Vortex sways because it was designed to sway. And major refurbishments and yearly work aren’t the same thing.

You’ll see rides like that removed when ridership and cost of maintenance have a wide gap. No need to maintain something not enough people ride, especially on a large plot of land that can house something else that contributes more to the park’s capacity.

Let's be honest, vortex sucked. Yeah, it look great and is visually appealing but the ride is not comfortable and there would (in my opinion) would not be any way to make it a more bearable experience.

It would take new rolling stock and the removal/replacement of several elements of the layout.

Which isn’t going to happen.

And West Coast Racers still isn't open. (Has it even finished track work yet?)

Copperhead went up really quickly I feel like, if nothing else but by comparison to the above.

This may be worthy of a new thread.

I hope not. Cedar Fair has already expressed their interest in making Carowinds the “Cedar Point of the South”. Who knows what Six Flags may do.

Probably would be "Six Flags over the Carolinas"

I started a thread on it yesterday and a moderator deleted it for some reason.

The fact that the conference was canceled probably to avoid the Q&A dosen't look good but again. I think they will sell off the smaller, low performance parks.

Parks like Carowinds, CP, KBF, CW, KI, KD are probably all safe.
