 Review of Son of Beast @ Kings Island
2 Rating Posted by: tauren_man on 8/3/2008 12:54:00 AM
I went on this ride on my trip to King&#39.s Island. I had read most of these reviews, and saw that it had gotten panned left and right. However, I was still determined to ride this, seeing as it is such a unique roller coaster. So it was the first thing I went on, and boy did it wake me up. I liked it so much I decided to go on it again at the end, making it both the first and last ride I went on.

So here&#39.s the truth. Is it rough? Hell yes. Is it fun? I&#39.d definitely say so. Will you like it? That really depends.

You see, I am young, and the utter brutality of this ride did not bother me very much at all. I was nervous getting on it, but after riding it the first time, I realized that what some people consider one of the roughest roller coasters really isn&#39.t that bad.

Now granted, every thing after the first hill feels like you&#39.re riding a chainsaw around the track, and the trains don&#39.t help. They aren&#39.t very well padded, and they just look kind of... odd. On one hand, they didn&#39.t look very modern, like a Millenium Flyer would. On the other hand, they didn&#39.t look too classic, like the ones Kennywood uses. (I don&#39.t know the technical name for them)

So here&#39.s the big jaw-dropper: I prefered this ride to the Beast. Also, I prefered this ride to the Stunt Track, Flight of Fear, and Vortex. This was my favorite ride in the park.

It is rough. No denying that. I can almost guarentee you will walk away with slight back pains or a tiny headace from the rattling. But if you can look past that rugged property, a true gem of a wooden roller coaster emerges. Just looking at the layout reveals a true modern masterpiece. It is unfortunate the loops was removed. It would have been interesting to experience, but oh well. Anyhow, I reccomend this if you can take a few licks. You really have to have full-body control, and even when you do, you will bounce around the car like a super-ball. If you are not up for such a turbulent ride, I reccomend the Beast, which is a step down from this. But if you are up for it, I highly reccomend this wild sensation of a roller coaster ride. The site&#39.s description sums it all up: &quot.You&#39.ve never been on anything like this. Never before.&quot.
