A picture of the new ("old") paint scheme for The Beast this year....
"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"https://twitter.com/KingsIslandPR/status/1113908289014837254
And they also brought back the paw prints
"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"https://twitter.com/KingsIslandPR/status/1115710135882735622
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!
