If you’re a fan of the Vortex at Kings Island, you should probably go ride it before they close for the season. The amusement park just announced that 2019 is this the roller coaster’s last season.

After 33 years, they’ll be shutting down the visitor favorite. According to WLWT, similar coasters usually last about 25-30 years. So, the Vortex has already surpassed its life expectancy.

October 27 will be its last day in commission. Next year Kings Island will debut Orion—their biggest coaster ever.
