Vortex Audio Clips and Ringtones

Recommended Posts

Over the last few weeks that Vortex was open, I made some audio recordings of different parts of the ride. There was quite a bit of background noise in many of them, so I did my best to filter it out. I also converted all the files over to Apple Ringtone format (.m4r) so that they can be used as text/ringtones. I love having the station bell as my default text tone. 

Includes: 

  • Lift Ambient + Alternate
  • Lift Ascension (in-car) + Alternate
  • Lift Block Clear (bell)
  • Train Stopped in C brakes (bell)
  • Ready Brakes Opening
  • Station Brakes + Alternate

Hope you enjoy!

I LOVE THEM!!!!!!

After hearing those sounds every day for three summers, next season will be so weird without them...but I’m thankful that they have been immortalized.

This is great!  How did you get the audio so clean?

iPhone in my pocket wired to a cheap lav mic, used different placements to get the "alternates".

This is awesome- it is nice to have all these classic Vortex sounds archived. (I had a idea for a use for it in No Limits 1 but it didn't work like I'd hoped- I'll still enjoy just being able to listen to Vortex's sounds again)

Also I had heard that bell ringing noise dozens of times while in line for Vortex, and never realized until now it was for when a train had crested the lift hill or if 3 trains were stacked on the brake runs. :P

The three ring bell was only when a train was stopped at the C block brakes right before the corkscrews

Oh- oops. My bad- now that I think of it, I don't think I ever saw or heard Vortex stop there, so all I ever heard was the "Cleared Lift" bell.
