I don't even know where to start with this. First of all Coaster enthusiasts probably make up less than 1% of a parks Annual visitors and revenue. They simply don't make decisions based on what we want. For the people who pay the bills (the General Public) this will probably be a huge hit.

Presumably this ride doesn't focus on airtime because they have a very similar ride on the opposite side of the park which does and it doesn't make sense to invest 30million dollars replicating a ride you already have.

So thems the breaks kids. If you dont like it you can either find 30 million dollars to build your own ride, or get another hobby.

It seems like a decent coaster, but other than the first banked hill, there isn't anything too interesting about it, also considering that this park already has Diamondback, which is almost the same thing.

Then don't go to the park and/or don't ride Orion out of protest. The park won't miss you, and I'll appreciate one less person in front of me in line.

So it looks like Orion doesn't have bins and will likely require fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo. Does anyone have a list of fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo specific coasters at KI?

I know Cedar Point has a list of ones you need it on, and I will likely just by the moveable one for both days I am there, is that an option at KI, and is it needed?

Orion, Banshee, Mystic Timbers. Cargo shorts are a great investment!
