Goodbye Vortex

Kings Island Photos Taken: 10/19/2019 Posted: 06/23/2020

In this update, we visit Kings Island during Haunt to ride Vortex for the final time. While it is sad to see this classic Arrow looping coaster go, we are excited for what the future holds. It was great to be aware of the planned closure of the ride so that we could make one last visit to take some final photos.

We also posted a video of Vortex that can be found here.

It's going to be many years before something replaces Vortex.
