Where are the cranes? There ought to be cranes!
There are some huge cranes coming in within the next week so that crews can continue working on the erecting the lift hill on the new Orion roller coaster at Kings Island.
Three will be three cranes set up for that process. There will be a main crane doing the major lifts. There will be another crane that is the personnel basket so they can get and bolt the pieces of track and supports together, and another one that assists with holding any pieces in place while the main crane sets another one.
Opening spring 2020, Orion will be one of only seven giga coasters in the world, a class of roller coasters having a height or drop of 300-399 feet.
Riders on Orion will plummet down an exhilarating 300-foot drop before sending them on a high-speed journey over seven more hills at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island, and the longest steel roller coaster at 5,321 feet.
Those who cannot wait until spring to experience Orion can take a virtual ride now.
