It is still growling and prowling, after all these years. A legend in its own time, it is the holy grail of wooden roller coasters.

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. The idea for building The Beast actually began as a dream of re-creating one of the Midwest’s most popular old coasters.
