Vortex. Not that I’m biased or anything  

Vortex was quite fun indeed (thanks VortexBFForever for helping me get a couple rides in on Vortex). I not only miss Vortex, I also miss Firehawk, but both were so awesome!

I'm going to have to say The Vortex for two reasons. One: The only coasters I've ridden at KI that are now defunct were Firehawk and The Vortex. Two: The Vortex helped me conquer my fear of roller coasters and made me start to enjoy riding them more.

Yeah, I miss The Vortex because I know Kings Island isn't the same anymore without Vortex....




It feels so empty without that ride standing there. Guess it wasn't listening to Elton John enough.

Its hands down Son of Beast. Then Firehawk. I only remember Vortex as a really head banger of a ride. Firehawk was great at night and SOB well I was only 17 when I rode it for the first time and I do not remember it ever being rough. Likely its all due to my age at the time and rose tinted glasses but it still gets my vote.
