Vortex is an Arrow Dynamics steel roller coaster located at Calaway Park in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. When it opened, it was named "Turn Of The Century" and was painted black. At some point later in its life, it was renamed "Corkscrew". In 2004, the ride was renamed "Vortex" with the new catchphrase "Fun From The Bottom Of Your Stomach".
As of 2019, Vortex is being repainted by Baynum Painting to a black and orange color scheme, potentially alluding to the other Arrow looping coaster with its same namesake (Vortex) in Ohio.
Vortex, unlike most roller coasters similar in size, sends riders around for two laps rather than one to accommodate for the short track length.
