After giving more than 1 million rides during its 40th anniversary season, the process of getting The Beast ready for the 2020 season began less than 24 hours after its 2019 season had ended.
The cars for The Beast are being transported this week from the ride to the Wood Coaster Maintenance Shop where each car will be stripped down to every last nut and bolt. Everything will be disassembled, looked at and rebult during the winter. All of the parts will undergo testing methods specified by its manufacturer -- Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters -- including magnetic particle testing, X-rays, ultrasonic and accelerometer testing and a liquid dye penetrant to detect every crack and scratch.
The work, done annually, is very detailed and will take approximately four months to complete.
