Riders will enjoy the thrills of this steel coaster as it travels around Wonder Mountain, reaching speeds of 80km/h. Vortex is a suspended roller coaster, where riders are taken up through the top of the mountain and dropped at high speeds, plunging down towards the body of water below, narrowly missing it. This is one of the many great rides in the FAST LANE lineup.

  • Trains climb the lift hill to 98 feet (30M) on Wonder Mountain, then travel at speeds reaching 80km/hour in cars suspended on overhead track which allows each one to swing independently.
  • The Park’s first suspended coaster; opened in 1991.
  • One of 3 roller coasters that interact with Wonder Mountain; the others being Thunder Run and Wonder Mountain's Guardian.
  • 2 trains travels over water and grassy hills in one of the most scenic rides at the Park.
  • One of the fastest roller coasters of its kind in the world.

Guests must be 48" tall to ride.
