I really dig the effort Cedar Fair is putting in recreating the typical 60's Soviet neighborhood as theming for their parks. Always great to see entities keeping historical legacy alive.
Let's not get carried away here. Yes, it looks "nice" and they happened to put a few static props next to the cattlepens, but it is by no means Disney or Universal levels of immersion. It's still very much a roller coaster queue line. Orion is supposed to be "themed" to a military spaceplane based out of "Area 72" - there's going to be a lot of concrete, metal, and gray...the exact opposite of immersive.I mean, Copperhead Strike has a pretty nice looking queue, and Cedar Fair has apparently said in one of its recent investor presentations that it wants to transform its parks into “full experiences”.
