The newest addition to Kings Island’s lineup of roller coasters is set to open this spring.
Opening day for the 364-acre amusement park in Mason, Ohio, as well as its newest roller coaster, is set for Saturday, April 11. That’s when park goers can take the first rides on Orion, the tallest, fastest, longest steel coaster at Kings Island, and one of only seven giga-coasters in the world.

Orion’s riders will drop 300 feet on the first hill and then take off on a high-speed journey over seven more hills and more than 5,000 feet of track. The coaster will reach speeds up to 91 mph.
