Kings Island (KI) Discussion Thread

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

Recommended Posts

That thing collapsed like a pile of tooth pics! I guess they cut the structure in some strategic places, otherwise it would not have fallen as fast. Then again, it is Son of Beast, with its "less-than-ideal" structure that's been sitting dormant for 3 years.

 

Edit: It also looks like the rumors of a large coaster taking SoB's spot are persisting.

From Screamscape

2014 - New Coaster - Rumor - (10/2/12) While we really haven’t heard much at all regarding plans for Kings Island in 2013, the early rumors suggest that the park will be getting a very large and expensive new coaster experience for the 2014 season.

Ive never got to ride this, but every review I have read was negative. Its just sad sad to see so much wood got to waste. This coaster didnt even last a decade. It just reminds me of the old ratler. They both have crappy layouts but are huge, but with treatment they could be great. Well hopefully what coaster they build in its place will be great.

I've been to the park twice in June 2007 and June 2010 and SOB was never open, so for me it's sad to see it go. Another coaster I will never be able to ride.

 

However, I'm hoping whatever they replace this with will make up for the loss!

Although it's quiet sad to see a coaster gets removed (doesn't matter how many times people called it bad a lost is a lost, besides I can't talk about it because I never ridden SoB ) it is always amazing to was them bring the ride down, and look forward on the replacement ride of the park. So what will replace SoB? Daughter of Beast?

No, on all seriousness I really see the park to go to Rockymontain for a new ride, and they won't surprise me with a ride like Outlawrun.

Mourning Son of Beast is like being nostalgic for one of your past migraines.

I rode the ride a few years after the loop was removed. It wasn't much to comment on and it was all levels of rough and bumpy because by that point I think SOB was just on life support. I rode the ride twice, regretted the 2nd time and moved on with my life. It's one of the few rides that I've been on or know of that I will NOT miss when it's totally done and gone.

 

When they decided to give it the initials SOB - they were right, it was an "SOB". *rimshot* *crickets chirp* Ok...that's my cue to leave now.
