Not likely since The Vortex is 33 years old and getting shut down

Holy thread bump...

We'll see.  Vortex lasted 33 years and the problem referenced was the stress on the unbanked track.  If it had been banked it would have lasted longer- even though having the pendulum weight of the trains hanging/swinging as opposed to riding on top would seem to be stress of its own. 

that said, the present day iteration of The Bat opens it's 29th season this year.

Yes.....I have ridden The Bat (no matter if it is old or new)....  84 times (89 all time rides) last season is very impressive but enjoyed being part of The Bat's 30th Anniversary which is the reason why I have shown Kings Island a true spirit in capturing The Bat last season which has been a great start to the 2023 season....I'm now looking forward to the new season this April and I'm just about ready to go to ride The Bat again.....
