    Anyone know what the raised round bits of metal are for on top of the box section of track?.

    Orions first drop is 300 feet, therefore qualifies to be a giga

    While 20 million does sound overpriced, you have to remember the site the ride sits on was concrete, and this had to be removed before construction started. Waste removal isn't a cheap business .The 2 holes the cobra roll sit in won't have been cheap to dig either, due to having to get rid of...

    It needs to be painted, the station needs to be finished, it wouldn't surprise me if all the queue line fencing needs to be installed. I will probably have a drive up in a couple of weeks to see if work on it has started again.

    I wouldn't expect it to open this year, still a lot of work to be done.

    Like you said cherry picker is an umbrella term which is why I used it.

    They will use what's called a cherry picker, a basket on a hydraulic extendable arm. readily available cheap to hire and easy to manoeuvre!

    Ladder?, more like a cherry picker.

    Well I do charge £1000 pound an hour to paint rollercoaster's with a paint brush!

    I beg to differ! , it doesn't matter if it's been sat in field for several years or been in use for several years, the point is the paint will fade no matter what. It's far cheaper to pay for point to point shipping than it would be to have it shipped to a paint shop and then re shipped to the site.

    It's only like a coaster that's been erected for years getting a new paint job, they don't take them down to do it!
