Though it is such and amazing coaster to look at from the tower, Vortex is such the head banger, far more than SOB. Many of these older Arrow loopers are, they just don't age well. Very few older generation loopers can compete with today's B&M loopers. Kennywood saw this and took out Phantom's loops. Great America took down Shockwave. Again, nice to look at, not so fun to ride. Some have not been so affected by age like the Viper at SFMM. Shwarzkof coasters have done extremely well over the years. The reality is older loopers are a time limited attraction, with a shorter, optimal life span then other rides.

Maybe they can replace Vortex with a B&M Flyer. Theme it like a Bat ride and it could be the third coaster in the same spot. Imagine a flyer with a bat theme. Did Paramount do the recent Batman movie?

You're not going to see a Batman ride that isn't in a Six Flags park into time soon, I wouldn't think.

Brain cramp....Yes you are right about that matt. Well what about a Condor look or Vulture. Are there any other flying related movies a B&M flyer could go with?
