The oldest operating stand-up roller coaster in the United States. Vortex was one of three early versions of the B&M stand-up coaster and the only one of these that has not been retrofitted with "floorless" trains.
Vortex is not very tall, fast or long, instead, the novelty is that you stand while riding in the specially designed trains. The track rises nine stories before the first descent into one of two inversions, a vertical loop. After a banked downward turn, the track continues with an upward helix followed by the second inversion, a corkscrew.
