The Beast is a wooden terrain roller coaster built by the maintenance staff of Kings Island amusement park. The Beast is notable for its terrain-hugging layout, with only its two lift hills visible from within the park. Built in 1979, the Beast is still the longest wooden roller coaster on Earth at 7359 feet long with a 4:50 ride time.
The Beast is located in the Rivertown section of the park with an abandoned mill as its station. The ride takes place entirely in the woods, secluded from view, and passes through three tunnels. It's finale is a 540 degree helix that is partially enclosed. These elements have lead to it being a fan favorite at night, with no lighting in the woods or tunnels leading to an extraordinarily chaotic experience.
