  1. I will always have the view Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. My 2nd entry. This is the last daylight photo I ever took of Vortex on 10/27. I titled it “Riding into the sunset” Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Took this on Sunday from the patio at Miami River Brewhouse. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. You can add this photo I captured of you.
  5. This is not an entry but thought I would share it. I was standing with Mike Koontz and Don Helbig on the Fast Lane bridge during the last public trains when I took this. This is the last public train after it was cleared and the crew did one final check. I think the photo expresses the moment pretty well.
  6. I'm a sucker for black and white photos In a restricted area
  7. It should be topped off by the end of the month if weather permits. They are ahead of schedule. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Removed photo since it wasn’t an entry.
  9. This would be the death of Kings Island. Six Flags would strip KI of it's identity on the same level as Paramount, maybe even worse. I would probably not return to the park.

  11. You forgot the prime land right next to Vortex as well as the area where the Crypt building resides.
  12. I can take an educated guess on why the removal. Metal fatigue. If you really look at Vortex you can see all the patch work along the track, especially in the loops. There are a lot of forces in these loops. Someone mentioned there are older Arrows still around like Loch Ness and Corkscrew. Well Loch Ness and Corkscrew are not custom multi loopers like Vortex. Maintaining the interconnected loops on LNM is a lot less work then the multiple inversions of Vortex. I’d rather them remove Vortex then have an incident occur like in Mexico City the other day.

  13. I'm really going to miss photographing Vortex. All things must pass. There is going to be a huge hole in the back of the park next year that even Orion won't be able to fill.
  14. Unexpected, especially with the work done to it in the last year. I have a feeling this is not exactly the time they planned to retire it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
