Video: Vortex (Fabbri)

Vortex is a Fabbri manufactured ‘Junior Booster’ owned by Powers Great American Midway. The ride is one of the many spin offs of the largely successful Sky Scraper originally manufactured by Gravity Works. Much like their namesake, Sky Scraper is a very large ride standing at 160 feet. Due to its large size, the ride is mostly installed at amusement parks where the cost of moving such a beast is not applicable. Soon after, Fabbri jumped on board with their 128 foot portable version called Booster. The success of  Booster finally resulted in the design of Junior Booster, a more compact version that stands at roughly 98 feet.
