 Review of Son of Beast @ Kings Island
0 Rating Posted by: Coastnut on 11/15/2002 4:57:00 PM
Wow! A 218-foot wood coaster...
WITH A LOOP! Then why was I
checking my watch while riding it?
Granted, the loop was fun. Well
executed, smooth... Too bad the
rest of the coaster wasnt. The
sheer height should have provided
the motivation to create a
masterpiece, as there would be
enough energy to propel this thing
through countless manuevers,
twists, turns, bunny hops and and
head chops. Instead we got two
huge helixes with a loop in
between. A two-trick pony with the
height and inversion, it disappoints
in all other coaster aspects. The
choreography is non-existent, no
grace and no surprises. The best
coaster element is the inital drop
out of the station. This
disappointment is only
compounded by the horrible rolling
stock. Tip: ride in a middle seat.
Its less brutal and your kidneys
will thank you for not brutalising
them over an axle. They are even
more uncomfortable the Gerstlauer
trains. Holiday World replaced The
Legends trains with PTCs after
only two years. (Although, that was
already a world class coaster.)
HINT! HINT! Hopefully, Paramount
and KI will cease going after the
records and instead create
coasters that are not only more
economical but fun to ride as well.
With the hideously unrideable
Beast and SOB as their major

Try riding it again, but next time cross your legs and sit in the middle of a car. It should be a very enjoyable ride that time.

Honestly, a good coaster should not need you to take extra measures just to make it an OK ride. The best coasters in the world do not require an average height person (I am 58", very average) to cross your legs to make it rideable.

Oh, man - is the Beast really "hideously unrideable"? Ive found it, over and over, gloriously embraceable.

Same here adriahna. Have you had a night ride on the Beast yet? If not get to PKI as quick as you can. Nothing beats a night ride on the Beast.

Guys, this is a review of Son of Beast, they are two different rides you know? IMO, the Beast is awesome, expecally at night, but this thing sucks.
