I'm just here to test out the quick reply feature.

I mean, I'm really happy with all of the little changes they're doing to keep the park looking great!

A picture of the new ("old") paint scheme for The Beast this year....

Image

"The Beast has awakened from its long winter's nap to begin its initial test cycles in preparation for its 40th anniversary season. #KingsIsland #TheBeast"

And they also brought back the paw prints :b

Image

"This year mark's the 40th anniversary of the world's longest wooden roller coaster, The Beast, and we're pulling out all the stops to celebrate in a special way including bringing back the paw prints. #Beast40 #KingsIsland"

Say what you will about the Beast, but words cannot describe how much I love this coaster. And it warms my heart to see the park adding in all these nice touches to commemorate its anniversary!

I really like the new/old color scheme on the train. I think it's awesome that it not only looks better than the plain red train, but it also pays homage to the ride's history. Of course, all my memories of the Beast are with the red trains. But I love this color scheme and the fact that I know that it's retro makes me not hate the change.

Those all look very nice. Glad to see the Beast getting the attention it deserves.

These are the little things that I think guests WILL notice. Maybe not every little detail. But for all the things they're doing this year, guests are bound to pick up on some of them.

Anyone else see this? People on the first 40 trains of Beast get a commemorative T-shirt.

Man I really want to get that shirt but I'm wondering how crazy early I'd have to arrive to get on the first 40 trains? At least KI is good with organizing crowds (such as when Timbers was new) so I feel pretty confident that they'd lead people down so it wouldn't be a mad rush.

I really like the improvements the park is making this year. Here's also to hope they bring back any more of the Beast's original features while they're at it
