The Vortex operated at Kings Island for 33 seasons from 1987 to 2019, giving 46 million rides. It was the tallest, full-circuit roller coaster with the highest drop in the world when it opened, and the first in the world to send riders upside down a total of six times. The Vortex was designed exclusively for Kings Island by Arrow Dynamics and included the following succession of thrills that had never been incorporated into one steel roller coaster before.
A 148-foot high lift and drop of 138 feet at a 55-degree angle. A 360-degree helix turn at the end.A top speed of 55 mph. After giving its last rides on Oct. 27, 2019, crews demolished the Vortex prior to the opening of Kings Islands 2020 season.
