5/29/00 PKI - Son of Beast!!

None

We arrived at PKI from Columbus at about 9:15. For the first time ever I got in the front row! We entered the park in awe at the vision of Son of Beast but decided to pass it up for the time being.

We headed over to The Beast and waited behind the yellow rope until the security guard let us through. Then we all stampeded over to the good ol' Beast. We waited about five minutes total and got in the front car. This was by far the best ride Beast had ever gave me. Incredible!

We decided to hop right back in the line. This time we waited 10 minutes and sat toward the middlish-back. The ride was still great.

We went over to Vortex, but it seemed to be running slower so we headed for "that one alien ride". The Outer Limits line was only twenty minutes so it was really worth it. We only had to wait three cars for the front so we took that. I kept my head out of the restaints (after the launch) and there was no head-banging.

Now it was time for Son of Beast. One guy said the line was three hours, the other said it was two. We ended up waiting about 3:15. They were only running one train which dissapointed me alittle, but I guess its better than not running it at all. The line was a lot more entertaining than the Millennium Force line. Last year that had a box that shook and made noise to advertise the ride, they opened it up and put the logo inside. The ride closed down briefly while we were in line. But, it wasnt that bad. We counted six minute intervals between the release of the train to its next run. The other two trains were on the transfer track being worked on by two people.

Now to the ride :)
The restraints were a lot better than shoulder harnesses and really helped the ride out a lot. As you leave the station you take a drop and go through a turn before hitting the lift hill. Oddly enough, the picture is right before the first hill! 吀栀攀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀猀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 氀漀漀欀 渀椀挀攀 攀猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀氀礀 挀漀洀瀀愀爀攀搀 琀漀 琀栀攀 䴀椀氀氀攀渀渀椀甀洀 䘀漀爀挀攀 漀渀攀猀⸀  吀栀攀礀 瀀甀琀 琀栀攀 猀眀攀攀琀 氀漀最漀 漀渀 琀栀攀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀猀⸀  吀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 眀愀猀 椀渀挀爀攀搀椀戀氀礀 猀洀漀漀琀栀⸀  吀栀攀 栀椀氀氀 眀愀猀 愀洀愀稀椀渀最⸀  䄀渀搀Ⰰ 琀漀 洀礀 猀甀爀瀀爀椀猀攀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 氀漀漀瀀 愀搀搀攀搀 琀漀 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀⸀  䤀 搀椀搀渀琀 琀栀椀渀欀 椀琀 眀愀猀 最漀椀渀最 琀漀 戀攀 愀渀礀琀栀椀渀最 猀瀀攀挀椀愀氀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 䤀 眀愀猀 眀爀漀渀最⸀  䈀攀眀愀爀攀 琀栀漀甀最栀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 爀椀搀攀 椀猀 䔀堀吀刀䔀䴀䔀氀夀 䰀伀唀䐀℀  䤀 挀愀洀攀 漀昀昀 眀椀琀栀 愀 栀攀愀搀愀挀栀攀 眀栀椀挀栀 䤀 愀猀猀甀洀攀 眀愀猀 搀甀攀 琀漀 琀栀攀 攀砀琀爀攀洀攀 渀漀椀猀攀⸀  伀渀挀攀 愀氀氀 琀栀爀攀攀 琀爀愀椀渀猀 愀爀攀 最漀椀渀最Ⰰ 琀栀椀猀 眀椀氀氀 戀攀 愀渀 椀渀挀爀攀搀椀戀氀攀 愀搀搀椀琀椀漀渀 琀漀 䬀椀渀最猀 䤀猀氀愀渀搀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀一攀砀琀 眀攀 栀椀琀 琀栀攀 刀愀挀攀爀 戀愀挀欀眀愀爀搀猀⸀  圀攀 爀漀搀攀 椀渀 琀栀攀 昀爀漀渀琀Ⰰ 眀栀椀挀栀 椀猀 爀攀愀氀氀礀 琀栀攀 戀愀挀欀 ⠀琀栀攀 猀攀愀琀 眀栀攀爀攀 礀漀甀 猀攀攀 琀栀攀 琀爀愀挀欀⤀ 㰀椀洀最 猀爀挀㴀∀⼀昀漀爀甀洀猀⼀椀洀愀最攀猀⼀猀洀椀氀攀㄀⸀最椀昀∀ 戀漀爀搀攀爀㴀∀ ∀㸀⸀  吀栀椀猀 椀猀 猀琀椀氀氀 漀渀攀 漀昀 洀礀 昀愀瘀漀爀椀琀攀猀⸀  圀攀 眀愀椀琀攀搀 愀戀漀甀琀 昀椀昀琀攀攀渀 洀椀渀甀琀攀猀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀吀栀攀渀 眀攀 爀漀搀攀 䄀搀瘀攀渀琀甀爀攀 䔀砀瀀爀攀猀猀⸀  吀攀渀 洀椀渀甀琀攀猀⸀  倀爀攀琀琀礀 搀攀挀攀渀琀 爀椀搀攀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀圀攀 眀愀氀欀攀搀 戀礀 䐀爀漀瀀 娀漀渀攀 愀渀搀 渀漀琀椀挀攀搀 琀栀愀琀 琀栀攀 琀栀爀攀攀 猀椀最渀猀 ⠀眀椀琀栀 琀栀攀 瀀椀挀琀甀爀攀 漀昀 琀栀攀 瀀攀爀猀漀渀 昀愀氀氀椀渀最Ⰰ 琀栀攀 挀漀眀 昀愀氀氀椀渀最Ⰰ 愀渀搀 琀栀攀 漀琀栀攀爀 漀渀攀⤀ 眀攀爀攀 愀氀氀 爀攀洀漀瘀攀搀⸀  吀栀椀猀 眀愀猀 搀甀攀 琀漀 琀栀攀 愀挀挀椀搀攀渀琀 琀栀愀琀 栀愀瀀瀀攀渀攀搀 椀渀 䌀愀氀椀昀漀爀渀椀愀⸀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀圀攀 最漀琀 椀渀 氀椀渀攀 昀漀爀 吀漀瀀 䜀甀渀 戀甀琀 椀琀 戀爀漀欀攀 搀漀眀渀 猀漀 眀攀 搀攀挀椀搀攀搀 琀漀 氀攀愀瘀攀⸀  圀攀 眀攀渀琀 戀愀挀欀 琀漀 刀愀挀攀爀 愀渀搀 爀漀搀攀 椀琀 戀愀挀欀眀愀爀搀猀 愀最愀椀渀Ⰰ 琀栀攀渀 栀椀琀 嘀漀爀琀攀砀 昀爀漀渀琀 猀攀愀琀 愀渀搀 栀攀愀搀攀搀 栀漀洀攀⸀  䄀昀琀攀爀 愀氀氀Ⰰ 椀琀猀 愀 猀挀栀漀漀氀⼀眀漀爀欀 渀椀最栀琀 㰀椀洀最 猀爀挀㴀∀⼀昀漀爀甀洀猀⼀椀洀愀最攀猀⼀猀洀椀氀攀㄀⸀最椀昀∀ 戀漀爀搀攀爀㴀∀ ∀㸀⸀  㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀吀栀攀 瀀愀爀欀 眀愀猀 挀爀漀甀搀攀搀⸀  䈀甀琀Ⰰ 琀栀攀 琀爀椀瀀 眀愀猀 最爀攀愀琀⸀  䤀✀氀氀 戀攀 戀愀挀欀 氀愀琀攀爀⸀  匀漀渀 漀昀 䈀攀愀猀琀 椀猀 渀漀琀 眀栀愀琀 䴀椀氀氀攀渀渀椀甀洀 䘀漀爀挀攀 椀猀Ⰰ 戀甀琀 椀琀 椀猀 愀 挀氀漀猀攀 猀攀挀漀渀搀⸀ 㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀ⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀⴀ㰀戀爀㸀਀䘀愀瘀漀爀椀琀攀 匀琀攀攀氀㨀  䴀椀氀氀攀渀渀椀甀洀 䘀漀爀挀攀Ⰰ 刀愀瀀琀漀爀㰀戀爀㸀਀䘀愀瘀漀爀椀琀攀 圀漀漀搀㨀  匀漀渀 漀昀 䈀攀愀猀琀Ⰰ 䈀攀愀猀琀㰀戀爀㸀਀縀縀縀縀縀縀縀縀縀縀㰀戀爀㸀਀ⴀ一椀挀欀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀㰀戀爀㸀਀ ⨀⨀⨀ 吀栀椀猀 瀀漀猀琀 眀愀猀 攀搀椀琀攀搀 戀礀 䬀椀渀最猀䤀猀氀愀渀搀䘀爀攀愀欀 漀渀 㔀⼀㌀ ⼀㈀   ⸀ ⨀⨀⨀ഀ਀ഀ਀ഀ਀ ⨀⨀⨀ 吀栀椀猀 瀀漀猀琀 眀愀猀 攀搀椀琀攀搀 戀礀 䬀椀渀最猀䤀猀氀愀渀搀䘀爀攀愀欀 漀渀 㔀⼀㌀ ⼀㈀   ⸀ ⨀⨀⨀

Nope no shoulder harnesses. :-) A lap bar is all it really needs.

It has a U-shaped lap bar. And yes, three trains will be running soon (hopefully). :)

I was sooo angry, because I went to PKI on 5/31 and SOB got stuck early in the morning, so they shut it down the rest of the day! I was so excited about it, too. : P

We are the ones who wait in line for hours for a 45-second thrill, and consider it time well spent.
