Kings Island announces important updates regarding the rest of the 2020 Season. Learn More.
Today we're kicking off a new weekly series on the Kings Island Blog by sharing morning views from around the park. Our first "morning view" photo was snapped behind the scenes of The Beast.
Here, you see a Beast train as it roars through 35 acres of wooded terrain during an early morning test cycle. Every day The Beast goes through a series of operational, mechanical and electrical tests before the ride opens for guests.
Designed and built in-house by Kings Island personnel, The Beast, celebrating its 40th anniversary season, was acclaimed America's ultimate roller coaster when it opened to the public April 14, 1979. It broke all existing records as the longest and fastest ride in the world. It is still listed in the prestigious “Guinness Book of World Records” as the longest wooden roller coaster in the world at 7,359 feet.
