A train load of plush Bob Ross dolls were loaded onto the new Orion giga coaster this week for a test run of the new roller coaster. The park released video of the ride with the dolls reaching speeds up to 91 mph on the coaster.

The roller coaster opened last year and is the park’s tallest and fastest roller coaster.

The dolls will be available as prizes at select games in the park, a Kings Island spokesperson said.
