Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
This week, we're kicking off a new series for our Kings Island Blog readers, Kings Island at Night. At night, the park comes alive with an ambiance that just cannot be replicated during the day. The overall sensory experience of Kings Island seems magnified at night with the park aglow with color.
We begin the "At Night" series with a nighttime look at the new Orion giga coaster. Designed exclusively by Switzerland-based Bolliger & Mabillard, Orion debuted to rave reviews in July when Kings Island opened for the 2020 season. It is one of only seven giga coasters in the world, a class of coasters having a height or drop of 300-399 feet. Riders on Orion plummet down an exhilarating 300-foot first drop before traversing on a high-speed journey over seven more hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island.
