  1. It's gonna be so weird without Vortex on the Skyline. That part of the park was like going through a time machine back to the 80s. It's always been Beast, Racer and Vortex front and center since before I was even born. It's not gonna look right without that pretty arrow.
  2. I've applied to the seasonal ones too, regardless if I don't find a good job by April/may, I was considering being a ride op seasonally I'm just not too sure which Cedar Fair park to choose.
  3. Oh don't worry I've applied already, it's just getting in. With an associates in engineering and years experience fixing cars I'm hopeful but who knows. I would have loved to have been able to work on Vortex, but I think it might be a tad late for that now.
  4. Ah off season maintenance. That must be such a cool job. I wish I knew how to get in as a coaster mechanic.
  5. They still haven't found a nice middle ground though. If you are standing at the very end of Vortex's que it's only a 30 minute wait. If I had to stand all the way at the end of The Bat's... Well that's a scary thought.
  6. As long as he doesn't poop on the camera he is welcome.
  7. Trust me if we had a legal way of getting a piece we all would. Vortex has been my #1 since I was just a kid. I hit many milestones on it. I was there for the end. If the opportunity arises you'll hear it first here.
  8. Please God let them sell pieces, I need one!!!
  9. I don't think it's really about the publicity. I think it's more Ridership vs maintenance cost. If you look closely at recent pictures of Vortex you can see it was welded up literally everywhere. The steel clearly wasn't in the best shape. The upkeep cost most likely just became too much to justify vs the ridership. I'm sure the park would have loved to keep a classic, but money is the real factor here.
  10. I never even realized there was a gift shop at the end of King Cobra. Seems ahead of its time. I wonder if any pictures of it still exist
  11. I'd love to know what the other 2 original proposals for Vortex's site were. I find that stuff very interesting. Just like how there were multiple proposals from different manufacturers to build magnum.
  12. I wish they would do something like they did for Firehawk with the demolition updates. It can't be that hard to do. This is the most secretive demolition I've seen in a long time.
  13. At this point this is just aggravating. Like come on you can drive by the park and get the same view.
