I 100% agree that this is one painful cookie, but ive noticed that if you ride it a certain way its not as bad. Its been a little while since ive set foot on this ride, but thats just how I remember it. It takes a while to make it up the lift hill and that gives me the jibblies sometimes. Maybe they have changed it since, but I remember the photo-op being at the beginning of the lift hill just as you rounded the corner, that was really weird. But that did not factor into the grade, just a side note.

This is my #2 woody after the Beast. I have been on over 40 wood coasters and found SoB to be the most intense coaster I have been on. One problem with this ride is the Vehicle. Because of the loop PTC train will not track well on this thus the Primier Ride trains. I agree with people about the design of the train. I have to cross my legs to fit relatively comfortably on the seats. PKI could redesign the train to make the ride more enjoyable. Whatever the reason, 1:1 and 6:3 are the worst seats of the ride which, of course, are the favorites of the roller coaster fans. Because of this, I believe many coaster fans do not like this hyper woody.

Whether ACE or any others coaster fans like or hate this ride is their opinion. I find it irresponsible and tasteless for people to say to burn this down or waste of money or lumber. There are many people like this ride for the intensity of the ride. Some people just cannot take it. If you cannot, just do not ride SoB. There are many people who will gladly take your place to ride this.

I think this is the most underrated woodie. It routinely gets panned. Its got height, good speed, throws you around (sorry thats what woodies should do) and a loop. Maybe they should not have called it Son of Beast cause nothing could live up to the father

Ohh, when is it over!?For GODS sake make it stop make it stop!!!.This is the number one worst coaster that has ever been my misfortune to ride.I abselutely hate this ride sooooooooooooooo much!All that was going though my head at the time was that this is one of the longest, most painfull coasters ever & Im on it.At the beginig it was O.K. - the stuff before the Loop.The drop was cool but every thing after is just painfull vibration and the blur of everything around me.As I was riding, it felt like I was like taking a trip to Hell because I was wishing that the ride was over the entire time.I guess theres a reason why the camera that takes your picture is BEFORE the lift because its before the brutal experience.At the end of the ride, all I could do is think of after the ride was how could anyone actualy endure that awful ride and live without being too scared or in too much pian to tell the story.When the train pulled into the station, I was so glad that it was over. As I walked down the exit, I told people ready to get in line that it was realy rusty today or that it just sucked hard. Im sure that it is really is a good ride because lots of people who gave rides like Ghostrider(my #1 favorite ride) a good review gave this one a good review too. Overall, this ride was a very unsucsesfull journey through the laws of physics, but it is still is a rather enjoyable structre to admire.This ride is definently not for those who have not been on very super thrilling rides before.Also if you are in danger of having anurisms, seasures, heart attacs, brain ruptures, or have eternal bleeding, please take my advice and aviod this journey to the bawls of the underworld at all costs unless youve wanted to know what being a vegetable is like.:devil:

Anybody that describes this ride as "smooth" is
not taking their medication as prescribed! If theres a ride somewhere that beats you up and spits you out, this is it.

200+ ft woodie! Its ridiculously fast for a wooden coaster. Much smoother than I had anticipated. Love the nasty attitude of this ride.

This was a cool ride, yes it is rough, but it is so fun. The first drop is amazing, and the loop is so cool. The double helixes are rough, but you cant miss the worlds tallest wooden coaster. When they say this ride packs a punch, they mean it.

Things I absolutely LOVE about this coaster: Speed, drop, loop, helix, frist drop out of station. Things Im not real fond of: restraint system. The ending of the ride is a bit of a let down after the huge beginning and middle. I dont find the problems with this ride that so many others do, its great fun and a good wooden coaster. Not as good as "daddy," but few coasters are. The speed is just unbelievable.

This ride was good. Thats the best I can say about it. This was a terrible waist of money if you ask me. The ride offers great speed, a loop, and great drops but the trains are way too unconfortable and they only have 2 trains on the track. whats up with that??? This ride is over 7000 feet long and they cant put another train on the track. Son of Beast is maybe the most over rated ride beside Magnum XL2000.
