Great America: Vortex's Last Stand

California's Great America in Santa Clara will introduce its first floorless roller coaster in 2017.

To be named Patriot, the ride will make its debut in early 2017. The existing Vortex, a stand-up coaster, will undergo a transformation into the floorless Patriot during the park's offseason. Vortex is the oldest stand-up coaster in the United States.

The park is open weekends through September 4, then 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Labor Day, September 5, for the Vortex ride's "Last Stand."
