passes.
CP has a decent ticket sale but nothing for kings sadly. I also will be going at a similar time
April 11th confirmed as the opening date.
It's always sad to see a coaster torn down in such a brutal way:
The final piece of track has now been put in place on Orion:
Orion completed its first complete test run yesterday.
Indeed it has!

Looking forward to riding this in a couple of months. It's taking the helixis a bit faster than I expected
They said the same about Yukon Striker (spoilers it's still slow)
It gets said about virtually every coaster.
Difference being is that this genuinely looks quite dull.
Sounds like the ride is getting an IMAscore sound track
IMAscore have confirmed that they are doing the soundtrack for Orion.
Meanwhile here is some more testing footage, it does seem to be flying round parts of the layout which is great to see:
Despite all the flack it's getting, I think we could be in for a real surprise with Orion! That testing footage looked phenomenal!
Orion will undoubtedly be a great coaster, and one of the best coasters at Kings Island (maybe the best after Beast). It just had the potential to be quite a bit longer, but I do understand that would have cost a lot more dollar.
Thought Mystic Timbers was the best coaster when I visited last year. Orion looks good from these testing videos so hopefully I'll get to visit again and try it.
Shouldve been the park and Orions opening weekend on Saturday.
I've never been to Kings Island but it's on my bucket list places to visit. What's the best ride in everyone's opinions?
Kings Island is a park with a lot of good coasters but no real top coasters. The stand out coaster for me at the park is Beast, especially on the front row. Mystic Timbers is very good fun though, and Diamondback has a good first half. I found Banshee to be disappointing despite wanting to really like it!
