This is a classic terrain coaster and I can see how those who are not fans can ride and think "that's it?"

This coaster doesn't have a lot of hills, doesn't have a lot of airtime, doesn't have a lot of change in, what's up with it?

During the day the ride could almost be considered boring. You go down a fun hill, then over another smaller one; and then you pretty much cruise through the woods in a straight line (with trims), with a couple (not surprising) turns until you hit the second lift, and then it's some circle.

It's after dark when this coaster has a life of its own. The mist in the woods and the almost complete darkness (unless you're lucky enough to have moonlight), hides what is in store. Even if you think you know the coaster during the day; at night you're not going to know what to expect or what will be thrown at you. And the grand finale is what will stick in your head as you leave the ride.

Do not judge the coaster by a single daytime ride. You have not experienced The Beast until you're ridden it at night.
