Vortex Removal Updates

Several things:

1. I wish the park would take a few seconds off of Orion to focus on Vortex demo. Like a few pictures or a video or something.

2. I think they are going to take out all the rides elements before they demo the lift hill.

One more thing.....Does anyone think that then original Bats footers will be removed in the process?

Just a tip for watching Vortex demolition: If you right click on the Kings Island logo and hit "Inspect Element", you can remove the logo and give yourself a better view of the batwing area through the Diamondback webcam.

On the camera or the website?

Directly on the logo. When you do that, it should highlight the logo in the code. From there, just right click and select delete element.

The batwing is half gone. The approach to the batwing also gone. 

Can't really see but no other movement at this time.

There has been a few trucks pulled up to DB.  Work being done still?

I don't know what you guys are seeing (yes, I did the logo removal).  I see the batwing still intact.  The brake run and helix are gone though. 

At least, at the time of this post.

It may just be my screen but I can't see the approach to The Bat wing. Looks like a gap there but maybe its a tree.

I see they started again removing metal near the approach to the batwing.

While it is sad to see the queue building go this certainly gives them opportunity to widen the path between Autos and WindSeeker and keep it from being such a bottleneck.

I must be the vast minority but Im glad they removed the station. I hate when they remove rides and keep a station for an attraction that's used for 2 months of the year (i.e. SoB). That being said, it is sad to see it go.

Idk, It looks like I see the top of it still. But maybe it's just the ground.

I go back and forth with it. One moment it looks gone and the next I see it. I think you are right. I see it at the moment lol

To me it looks like the right side of the batwing is gone but the left side is definitely still there

Here is a side by side with two weeks ago.  It's definitely hard to see, but the batwing definitely looks like it is still there.  The entry and exit to the batwing may be gone though.

At this moment the batwing looks full intact. I think they ripped out the helix and are cleaning up the mess as they go.

Agreed the cam cleared up a little bit and you can see the whole batwing now.

Sorry if I done this wrong. Good thing about 38” hd cpu monitor. You can really zoom in

 

The batwing is most definitely gone. There is one little crane in there. Is for sure causing havoc
