 Review of Son of Beast @ Kings Island
2 Rating Posted by: beastboy on 5/9/2004 5:37:00 AM
Some time us coaster enthusiasts can be a little too whiny. We often complain that certain woodies are too smooth, such as Lightning Racer at Hersheypark or Colossos at Heide Park, but we can also contradict ourselves by complaining about rough woodies like SoB or Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas. Yes, SoB has given me my fair share of ass beatings, but Ill be damned if those werent the best ass kickings Ive ever had in my life! In todays day and age of perfectly designed coasters that are all butter smooth, its nice to have a new wooden roller coaster that is alive and you can feel the soul of this ride. Im not sure if some of you thought you were getting into a nice stroll through the park when you got in line for this ride but I believe Son of Beast lives up to its name. Lack of reridability keeps this from being a 10.

It is too rough for marathon rides, thats for sure.

SOB rules! My favorite by far. I would take beatings from this ride all day long if lines were short enough when I visit.

BuffMan, you could probably do it, and would probably be fun. But you certainly would be hurting the next morning.

The question itself reminds me of my last ride on High Speed Thrill Coaster, that little classic Overland at Knoebels - its a surprisingly intense, fun little coaster, but after 30 laps at one sitting, it got to be a little much on the body - not to mention the brain...but Ill be darned if it wasnt a real blast.

"Yes, SoB has given me my fair share of ass beatings, but Ill be damned if those werent the best ass kickings Ive ever had in my life!" Well said, Beastboy. Who ever said a roller coaster has to ride like a Chrysler Cordoba to be fun?
