This is Ryan with 300 words (or less) to make your Monday a little less taxing.
Kings Island is home to a roller coaster that can offer one of the most terrifying nights in your life.
For this roller coaster that lives in the woods of the foothills of Mason, Ohio no exaggerations are needed. The later it is, the faster and scarier the roller coaster becomes. Having experienced a night-ride first hand, I have no words to describe the feeling except as the definition of fear itself.
If the Beast wasn’t the Stonehenge of thrill rides, The Son of Beast is the reason for the disappearance of the Mayans. The sequel coaster is (was) the tallest, fastest, and only looping wooden roller coaster in the world. The tainted roller coaster has slowly been claiming victims in order to ascend it’s father. The most notable onslaught injured 27 people resulting in the removal of the loop. Post “loop incident,” I rode the Son of Beast. It physically hurt and I had fear for my safety! I have never rode the Son of Beast again, and now do not have to opportunity to.
The ride has been removed from the website, no longer exists on the park map, and has had the sign removed (even though it’s still there). Kings Island closed it indefinitely because the only way to make it safer is to not run it at all.
This only adds to the strange folklore surrounding the Beast Legacy. This is definitely part of a bigger conspiracy. Yes, Kings Island is one of the best amusement parks because it’s hard to commission haunted scream-machine(s) from Hell. Is this sacrilegious coaster destined to have the same fate as Tikal, Guatemala?
