My visit this past weekend was great, even with Saturday being very busy and me missing out on FL until Sunday.    I went into Orion not having followed its construction or watched a POV or even

I went the weekend before last and wasn't going to do any sort of report or review, but with this discussion, I'll throw my hat in the ring. I thought Orion was fantastic.  Millennium Force is th

I guess my tastes in coasters aren't that refined.... it goes 91 miles per hour and has a 300 foot drop. That's cool as sh*t. It also has tons of airtime, it's butter smooth, it hauls ass the entire t

The shed is right at the end of the layout....could it really be a drop track?

 

Why can't it be at the end? That building looks perfect for a drop track.

 

The only way it can be a drop track is if the track drops, but then comes back up with the train.

I'm not watching because we're too busy drinking but are they keeping the log flume? That's really all I care about.

 

They said nothing about the flume... which makes me think it's staying.

 

They only talked about getting to cohabitate with the rapids ride........

I think that this will be a good addition. I think though at the end, they might have either a show scene with a SplinterCat, or a drop track where you drop then rise back up. I think whatever they do though, will be really cool

Hmm... maybe a well themed showroom at the very end of the ride that leads to sadness and disappointment?

 

It wouldn't be Kings Island first. *cough*adventure express*cough*

Looks like it is staying but they said this is one of 2 big things the next one will be later next month. So who knows. Still should be a fun ride.

Could it end up being a back wood section kinda like switchback in Texas

Splintercat would have been the best coaster name ever. At least it's not Mystic Hawk. Where's this POV? Too busy watching the DNC and forgot about the announcement.

According to POV...That shed is pretty long. You can get a good look at it at the beginning of the POV. Looks like the track stays even though...But who knows. The ride looks cool! Just not thrilled with the name. Think I'll just call it "Kings Island's new coaster" instead of that other name.

Seems like there is the yellow/black caution tape on both sides of the track. Hmmm....

 

There is also a brick wall that is in the middle of the building. Maybe it will be a drop track...

 

It also looks like the track turns into steel inside the building.

This might be the first time I'm ever legitimately excited about a GCI coaster. This could be the first time ever that I go out of my way to a park to ride one.

 

Besides the traditional butchered first drop, this layout probably has the most airtime of any GCI. I'm definitely excited for this and cannot wait to find out the surprise in the shed and ride it.

I'm thinking it's not a drop track... the shed and the station remain at the same height it seems... unless it's a turbo drop...

 

After watching the POV, I think the flume is staying as it looks like it's nowhere near its path

I think this will be a great addition to King's Island and I'm sure families will love it. It looks to have much more airtime than I was expecting.

 

Even if the ending turns out to be nothing I still think this is a really decent addition to the park.

The last video is a 360* view of the three sheds.

 

If that rendering is correct, then there is no way the surprise is a drop track, since the shed is one story, starting at the level of the track. The rendering may not be correct, though.

I'm a little dissapointed about Mystic Timbers. Expecting something like Gold Striker, not Prowler

You're 15 so we understand.

I'm a bit disappointed, not just with NoLimits 2 animation but the coaster itself

You're 14 so we understand.

I don't think they will give it all away like that in a rendering.
