Do roller coasters actually become unserviceable at this age, or is just an excuse for the park to get rid of the ride? I really wanted to ride it, but I ran out of time when I went to KI in June! I'm sad that I'll never get to ride it!

It depends on the park in that Lagoon is a special case that has the resources and connections to keep thier coaster up indefinately. Vortex is 32 years old. Most coasters have a 30 to 40 year life span. Im sad I will never get to ride it either. Just makes my framed picture of the ride more special now.
