Kings Island debuts Orion roller coaster

Posted | Contributed by Jeff

Now the tallest and fastest steel roller coaster at Kings Island, Orion is one of only seven giga coasters worldwide, part of a class of coasters having a height or drop of between 300 and 399 feet. Riders on the new coaster plunge down a 300-foot first drop at a 85-degree angle, sending them on a high-speed journey over seven more hills and 5,321 feet of track at speeds up to 91 mph.

This is a totally meaningless "Well, actually......" moment, but what 7 are they counting? I have MF, SD2K, Leviathan, I305, Fury 325, and Orion.

My only guess would be Superman at SFMM. But I don't know that I would lump that into the giga category.

Oh. Is it Red Force? That makes sense.

Red Force is the only rocket over 300 that is less than 400
