Could you be Orion’s one millionth rider?

The award-winning Orion giga coaster, which opened to rave reviews last summer, is poised to give its one millionth ride in a matter of days.

After the one millionth rider completes their ride, the lucky individual will receive an Orion-themed gift package and a behind-the-scenes tour of the 5,321-foot long steel coaster.

Named Best New Amusement Park Attraction for 2020 in the USA TODAY Readers’ Choice Travel Awards poll, riders on Orion plummet down an exhilarating 300-foot first drop, sending them on a high-speed journey over seven more hills at speeds up to 91 mph on Kings Island's tallest, fastest and longest steel roller coaster. 

The story-driven attraction was exclusively designed for Kings Island by Switzerland-based Bolliger & Mabillard, which also designed the park's popular Banshee and Diamondback roller coasters.
