Good eye! I knew one was from Firehawk (with the red and green), but I had to look at it closer to realize the second one was from Vortex. What a cool souvenir! :D

EDIT: Personally, I'm more of a fan of the Firehawk piece, especially as it's both red and green; representing the ride's past and (at one time) present. B)

I mean we're in the middle of an economic recession, I don't think you need to spend $200 to prove that you loved Vortex. You can be a real coaster enthusiast without having to spend $200 on a 1.5 inc

I am a "real" enthusiast and Vortex is important to me.  But I have other things to devote money to.  If someone wants it and is willing to pay it, more power to them.  But others who are not willing

^i don't care if its ugly. Its a personal thing to me. Vortex holds a special place in my heart as my favorite ride of all time. Its been my favorite since ive been a child. My plaque in my room has been sitting here for almost a year waiting for this. Id give anything on earth for a small piece. Anything.

^if i lived closer i would LOL. I live 3 hours away though. https://www.ebay.com/itm/124272328530
 
WHY DIDNT I SEE THIS?! 
There went my only chance.
Too bad i never got a message back from him on shipping prices.
 
Im begging anyone here, help me get my hands on arrow history. Please you guys... im still waiting on his reply, and im getting worried.

Well the auction was cancelled as I figured it would be.
Also a 1ft section of the tube part of the track weighs about 25lbs, so shipping would not be cheap.

I recently saw a piece sell for $500, I assume it was sold.

You never know what the park will do. Don’t give up hope yet. You never know.

Id take even a tiny peice. The plaque i have would be perfect for a tiny peice. I just wish i could get my hands on one. Its been sitting in my room for almost a year unused. I just cant get ahold of one sadly. I might throw this plaque away honestly because im unsure if its ever going to be used. :( I just want one piece. Thats it. A tiny piece. :(

Hey if anyone is able to get me one and ship it to me I'd gladly be willing to pay them 100 bucks on top of the cost to do so, I live 9 hours away and I've been waiting for this for a good long time. I don't want to risk the online thing.

If the SOB sale was any indication, there will likely be pieces for sale on Monday morning.

Guess it really depends how many sets are for sale. I hope they have plenty so that everyone who wants one is able to get one.

That’s where I think it gets hard to guess about sales...I think Vortex is more beloved than Son of Beast...so who knows.

The SoB plaques were also only sold in the offseason and by phone order only, limit one per person. These will actually be in the park for an entire weekend and with two allowed per person, so there's likely going to be people buying two so they can scalp the other one on eBay too.
