    Pace Rattle Harness Discomfort

    Vortex is easily the worst B&M coaster I've ever ridden. After the loop, the ride becomes an endless barrage of painful elements. It's not so bad that it isn't fun, but it is bad enough that it's certainly not a good coaster. I hope this either gets torn down or has a floorless conversion, because Vortex is not Carowinds's finest work.

    Intensity Too short Layout

    A rare B&M Stand-Up that has yet to be converted to a Floorless. While the layout is decently intense while standing, it's just entirely too short to really offer much to riders. Standing coasters don't bother me (in fact I quite like them), but these early layouts with just a few elements just kinda suck; converting this one to a Floorless wouldn't fix the layout issues at all, and would just make a mediocre standing ride into a mediocre sitting ride.

    Harness Discomfort Intensity

    Short, intense (in a bad way), and VERY painful. I would not be mad if they gave this the floorless conversion.

    Intensity Headbanging Discomfort Layout

    Ride was intense but didn’t have a very good layout and just hurt. Beats you up pretty bad with lots of headbanging.

    Pace Intensity Theming

    Vortex deserves too much hate in my opinion. It’s a solid B&M coaster, certainly one that packs an unassuming punch, and doesn’t have a lot of roughness compared to other rides like Rougarou or Batman: The Ride. This is my fifth favorite coaster at Carowinds, behind Intimidator, Copperhead Strike, Afterburn and Fury 325.

    Honestly, this ride gets so much more hate than it deserves. I rode this ride this past weekend and it was running beautifully and it was never that bad in the years previous. I find standing slightly on your tip-toes makes the ride a lot better. I did not get any headbanging, only part I kind of had to brace I guess was the corkscrew, which has a hell of a whip. The turn around after the loop has a very fun spot to jump at and the helix is surprisingly good, one of my favorites! The seats this 2018 season seem to have become easier to move up and down, which was probably my biggest complaint before.

    Headbanging Discomfort

    Oh I hate standup coasters. Loading and unloading takes ages. Standup position is not comfortable at all and doesn't add much to the ride experience. Lots of headbanging here. It's no wonder that parks are going to remove them or transform them to sit-down coasters.
