Vortex, when it debuted in March of 1992 was one of the first stand-up coasters in the United States. Containing a large vertical loop with two fast helixes and one corkscrew, the speedy ride continues to be a popular B&M coaster. Though Vortex is the most "popular" to break down in Carowinds, its still the fastest steel coaster built before 1995 in Carowinds, were Afterburn is the fastest.
