    Comfort Smoothness Too short

    Kick-ass coaster but Very short. 9.3/10

    Airtimes First Drop Intensity

    In my opinion, Orion is by far my favorite giga coaster I’ve ridden. It’s a really intense ride and it also features strong airtime moments. My favorite part is probably the first drop in the back row because you get sustained ejector air going down that drop. I also like the helix before the final hill because it’s super intense and I greyed out. However, I prefer the front row for the intensity because you feel the airtime and the other forces more than you do in the back row. Overall, Orion is a really fun coaster that packs some strong airtime and some really intense moments. It is also a great fit for Kings Island!

    First Drop Capacity Pace Too short

    Overall crazy ride but for me it still does other hyper or giga coasters ive been on. The best part is either the drop which is nice because your brought up there pretty quickly and then the drop feels forever or the forceful turn around or helix. The speed is also consistent during the ride. There is also very quick dispatches and capacity but the disappointing part is that its a short ride for this insane looking coaster. Being one of the newer giga coaster to come you should try to beat other giga but it just didn't but overall it was an insane experience and is a top 3 in the park and is a must do at kings Island.

    First Drop Comfort Intensity

    Rode in rows 3 and 7. It had a great drop, it feels like you're falling for a long time. The first turn is kind of weak, it should be way better. Ditto for the turnaround. Then it starts sending you into good airtime moments, with the speed hill and large hill. Then comes the helix, which made me completely lose my vision (on my second ride, as opposed to a mild grey out on the first ride) until the final banked hill. It definitely felt fast in the valleys, and as a consequence, like it had to draw out its elements more. There is a good sense of speed in the valleys, but that is not sustained, other than through the speed hill. No element really stuck out to me, other than the crazy intense helix. Makes me think B&M should either just stick to airtime hills, or really try some new elements with more whip. There is the slightest rattle, but this has no effect on the ride. This coaster is excellent, but I feel like there could have been better elements in a few places. With gigas, expectations are sky high.

    Airtimes Capacity Duration Disappointing! Dead spots

    Having Candymonium in my home park, I was expecting a slightly better version of that. Well, it isn't. It has less airtime, is not nearly as smooth. It's not bad but for me it is still a disappointment.

    Airtimes First Drop Fun

    This is an amazing ride. While I do find Fury 325 at Carowinds slightly better this is still an amazing "giga" coaster. The first drop is amazing, this ride had some surprisingly great airtime, it's fairly intense, and it's overall just an incredibly fun ride

    First Drop Comfort Smoothness Too short

    I’ve really enjoyed riding the Orion this season hands down one of my favorite coasters in the park.

    First Drop Smoothness Layout

    This was my first giga coaster, and it was an amazing experience. I obviously haven't ridden any other B&M gigas other than this (Leviathan and Fury), but I really loved the airtime and the layout. That last floater airtime hill in particular was nuts. A great addition to the Kings Island lineup.

    Airtimes Capacity Smoothness

    Orion was about what I expected it to be. My first ride was back left in the pouring rain and I couldn’t remember a thing. Once it stopped raining I got back right and it was really good. Fantastic drop, great speed hill, nice floater on the big hill, good Gs in the helix, and good air exiting that last turn. Very good ride

    Orion is a very fun coaster. Just on the shorter end.

    First Drop Lap Bar Fun Too short

    Great first drop with a few fantastic elements. It feels a little short but is still an outstanding ride. Both back and front rows give great rides but I would recommend the front.

    Airtimes First Drop Pace

    Wow. I expected a good, not great, coaster that would fall near the middle of my giga rankings. What I received was a ride that was relentlessly well-paced from start to finish. The drop is Fury-level, the first hill gives good off-axis air, the turnaround gives a ton of weird, strong forces culminating in a nice pop of ejector into the sustained ejector of the speed hill. The helix is forceful but not overly so, the near miss is absolutely ridiculous, and the last two airtime hills before the brakes hit like a truck - the best elements of the ride. This is my favorite giga.

    Airtimes Lap Bar Intensity

    This ride is FANTASTIC! I feel like a lot of people either way overhyped or way underhyped this ride. This ride truly exceeded every expectation I had for it -- Except one. I expected the Helix to be more intense, but it was probably the most boring part of the ride on a ride FULL of fantastic elements! It's currently my 3rd favorite giga coaster, ahead of Leviathan and I305, but not nearly as good as Millennium Force or Fury 325

    First Drop Comfort Fun

    This is my favorite giga... Better than Leviathan, definitely. And a little better than Millennium Force. This was an amazing addition to Kings Island and the second best ride in the park!
