  1. April 12th is Easter when the park has been open in the past on Easter the park was a ghost town. The park probably figures it's better to stay closed. April 19th is probably the park buy out that usually happens in April each year. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  3. You can buy bring a friend tickets at the ticket booth for $24.99 we did it last weekend. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. I honestly still can't admit to myself I'll never ride Vortex again. It's going to missed so much. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. They were a piece of track that lead into the storage shed that was removable so it was easier for them to remove the trains. You can tell this piece of track wasn't traveled on much as they are no marks left from the wheels. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Looks like the transfer track is just completely moved over, that's what they do when they remove the trains. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  7. It doesn't have to stop in the midcourse if they are still a train unloading. They are a set of brakes outside of the unload station that will stop a train if it's unloading. Flight of Fear was designed to run 4 trains that's the only reason it even has a midcourse in the first place. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  9. Vortex was also my first looping coaster way back in 1987. I have no idea how many times I've rode it, but it has to have been thousands of times. I'll have so many memories that I'll cherish for the rest if my life. I'll miss it. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk

  12. It was last Completely repainted in 2001, I got to see it happen as I worked on ride crew that year, they painted it early season when the park was only weekends. It did get the rails repainted in 09. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  13. That's crazy, it ran like a champ last Saturday. This makes me believe even more they found something wrong with the ride, and that's why they made the decision to retire it. Vortex is very rarely has issues causing it not to open for the day. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. That's honestly what upsets me the most, with something that been apart of KI for over 30 years it deserved more than a 30 day notice. That's what makes me really wonder if something was discovered? Or was this a decision all along? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. Last year it closed in mid October, when they started putting up the Winterfest lights Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
