Don’t go breaking out the Hawaiian shirts, sunscreen and flip flops quite yet. The Beast spotted its shadow at Kings Island on Tuesday morning, forecasting six more weeks of winter.
If you’re unfamiliar with the tradition, if The Beast sees its shadow it means six more weeks of winter. If The Beast can’t see its shadow, it means it predicts an early spring.
Every Feb. 2, roller coaster aficionados in southwest Ohio wait anxiously for The Beast to let us know what to anticipate.
Over the 14 years of recorded history, it is the fifth time the world's longest wooden roller coaster has seen its shadow and the first time in six years.
