Here's one taken by your's truly in January of 2002...   Not sure where I got this next one - but its incredible... (Not taken by me)  

Taken in 2017

So I went a bit overboard than I expected and took about 200 photos of Vortex on its last day of operations (and a few of Orion- when in Rome....).  I took some of the more typical photos, but I also went around the entire park and took photos from spots we see it and take it for granted.   There are some GLORIOUS spots that most people don't think of.  I'll post my money shot here, but I will be posting them elsewhere as well.  It was a real labor of love to really try to capture the ride in its relation to the park and its incomparable place in the park skyline.   I hope you enjoy them and reminisce well in viewing them.

Here's my favorite view- looking at Vortex at sunset as a train flies up the 2nd hill.

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.

In my business Quality of a picture is important. But a feeling, or story back the photo all the way. And this my friend is a great picture. The sadness and calmness behind this pic is perfect man! Would you mind if i edited this and made it Black and White and make The Vortex sign in color?

Sure. Go ahead.

My second submission as well. Someone gave me inspiration for this shot (and probably the person that will win this contest) and it seemed to be a popular spot for photographers on the last operating day for the ride. Sometimes iPhones do take good photos (sometimes ;)

With 47 Votes, @TOPGUN1993 is the winner of the Send Off Vortex picture contest! Congratulations.

Thanks to all who submitted their Vortex pictures. Vortex was one of the most photogenic coasters in the park and we will miss being able to get future shots of the ride.
