Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Vortex, a spinner at Thorpe Park. (The minimum height to ride is 55 inches.)
Written by Sebastian Outfin
Vortex consists of a pendulum, and at the bottom a star of six further arms, each with four seats. Riders legs dangle freely as the ride swings, up to an almost vertical level. At the same time, the star rotates (although not very fast) ensuring some disorientation. A popular ride, high capacity ensures queues move quickly. This fun, exhilarating ride which flies over the lake, is considered by many to be Thorpe's best, of many, flat rides. Located south of the dome.
