Kings Island selling pieces of iconic Vortex roller coaster

MASON, Ohio (WISH) — Kings Island is selling slices of The Vortex roller coaster track, but you’ll have to make a trip there this weekend to get one.

The price for one piece is $198.70; that’s an ode to the coaster’s opening year 1987. It opened as the tallest, full circuit coaster with the highest drop in the world.

It closed for good in 2019, and now it’s being sold as part of a mounted display stand.

Buyers of a piece of the vortex will also get a certificate of authenticity.

Any pieces that don’t sell this weekend will be available to buy only next week.
