Kings Island’s new Orion roller coaster opened earlier this month. As one of the most highly anticipated new attractions for 2020, does it live up to expectations? Orion reactions are in, and here’s what people are saying.

From what those who have experienced Orion are saying, the ride is everything Kings Island fans and roller coaster enthusiasts alike were hoping for, and more. 

Designed exclusively by Switzerland-based Bolliger & Mabillard, Orion is one of only seven giga coasters in the world, a class of coasters having a height or drop of 300-399 feet.

Thrill-seekers traverse on a high-speed journey over eight hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph on the tallest and fastest roller coaster at Kings Island.
