As workers toil in the cold to build Kings Island's new giga coaster, Orion, its manufacturer, Bolliger & Mabillard (B&M), this week unveiled the train cars for the ride at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando, Florida.

The blue and white carriage of Orion looks vaguely similar to the cars on the Mason, Ohio, park’s Diamondback, a similar but smaller B&M coaster. However, rather than featuring staggered seating like Diamondback, with just two seats per row, the cars have four seats in a line.

The seats themselves are almost identical to those on Carowinds' Fury 325, another B&M giga coaster in the Carolinas.
