PKI Vortex Going??

Monday, April 28, 2003 2:46 PM
Today I was talking to someone that used to work at PKI till 2001. He tould me that PKI was taking out the Vortex because it has been sinking over the years. If this is true why did the park fix the Vortex up in 2001? If anyone could tell me if this going to happen or someone is pulling my leg. Thank you

Vortex is sinking as much as Magnum is.

Very inconspicuous way of coming back, ThunderFun. So much for "taking your leave and not returning". :)

Sorry about that must have been a bad rumor going around the park.

Hehe, I just heard the Magnum is sinking one like a couple of weeks ago for the first time. If it goes, than there had better be a good reason.

To clear it up the whole magnum sinking thing was an April Fools joke a few years ago. It even says it under FAQs on the CP official site.

It must have been a joke, nbt even a rumor. I've never heard that and if it were to go, they wouldn't have done the repaint two years ago or the track rewelding this winter.

Besides lets think about this that ride is right next to the beast if the ground was unstable there then the beast would have sank years ago ;)
