Why is there no Vortex tombstone?


Recommended Posts

As of when this forum has been posted, I've been to Kings Island at least two or three times during the FALL season. In those 2-3 times I've been, I've been looking for in the "Kings Island ride graveyard" for The Vortex's tombstone. But all the times I've looked, I've had no luck finding it. Here are MY two possible reasons why I think this is: One; Kings Island hasn't had the time to make the tombstone yet. Or, two; Maybe Kings Island is, possibly, planning on, sometime, resurrecting the ride.  Who knows?

This is just MY prediction. Let me know your thoughts on why there is no Vortex tombstone.

You don't know how many times you have been to KI this fall? ;)

Because it's not dead. ;)

This.  I think Vortex was a much more integral part of Kings Island than the average coaster that gets removed.  I would put it along the lines of The Beast and the Eiffel Tower.  I believe Cedar Fair has finally discovered the true value of nostalgia (KMAA, Winterfest, and I would argue MT).  I will actually be surprised if whatever takes Vortex' spot won't be called "Vortex", or have that as part of its name.

True. I think I do remember that.

They probably don't have it yet because they were anticipating no Haunt due to COVID-19.  

No Haunt=no Vortex tombstone. 

This is just a joke: Or maybe Kings Island tried hiring skeletons to make the tombstone. But the tombstone was never made because the "Skeleton Crew" didn't have the GUTS to make it. LOL

Not even the name, Son of The Vortex? No pun intended.

When I said the "FALL season", I meant the time when Kings Island started doing the fall activities THIS YEAR. Sorry if that might have been a little confusing. And to answer your question, I know I've at least two times during the "FALL season."

The park probably spent $0 on anything gory or death-related this year, since this is a fall festival event.     For the ride graveyard, they probably just used what they had since any money spent was spent on more friendly decorations this year.

I am sure it'll show up - maybe not this year, but eventually.  The park seems to understands the importance of the ride to guests and with everything so messed up in 2020 it probably wasn't high on their list of things to do.
