p. 792 - Camp Cedar campground to open in 2021!

Recommended Posts

It looks like they are taking it down rather systematically. I wonder what park they are going to move it to? Probably the same one where Perilous Plunge is going. Wow! That park is getting an awesome coaster and a water ride this year. Lucky them.

 

Maybe Dorney Park?! Or maybe Dorney will even get FOUR "new" rides: Perilous Plunge, Son of Beast, Space Spiral, and Disaster Transport!

I know you guys are being humorously sarcastic, but it seems as though Son of Beast and Perilous Plunge were both fantastic attractions in theory. Perilous Plunge proved un-reliable, and Son of Beast seems to have been built really cheaply. I kind of sort of want to go back in time and ride Son of Beast in opening day condition.

I rode it back in the spring of 2005 and remember thinking that it didn't seem all that rough, (it wasn't smooth, but nothing horrible) but that the ride seemed pretty boring outside of the first drop and the loop. Personally, I think if you've ridden a big Summers & Dinn coaster (Hercules, Mean Strean, etc) it had a similar vibe to it.

I rode it about a week or so after it opened. Trust me, it was no better then. The loop was the only interesting part, mainly because it was a few seconds where the ride wasn't trying to remove your spine.

The drop was the only part of the ride that did anything for me. Once you got past the fact that it's on a wooden coaster, the loop was just another loop. The same will go for the rolls on Outlaw Run and FeRat- they're just rolls, very much the same as the hundreds of others you can find on other coasters.
