Kings Island will debut the world’s seventh giga coaster in Spring 2020. “Orion” will feature a 300-foot drop and reach speeds of 91 mph with eight hills.
With 5,321 feet of track, it will be Kings Island’s tallest, fastest and longest steel coaster, the park says.
“At 91 mph, it will be the seventh fastest coaster in North America and the 10th fastest coaster on planet Earth,” says Kings Island General Manager Mike Koontz. Two other coasters go about the same speed: Millennium Force (93 mph) at Cedar Point and Leviathan (92 mph) at Canada’s Wonderland, so technically it will be the 13th fastest.
