Coasters as follows (don't know all the correct names) ->
STANDUP COASTER - new this season;
the wooden racing coaster that's been there for quite a while;
a steel looping coaster;
a "runaway mine train".    Also a "water park" added several
years ago with some nice attractions.

The NEW STANDUP COASTER is quite nice -- very fast -- can be
disorienting ...

The new coaster you mentioned is called the "Vortex".  It is the fourth
coaster to bear the name.  The others are (FYI):

Vortex-Kings Island, Sit-down, Arrow, six inversion elements, opened 1987.
Vortex-Canada's Wonderland, Suspended, Arrow, opened 1991.
Vortex-Great America, Stand-up, B&M, opened 1991.
