Am I the only one who thinks this is sad? I feel bad for not waiting to ride it in 2009, and its been SO long. Plus, we are losing the only hyper-woodie in the WORLD! On the other hand, they've taken long enough to make a decision. Which leads to the obvious question - Will there be a Grandson of Beast ;)?

The one time I rode it in 2007 (post loop) was one of the most brutal rides I've ever had, and that was in the front row, too. Great first drop, but the rest of the ride was garbage. It's about time.

Good idea in GP language-

"You should remake the son of the beast as metal and make it an anneversery"

Now that I think of it, a good layout inspired by the old ride using Iron Horse or topper track could be put there, and if it was, say, 2015, that would be the 15th anniversary of the original opening.

I bet RMC could build a much better wooden hyper than what RCCA did. With the way technology and coaster design is improving, I doubt it would be long until we get more hyper woodies.

Finally that thing is gone! It really was just a waste of space and the layout was not that great of a layout and it would be very hard to modify. I'm having my fingers crossed that a B&M invert will replace it. ;)

It would be cool to see them continue the Beast family, sort of like the way they did with Hercules and Hydra at Dorney Park but with a RMC. The world needs more what-the-hell-is-that elements like on that project at Silver Dollar City. ;)

Though I have a hunch that they won't and they'll go with B&M. I dunno why.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
