Kings Island, Mason, Ohio has announced a July 2 opening for season pass holders and a July 12 opening for single-day ticket holders. Orion, a Bolliger & Mabillard giga coaster (the seventh on the planet) will debut at that time.

The new ride is 287 feet tall and features a 300-foot first drop and speeds up to 91 mph as it traverses 5,321 feet of track.

Kings Island also will debut the new Area 72 themed section of the park that replaces the park’s former themed area, X-Base. Area 72 is the home of Flight of Fear and Orion, and is themed as a government research facility focused on studying the effects of flight on humans.
